Charming Ruffles

Spring brings out the "country romantic" girl in me. I have been having so much fun making pretty gingham and floral things that make me happy.


I made a pillow for cuddling with in front of the T.V. and it is already becoming a favorite!


It will also be nice to use outside in this beautiful weather!


Lacie shows off how her dress matches the new pillow...


I also made a new table runner--I can never have too many ruffles on the table!



I just love it--a puddle of ruffles on the table!



This fabric is one of my favorites. I got it about a year ago..it is called Durham Anew Fall '11. I added the pink gingham to it (found it at Goodwill and I think the color is perfect).

I have done a few projects with this fabric collection...


Basket Remake


Fabric backed bookcase

I want to make lots of pillows for the house in different fabric collections I love. I adore fabric--especially pink florals with aqua.

It is so much fun to make something pretty with a favorite fabric!




I hope this finds everyone taking time to enjoy spring! The weather here in Oregon is just beautiful right now!


Thanks for visiting!

I love everything you have made with this beautiful fabric. Lacie's dress is my favorite though. But that's probably because you made that for me lol :) . The table runner turned out great!! I had forgot about the cute basket you made, it's soooo cute!!!

What a pretty post. I love the table-runner with the puddle of ruffles. So cute with your ball jars. I love cushions and pillows too and especially on outdoor furniture. Yours is very pretty.

Oh Sandy it's all so pretty, I'm in the mood to make too at the moment. When I get off here,I'm going straight to my sewing room. I must admit I've been trying not to buy any more fabric,but after seeing yours I feel like going out and getting some pretty stuff. My stash is getting very low and I've used all the best stuff. :)

You started sewing when you were very young, and have become an expert at creating beautiful table runners, pillows, doggie dresses, etc. I'm so happy that Annie and I get to be some of your recipients.
