This is what I get to enjoy now thanks to a little crafting....
The colors are so pure and bright. They do the work all by themselves!
Here is the before....
I'm still discovering what our little Mississippi town has to offer, and I discovered a tucked away Hancock Fabrics! They had this wonderful cloth marked half off!
I knew that I could use it to somehow help my sad table, but I am without my sewing machine! It's one of a handful of items still to be moved from Georgia. I will probably be able to get it over here when we go visit for Thanksgiving, but that's a whole week away! I need my table to look pretty now. So, I turned to Stitch Witchery.
I knew the grass green fabric and the blue and white would look perfect in the kitchen, so I cut out the fabric for a simple table runner.
Where I would have stitched, I stitch-witched. It actually was more difficult and time-consuming that sewing it would have been, or at least it was for me!
It still resulted in a nice, pretty seam, though.
I also knew that I needed something else for a centerpiece besides a single pumpkin plopped in the middle of the table. So, I do what I often do when I'm in the mood for a change....I go searching around my house for things to switch around.
I had these bottles in a windowsill, and I pulled out a beautiful cake stand we got as a wedding gift....
It may look a little funny to have a runner on a round table, but I love how it turned out!
Amos, of course, supervised.
Simple. Elegant. Much better than the "before," right?
(P.S., I linked this up to Table Top Tuesday!)
