Posts Tagged ‘spring decorating’

I really enjoy decorating my home, especially kitchen and dining room, to celebrate holidays and the change of seasons.  My mother taught me to sew, and I’m so glad she did.  I sew home decor projects all the time.  I have sewn everything from furniture slipcovers, pillow slipcovers, placemats, napkins, curtains, table runners and more. 

I have a large collection of table runners and cloth napkins that I have made over the years.  They really last a long time.  Every season I have so much fun pulling out and displaying the things I have made. 

I also have a collection of accessories that I have collected, some from my mother and grandmothers, some I have purchased.  I decorate my tables with these items.  Every year I try to come up with new and different combinations–adding in new items as I buy something that really appeals to me. 

Here is a table cloth I made for a small round table in a corner of my dining room.  I placed my Belleek porcelain on it.  I like grouping things together in collections.  The Belleek reminds me of spring!

I am very fortunate that I learned to sew at a young age.  I have been able to make lovely things for my home and family.  Because I make it myself, I can have things exactly as I want and save money. 

I have written several articles on making cloth napkins and table runners.  I hope you’ll check them out 🙂
