More Projects

I don't know about you, but I have been in the cleaning, reorganizing, and updating mode. Trying to get drawers, closets, and sewing projects done. Last week I showed a couple of table runners I made for the dining room. This week I'm showing one I did for my office. I put it on top of the antique library table in there.

I've had the material for three years (found it in a closet, smile). It was the left over from my curtains.

Out came the machine and the sewing began.
I used the fabric on the right.

I could have left it plain but at the last minute decided to add the bow to match the chair covers.

The chair covers are reversible so I featured each one on the chair backs.

I can easily remove it if I have to work on the table. It's purely for show.

I usually am at my desk talking to all my blogging friends, like you. smile

Thanks for taking a look today and don't forget to visit Kelli at There is no place like home for more Show & Tell.
Have a safe and happy weekend!

Oh wow this is wonderful. You are one great decorator and I love the chair covers and the fabrics are stunning. Love the style of your window treatments too.

I am in the same mode of cleaning out, reorganizing and configuring closets,drawers and such. Maybe it is early spring fever and cleanup.
Now we can picture you on the computer when we read your posts.
You are always an inspiration. Makes me want to go redo something. LOL

Have a special Valentine's Day!
hugs, Celestina Marie

You are one talented seamstress! Lovely projects, and what a great spot for your computer.

I'm trying to reorganize and clean out, which seems odd as we haven't even been in this house a year, but believe it or not there's still things that weren't unpacked!

Happy Valentine's Day!

I have also been in cleaning mode the past two weeks and I also enjoy sewing and making things for my home. I love the table runner you made and the curtains. I especially love the chair covers. You have done a great job and your room is beautiful.
