While my mom was here, we went to Joann Fabrics, one day. They were having a sale - a BIG sale and I went and looked through the clearance fabric choices. All of the clearance fabrics were 50% off!! So, I was hoping to find some great deal, but didn't know what I needed or wanted really - just am drawn to all those fabrics!!
While I was looking, I found a fabric that was maroon with a creamish/yellowish floral pattern. I loved it. ABSOLUTELY loved it. I told my mom that I was buying a bit of it, but hadn't a clue, yet, what I would do with it but I had to have some. She suggested a table runner and I thought that sounded great since I didn't have one that I cared for.
I got home with the fabric and as I was looking it over and contemplating just how I would create a table runner... I read the verbiage on the selvage edge... "HS - ERICA" from the Home Seasons collection! Do you think that there was a REASON that I was loving that fabric... that it was just calling my name and I couldn't leave without a piece of it!?!!!
Anyway, onto the project...
It is nice and long and drapes over the edges of the table and hangs very well, now. At first I thought I might be disappointed as it didn't want to lay down!
The striped fabric was in my fabric closet stash as a left over from drapes/curtains in my last home. I really liked that fabric and was pleased to see I could use it again and it coordinated so well - even without having it with when I purchased the "ERICA" fabric!!
Of course, I still have my spring bunny on my table and some great big artichokes that are real... and you can tell because they are starting to wilt a bit and need to be eaten... SOON! Maybe I'll make a plan to eat them up tonight!!
