Sew in Love.

After I finished up a friend's curtain panels, I was on a major sewing kick.  I had just purchased this beautiful citron-ish fabric a few weeks ago, and knew it'd tie perfectly into our house...it was just a matter of where I'd use it.


I decided a spring runner for the dining room table would be perfect and got to work.  I cut off a piece the fabric...making sure I left plenty of yardage for other projects.


Then I started pinning just like I did with the curtains {except I kept a smaller seam this time} and ran things through the sewing machine.


I'm a big fan of how the yellow pops against our dark wood dining table.  I'm just sewwww in love with it.  See what I did there?  Yup, I'm a nerd.



And don't forget to enter my very first giveaway with Modern Masters!!

  4. Looks great! The yellow definitely pops off that dark table. And the colors work great with both the curtains and your buffet.

  13. Love it. I don't have the patience for projects like these, wish I did. Instead I stockpile all sewing projects until I can't stand it anymore and do them all at once :)
