Joyful TableScapes

Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,

   Since our move I have been itching to decorate for fall, and I finally got a chance to do that this week. Fall is one of my favorite seasons. I love the decorations and the smells.

I found these wonderful leaves at the dollar store, and I knew they would make a lovely table runner.

I laid the leaves out to match the length of my kitchen table

I pinned each one together so it wouldn't dance around when I began to sew it. Putting those pins in these paper leaves did make for a challenge. I can proudly say I did not rip one leaf. 

I had to sew it in two parts because it was so stiff

I knew I was going to love it when I saw it hanging out of my sewing machine. I love it when things come out the way you want them too.

I had to do a lot of stop and going, so there were a ton of loose threads.

The final product came out so lovely

After I had the perfect table runner the only thing that was missing was some Pyrex and mini pumpkins

I only had one "P" so I had to make due

Enjoy a lovely fall evening with a warm cup of tea and a good book.
