Here it is the beginning of a new year and while everyone seems to be making wonderful and thoughtful New Year resolutions my time has been spent doing one of the things I least like to do.
Now in the grand scale of things making ruffles is really not that horrible but it does require yards and yards of fabric and it is very time consuming. Years ago I found out that the best way to do this is to lay down crochet thread and use the zig-zag stitch on my sewing machine to sew over it. Then pull the crochet thread to form the ruffles.
The reason for all of this, making a new table covering for the little round table in my living room. With the new color scheme the old one no longer fit in.
After a lengthy search I found both the fabric and the decorative cord online. I wanted something to match the color in the new wallpaper with a rosy-pink accent to tie in with the drapes...this is pretty close.
And here we are...all finished.
I like using this table to display wedding photographs, I think it adds warmth and personality to the room and since they remind me of some of the happiest days in my life I just enjoying looking at them.
What's next...making pillows to match the newly upholstered davenport, they will absolutely have no ruffles!
