Sewing for Stress

It's been a long, stressful week. I decided it was time for some late night sewing therapy.

I found this vintage tablecloth at a yard sale a couple of weeks ago. I paid $3 for it.



I'm enthralled with the color yellow right now. The pattern on this tablecloth made me kind of giddy.

Here it is now... one package of seam binding tape and a few easy measurements later.

Isn't the bauble trim fabulous? Yep, I thought so too. :-)

Thanks, Dani!

Diane - I can only wear yellow if I have enough brown on to counterbalance it. I'm really an earthtones girl. I'm just so excited about yellow that I have to sneak it in once in awhile :-)

It's beautiful!! I have always loved the gray/yellow combo. Have you twirled like a ballerina in it? Good for you that you can spot the possibilities in a $3 tablecloth!

Looks great on you... I'm not a big yellow fan, but you carry it off beautifully!

Wow, I would have never thought to do that. Now I'll have to keep my eyes open.
