More for nostalgic reasons than anything, I love to try and follow the cute dishtowels’ suggestions for particular chores on specific days of the week. You’ve probably seen dishtowels embroidered with the following:
Monday – Washing
Tuesday – Ironing
Wednesday – Mending
Thursday – Marketing
Friday – Baking
Saturday – Cleaning
Sunday – Day of Rest
Sew on Wednesday can mean anything from sewing a button on a shirt to making a full-blown quilt and anything in between. It can also include any type of needlework. Even though I always have some sort of stitchery in progress, for this particular week, sew on Wednesday means a new tablecloth for The Turnaround House.
Sometimes I get an idea in my head and can’t find what I want so I have to make it. Does that ever happen to you? I’ve been looking for a vintage blue and white checked tablecloth for a while now but couldn’t find anything I liked. Instead, I found a 1930s reproduction fabric at a great little fabric store here in Bountiful. I ended up making a cute tablecloth out of the gingham fabric using my Kenmore 12-Stitch sewing machine that my parents gave to me for Christmas when I was a Junior in high school.
The lightweight blue and white tablecloth is perfect for the Spring and Summer. I’ve already used it as a picnic blanket as well. I love to pair it with a white pitcher that has daisies in it to complete the vintage look.
Do you sew? What projects have you completed lately? I’d love to hear about them in the comments below.
