Sewing Table Toppers...
In having my sewing machine returned and in good sewing repair and in sorting and purging fabrics from my enormous stash I made a decree that I would finish and sew some table toppers I have needed for a very long time. It turned out to be a grand idea and took very little time.
This dresser topper looks the same as it has for many years however now it is sewn and not just folded along the edges. And now it is reversible for another pretty look. This is in our guest bedroom and is one of my very favorite rooms. It is all antiques and sentimental pieces everywhere. In fact some day I want to be a guest in my home.
I only sewed three toppers but they are the most needed and used that I have been waiting a very long time to actually make. The Rooster topper is on my kitchen desk top that is currently our laptop station and it is keeping the granite counter safe from scratches.
This little table is next to the guest bed and I am shocked at how guests put water glasses and other stuff right on the wood of this antique cherry table. Now it is a little bit protected by the fancy cloth topper. I am continuing my organizing of my sewing room but at least stopping to be creative along the way. I can't go overboard and make toppers for every surface in the house for Mr. C would not like that. However these are not disturbing his peace for now.
As California continues to burn with raging fires we remain safe for now. We are staying indoors due to all the smoke and really bad air quality. We were out for a few hours on Saturday and my throat became craggly again so home for me and more apple cider vinegar gargling. The past few days have been so horrific with the fires that now hundreds of homes and vehicles have burned. The devastation is beyond belief. And still no rain is falling to help the fire fighters. Thank you my friends for all of your prayers and well wishes.
I am keeping this brief as I really do need to complete some of my planned indoor chores. And I am continuing to participate in Random Acts of Mail so I have lots of cards to prepare and send out.
