In my “First Ever Treacle and Ink Giveaway” I passed along a set of Easter eggs that were made from my fabric set – that is, the set of fabrics from which I made my own tablecloth set last summer. This was before I got my sewing machine, the one I had previously had been broken beyond repair, and so I did the entire set by hand. Yep, just me, a needle and thread, and endless Jane Austen movies and classic BBC Miniseries. It was quite an undertaking, and at one point I really began to wonder if I had it in me to see the project all the way through. Thankfully, I did manage to finish it, and just a short while later, my sweet husband gifted me with a sewing machine.
The time has come to share with you my tablecloth, the one that started it all! As you can see, the color inspiration came from my curtains since they were already in the kitchen.
