The past weekend was a quiet one and I spent much of my time working around the house. Temperatures remained in the high 60's and rain. I decided to get to work on a fall table topper I've had on my to-do list for awhile. I can honestly say, I don't like how it's coming out. I'm not fishing for compliments but just sharing that every once in a while, something doesn't turn out the way you had hoped. I did not choose a green that is dark enough to make it stand out from the background fabric so now I'm trying to come up with a way to make those areas shine. Probably some kind of decorative stitching. I'm not much of an orange kind of gal, so I'm not feeling it. Lesson learned. Now if only I could find a way to make fall pink.
I did manage to get my sewing room rearranged, cleaned and organized. You only get this shot because I'm too embarrassed to show you my fabric stash. I am now on official lock down. My goal is to not purchase any fabric until 80% of my stash is gone (I kid you not). Batting and thread are the only things on my approved list for quilting. I'm pretty excited for this self-imposed challenge and I'll let you know how I'm doing.
My girl got her vintage dress swapped out for more autumn looking attire. I never thought I could have so much fun outfitting a dress form!
I'm ready for a slower pace to my days and for cooler weather. I even put the fall wreath on the front door. I can handle the orange on the outside of the house. Hoping your Monday is off to a beautiful start!
