I've been working on a couple of new fall decorations recently. This first one was an idea I found on Pinterest. Do you pin? I wanted something new for on the mantel and this was quick and easy. I found all the supplies at Hobby Lobby and at the grocery store. All the items at Hobby Lobby were on sale for 50% off and I figure I can cook and eat the grocery items after a quick rinse when it's time to replace fall with Christmas. 🙂
I started working on this table runner a couple of weeks ago. I found the pattern up at the Cherry Pit Quilt Shop in Seiverville, Tennessee the last time we were up in that area. It is an overwhelmingly beautiful shop. I bought this pattern thinking that it was time to replace the fall table runner that I have used for many, many years. When I dug through my stash I was able to find enough fabrics to make the runner without having to buy anything. This was the first time I have tried to do the buttonhole stitch applique on the sewing machine--I have always done it by hand on past projects. It was a lot of fun to do. Here's a picture of the applique portion:
Here's a picture of my helper, Adelaide, while I was refilling a bobbin:
I'll try to post a picture of the finished product soon--that will be a good incentive for me!
How about you--any new fall projects in the works?
