WOW: Mid October..Already?!

WOW = WIPs On Wednesdays
One of these mornings I'm going to wake up to find out it's Christmas Day, just like that. Well, that's how days feel to me right now. I'm in a complete fog and my feet have barely touched the ground I've been so busy. It's just been one of those years I think.
So, because I don't have anything better to do, I decided to make a tablecloth. Because, why not? Of course I have many other things I should be doing, but we have a tradition of making a new tablecloths every birthday (I don't know how this started) and I was all out of ideas. Then I found this fabric in my stash and it's far too lovely to just be sitting on a shelf. As you can see from the above pic which has flowers on the table, Lily Rose on the wall and these roses spread out for us to enjoy - the women of this house are somewhat flower crazy! 

I stitching two halves together to cover my enormous table and then over locked the hems and voila - a new tablecloth. We all love it. Over the top? Of course!

What's Your WOW?

  2. Some years, or even decades are like that Esther. I think I worked so hard that decade that life itself simply blurred away. Or maybe I was just running from the mall bangsand enormous sholder pads :)
    The wedding dress was gorgeous, thanks for sharing the journey~
