    So glad to see your fun work I sewed 2 tablerunners today for my kitchen table. I used some fabric I’d been saving for whatever came my way. One side is blueberries on the stems( navy blue and light colored polka dots backgrounds). The other side is a multicolored outdoor scene of different birds and birdhouses. I used the 10 minute tablerunner pattern given to me by a friend. I added decorative stitching on the borders. Voila!!! LOVE IT ! Wish I could post a picture of it. Oh well. Going to work on fabric boxes tonight to give as gifts to friends. Blessings!

    Beautiful job on the table toppers! WAY more hand stitching than I want to do, though.

    Those cups are from Starbucks, aren’t they? I have one, from Houston, where I used to live. Maybe next trip I’ll get one that says Texas.

    I would love to find one or two of those old Coke boxes, and exactly for that kind of thing.

    What an eye-catching beauty this table topper is! That fabric is scrumptious! The only spiffing up I’ve done is knitting cotton dishcloths to match my dish towels. I so enjoyed choosing yarns to match the colors in the towels. Be blessed!

    Dear Dori, thank you for sharing your beautiful creation! I don’t think I have ever seen a cheerier “table runner/centerpiece”. I wonder if it’s possible to not smile when seeing it? I doubt it. :):) As for me, I am not a fabric artist but; I do collect vintage doilies and lace etc. which I have all over my home. Have a great rest of the Summer! Tammy

    I think your projects are just adorable! I so enjoyed seeing the steps I wonder if the waterproofing product you used would help keep fabric from fading outside on my deck tables Would love to make cute table cloths for them Thank you again for sharing your talents and awesome projects!
