Not one to renege on my promises…..here is post number three of my get back up to date out of semi-retirement (though, technically if you count the random alliteration post ~ it’s actually No.4 LOL) !! Sew nicely is how I have been spending my spare time, getting stock ready for the Christmas rush (well..I hope ;-)!!) in my little on line Etsy shop . Trying to cater for all manner of tastes when it comes to festive dining??!!….from the traditional, as shown here, in this beautiful hand quilted set of twelve…to many new quirky, colourful, original and unique designs below……
Again, quite a traditional set of twelve, though with a less formal theme aimed at the young at heart…of course 😉
Now then!! If you really want to add some colour to your Christmas mealtimes..??…these ”Rockin’ Reindeer” Place Mats and matching fabric Coasters/Mug Rugs, should definitely do the trick!! Traditional Christmas colours with a modern ”skewed” design twist 😉
Another modern take! Colour themed around the central printed cotton squares, I have selected and added fabric strips in co-coordinating colours to bring the different coloured backgrounds together as a bright bold set, which can be brought out year after year! As all my sets are made from cotton fabrics with a 100% cotton wadding, they can be laundered in a machine (YAY) and ironed…. to have them looking as good as new after every mealtime!!
Having been caught out last year, by a customer who wanted extra to match a set she’d bought from me (which I didn’t have, but managed to make a coordinating set to match in for her)….I decided to make a few more smaller sets, which can either be bought as stand alone or add on sets for larger dining tables!
And, then back to traditional! A beautiful hand quilted Festive Table Runner ~ and it’s still not quite the end of August ~ so, still time to get a few more Christmassy things done 🙂
Sew!! Missing I may have been, but, slacking..well, not really! And it’s definitely nice to be back amongst you All !! 😉
I love the table runner… I bet it looks great with some candles and it needs not more decorations, it’s a decoration by istself :o)
Aww thank you for your lovely comments. I think you’re right, candles would set it off perfectly! 😉

Definitely not slacking 🙂 I’m an old fashioned gal who loves the table runner best 🙂
aww thank you 🙂 must say a runner is much quicker to make than a set of 12 too 😉
Wow, that’s a lot of sewing and more lovely festive table sets, no less. I love your modern versions best – so different.
Thanks so much Sheila ;-)!! Just hope other’s find them as exciting in time for Christmas…some year down the line LOL !! 🙂
