Wednesday-Working like a crazy woman!

Hi again. I joined in on Leslie's What are you working on Wednesday....I have been in a vintage mood. I took a vintage tablecloth that I bought from Etsy and cut it up and made some pillows from it.
So Saweeeeet! I think I need to get some more and make some more. I'm in a pillow makin' frame of mind. I see naps in my future too!
I also have worked on a table runner for my table. I seem to have a lot of red, green and yellow goin' on!

Here it is on my table finished. I posted my tablesetting yesterday, you can scroll down and see it all. Tomorrow I will show some more vintage pillows I made!
See you all soon!

Darlene said...

Saweeeet is RIGHT! I absolutely LOVE that pillow!!! Love that table runner also. Man, I wish I lived closer so you could teach me how to make a pillow like that!!♥

The pillow is just too cute! I see vintage stuff at the antique places and walk past them. I should dig, huh? And I love your table runner :)

When I was little, we lived on a farm. It was my grandparents farm. We only had cows but I know what you're talking about. Dad would go up to check on them before calling it a night and it was always the worst times when a cow would be in labor. I remember one night we ran up there quick with our Dad and ended up having to help pull a rope to try and get a stuck calf out! Oh, the joys of farming :)

Have a great day :)

Hello Debbie; I love the pillow you made, how you cut out the fabric for the long stem Rose is just wonderful. And the table runner is just so pretty. You have done a great job......

I love your table runner. I even own that yellow fabric with the cherries. It's hiding in my stash. You have inspired me to get it out! Love the red with it.
