Fall-ing In The Dining Room

I got busy on Wednesday making a burlap runner for the dining room table.
It felt good to be sewing again.  
Burlap is not the easiest fabric to work with especially when making ruffles.
Also, it's hard to get rid of wrinkles when ironing, kind of like linen.
Here's the tutorial I posted the other day.

Are you fall-ing yet around your house?

Very pretty. You did great with the ruffles.
My poor house is so confused. The bay window is Spring and the top of the entertainment center is Fall. Perhaps I should do something about that.

You did a nice job with the runner, it looks nice on your table. I agree it is very hard to sew burlap.
I can see a new blind in the background of one of the pictures.

Pretty! Love the chair with the books stacked in it. Did you get your blinds up?

I love the tablescape. The ruffle runner is different, did you make that or bought it? I am not ready for the fall decors to bring out. Enjoy your week.
