This little baby dresses up a Fall table right nice! Do you know what it is yet?
I did not like the color in the center of the piece so I had to ge it covered up. Bright cobalt blue might be hot, but I never took a shine to it. Afterall were trend setters, not trend followers.
I covered the center with a neutral linen fabric.
You dont really need to know how to sew to do this. It could have just as easily been done another way. Can you say Stitch Witchery?
I think this is the give away image.
If you guess apples...you are incorrect. Ah hahahaha!

OK......so Ididn't sew it myself (had you going didn't I?), but I came up with the idea. Does that count? TeHe! This is a sneak peek at something I created for the Country Living Fair. One of my assignments was to come up with an autumnal dining experience and this one (as they often do) started with the textiles. I'll give you a hint at what it was. Have you ever bought projects and gotten a start on them only to realize the project was just too big for you? Me too. Off to the closet they go, carefully packaged...never to be seen again. I found such a piece at one of my favorite haunts and put it back in to use as a table cloth. What is our mystery piece-o-junk?


BTW.... I will share the rest of the setting later gator.....

Did you make this?
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.

Great looking item either way... Posted: 10:10 am on September 22nd
RustyDiva writes: Perfect for a Fall table! I would have guessed coffee sack too because of the "Columbia" ~ NEVER would have guessed a rug. Way to go Sue.
