And since it had been so long, I had forgotten what to do with a dresser. What do you put on it? Should I buy a big mirror for over the top? Start collecting porcelin dolls and displaying them atop the dresser? I didn't know.
And so everytime I passed by it, I closed my eyes and pretended it wasn't there. Rude. I know.
But now I have mustered up some courage (and inspiration), and have decided to conquer dresser project 2010.
The first step was to sew a runner.
I dug through my 'special scraps' and recovered some Anna Maria fabric that needed a home.
After some quick log cabins, I made the sashing with some dark teal linen. We call this color 'Holly Blue' at our house. Because I love it.
And then, because I wanted to watch the World Cup and I couldn't bring my sewing machine on the couch, I hand stitched around the squares.
Which is the very opposite of lazy. Or something. And so now I have a runner. And I can't wait to show you what happens next! (but I will wait, because not everything is here yet ;)
