Tidy Little Package
If you sew all weekend and don't finish your projects, you, too, could wake to this kind of a mess on your dining room table! How I long for a sewing/craft room; maybe some fine day.
When my sister took her Christmas cactus last Thursday (wasn't it lovely that I got to enjoy all those blooms one more time?), she discovered that the center of the crocheted table topper had rotted completely away. It was nasty! She might have tossed it, but I rescued it and told her that I'd see what I could do.
This is what I could do...
It's a linen inset instead of a crocheted piece. I hope that she'll like it.
(Thanks, Teresa, for the suggestion to appliqué the embroidered pieces I was quizzing you all about here. The thought remained as you can see!)
Don't you love it when things all ultimately come together in a neat and tidy package?
Now I wish that I could say that I was spending my time on this charming, quaint porch (that would be quite a feat since it's not mine... ;>), but it's back to the sewing machine for me.
(allowed to stand)
Have a wonderful day!
