Table runner

Been wanting a table runner in our Dinning area forever, but haven't found the right colors, so went down to Hobby Lobby bought 1 1/4 yrds of fabric, spent only $6. Cut it down to 2 pannels of 17x45 in. Sewed one end right sides together, then zig zagged the edge. Folded the sides in and sewed first, then sewed the ends. If you don't want a seam down the middle you can buy 2 1/2 yrds fabric. Sew easy!

Welcome Fall!

Every year I decorate my front door with a wreath celebrating the next season. With every house we've lived in I've decorated the kids rooms as well, it signifies who's room is whose and makes it fun to see every day. When we moved to this last house I hadn't put up my son Jack's cowboy hat yet, and he said "Mom, when are you going to put the hat on my door-how do I know which room is mine?" Silly enough we'd been in the house several months, and he is 7yrs old. I think it's his way of saying he likes it there!
