So, I really was having trouble coming up with ideas. I wasn't thrilled with the fabric line or the colors. Couldn't figure out how to use the fabric in my house...needed to find someone to gift. My mother just moved into a new apartment and it is very stark right now. She loves coffee; she needs apartment decorating; her new furniture has the major colors of this fabric. Perfect.
While waiting for the fabric to arrive...and still no plan, I was aimlessly wandering through a local antique/collectibles store and found these for $2 each.
Now, I have direction. (Too bad I don't know how to adjust the time and date on my camera).
A reversible table runner. The good side.
And, the not so good side...don't ask.
Next was a set of snack size placemats. Notice that one is for a left-hander...me.
Now, we need something for the wall above her table.
Close-up of stitchery to give more texture and dimension...
Okay, I still dislike coffee, but love this fabric. This picture was taken on day 4 of rain, rain and more rain. But the sun decided to peak out just long enough to leave a shadow across my handiwork.
The remaining antique store placemats will become chair pads with coffee cup ruffle.
