Easter doesn't have to be pink.

I decided to use a different color this year to decorate my table . Last year it was pink and green, and all the traditional colors one thinks of when thinking of Easter. So this year I went with a different color.

Yes, Orange… as in carrots and bunnies.
Then I added a wide band of cream colored lace. I think nothing says Easter like lace.

I made the under layer in plain orange {I can see halloween coming}. Then found this wonderful flowered print with an orange background that matches the orange color. I don't think it could have been any better suited. 

The little sheep are so cute, and there are little fluffy checks, as well as a bunny or two in the basket.
My Easter basket has a collection of flowers, berries, ribbon and an egg or two in a natural colored basket.

Even the tea towel is orange with a carrot design woven into the fabric. I guess one doesn't have to use only pastels to show off an Easter basket after all.
I really like it. Don't you?

Cramming with style…..

When you have a limited amount of space, and a lot to put into it… that's what you call it.
  I've been looking for a sewing table that would fit many needs. Yesterday, after UPS brought my new table, and I put it together, came the crazy part. How to get it all in there and not feel cramped.
  My sewing/computer room has it's limits, but I had faith it would all fit …. somehow!
  I'm still moving stuff back in, but at least now, I don't feel like a sardine in a tiny can.
What do you think?
The new table….

A new table for my old Singer


A workbox {stuffed with scrapbooking supplies}

The computer section...

More storage….{ one can never have enough}

And the new table opened out into extend space for cutting or working on a scrapbook...

Pretty neat I think….
