a table thing


I couldn’t stand it… I had to use some my new Elsie’s Kitchen fabric for something. I made a table topper of sorts; the overall measurement is about 19″square. If I were a centerpiece kind of girl, I’d leave this out on my kitchen table with a vase of fresh flowers on top. Not that I dislike centerpieces, but I have projects spread out on my kitchen table far too often for centerpieces to be practical.

While I was doing the triangle edging, I got the idea to make kitchen curtains with a triangle bottom trim. I like this fabric series so much that I’m not sure if I care that the colors don’t match my counter top! In retrospect, I should have used the olive mini-dot fabric instead of solid olive… solids just look more, um, solid when paired with busy fabrics. Something I’ll have to remember for next time.

And so I have decided I want my kitchen color scheme to be this:

    Btw, I love the color scheme.

  5. Hi there! I just wanted to make sure you’re aware that your blog is in the queue for the Fiber Arts Bloggers ring, because you don’t have any code up. I just sent you the code again–please let me know if you don’t get it? I’d love to get you back in the ring. :)

  6. […] mine just pointed out that there is scrapbook paper in the same pattern as the fabric that I have chosen to use for my kitchen. I’m thinking a matching recipe book would be mighty nice. Currently, my […]
