from me to you....a little giveaway

Ready for fall decorating? I made up some ruffled burlap runners last week and decided to share one with one of you.

P1010091b

The runner is 39 1/2” long and 13 1/2” wide. Each is graced with two white muslin ruffles that have been frayed along the edges, hand gathered and machine sewn onto the nubby burlap. I love using mine on my old trunk/coffee table & on the dining room table.

Instructions on how to enter the giveaway is at the end of this post.

P1010099c

P1010021g Mr. Janome has been a busy helper these days helping me sew my first pattern up that I designed to sell….. I will be sharing more about this next week and hopefully will have the pattern ready to sell by then. The project has been so fun to design and even more special after being invited to make them up with Elizabeth’s new fabric line, Red Rose Farm! (Thank you, my friend!!) The fabric is beautiful, soft, feminine and wonderful to sew on. For now, it is available to purchase at The Fat Quarter shop. OR….HURRY over to win a fabulous bundle on Elizabeth’s blog! Just click HERE to do so!!

P1010018i

P1010106c

Duhgall and Fiona are my faithful little buddies and are usually by my side while I sew. They are really good at catching a good snooze or waiting patiently for a treat.

P1010015j

To enter to win the runner, just leave a comment on this post. If you don’t have a blog or a way to comment, you can email me at sweetcottagedreams1@comcast.net. I will choose the winner on October 11th. See you then!

Gosh, I don't know what's cuter, that Scotties or that table runner...hmmm...the Scotties win, but wait!

I'll still accept your table runner for my farmhouse, if I'm lucky enough to win it, it'll be right at home here, Becky!

junquegypsy said...

I love the table runner - you did such a nice job. Your scotties are adorable (I was lucky enough to have met Fiona at Knights Ferry). My own "hefty" (as the vet put it) sweet scottie has to be on a diet but the good news is - she's already lost a pound and one-half. Hope I win your wonderful giveaway.

sissie said...

I love the burlap runners. And, of course, your doggie babies are so cute.

I would love that runner. I am getting some new bedding for fall/winter and the texture of the burlap would look lovely as a runner on my bureau!

ginny said...

my one regret is that I never learned how to sew. I so admire anyone who knows how to use a sewing machine.
So I now have to resort to depending on someone else's talents to get the pretty things that are unique and one of a kind. Please enter me in your giveaway.

Slowpoke said...

Thank You for the opportunity to win such a lovely tablerunner. The ruffles contrasted with the burlap makes it fit any decor. You have amazing taste and talent. I too have been waiting for the Red Rose Farm collection. Almost like vintage sheets :-). Always gratefully yours, Luba
