Beautiful Blue Table Runners!!

 

Blue is such a wonderfully relaxing and comforting color!  No matter where you live, it can remind you of the sky, the water, a relaxing day at a spa. Blue will work in any environment.

These pretty blue table runners are made from a wonderful soft and nubby 100% cotton fabric that is reminescent of old fashioned grainsacks. Just added to the shop, these wonderful runners are a great way to add color and warmth to your home for the spring and summer months.

If you are in the Phoenix, Arizona metro area, stop by Vintage and Vino in Queencreek May 18 & 19 and see them in person.  I’ll have some available for you there!

 

 

 

What’s Coming Up……

It’s getting to be that time of the year again! Busy, busy!  And my thoughts are constantly whirling around, thinking about what I can do that hasn’t already been done.  Coming up with new ideas can sometimes be easy, other times, not so.  Here are a couple of my new shop items  for the upcoming season:

An update on an old favorite, a grand Christmas wreath!  Made from Moda – Basic Grey- Fruitcake fabric line.  I love these fabrics!  And I think that the cranberry & ivory dotted grosgrain add that special touch.  This lovely wreath will add a big impact to any door, measuring 18″ across, and 17″ around the stuffed ring.  Watch for others, I have plans to make more from the same line of fabric, but different prints and colors.

I so fell in love with this fabric:

Also from Moda, this is a heavy weight cotton towelling.  I knew when I saw it that I had to think of something to make with it.  The organic feel and texture, and the natural look just drew me in.

So I came up with this simple red striped table runner  (since some don’t want ruffles), and this ruffled table runner.

Who can resist this wonderful nubby cotton runner, with ticking added to it?  I love it! Perfect for that natural look all year round, or just to add that touch of red for the upcoming holidays! You can find all of these items now listed in the shop.

Stay tuned, more goodies are coming! Thanks!

My Shop was Featured!

I was so humbled when Jennifer, over at TheLittleShopof Stitches  approached me and asked if she could feature my Etsy shop, The Stitchin’ Chicken, on her blog. And who can say no to such a request! So it is with great pleasure (and lots of blushing…..) that I thank Jennifer for such a wonderful job! Here is the post!

She even included Creative Trims!  Please take time to go by and visit Jennifer and her store ‘ TheLittleShopofStitches’ where she has some wonderful quilting fabric, patterns and notions for sale.  I know all of you love fabric as much as I do!  And catch up with her over at her blog ‘Stitched Stories’, where you can see what she’s up to! Also make sure you check out her facebook page and ‘like’ her.

I hope that all of you have a wonderful Easter weekend and enjoy time with family and friends.

Thanks so much for your support! And hopefully, I will have some pictures of my monthly quilt along blocks for you to see!

 

 

 

 

 

What I’ve Been Sewing…

Wow, things have really been busy here!  I thought that I would share just a little about what I have been up to lately…

I have been working on a new line of items for The Stitchin’ Chicken  shop, which I am calling my ‘Cottage’ line.  I have collected several fabrics that work great in ‘cottage’ or ‘shabby chic’ styles of decorating, and I have had some ideas that I have been wanting to try out, adding small ruffles to the fabric baskets, and some simple flour sack towels.  I really like how they have been turning out, and I think that they will work great for spring and the wedding season.

I have only done two sets so far, but have some others in mind.  I will be expanding into other bags and pillows out of similar fabrics as we move further into spring and the Easter season.

These towels can also be hung from clips and used as a curtain across a window.

It’s great to be able to see some projects that I have had on my mind, come together! It’s so energizing!

I have also been working on the organization of my sewing room, that I mentioned in my last post.  There will be more about that soon, just a couple of projects to do to finish that as well!

Thanks so much for coming by!
