Skirt Work



I learned about "skirt work" from one of my favorite blogs, Just Another Day on the Prairie. Stella and I spent the last several day doing some actual skirt work. We sewed and painted new Punkin's Patch table covers and skirts.

The three sheep on the left (our Equinox Farm logo - Boudreaux, Buddy and Heidi) are for a 4' table. Marcel and B. Willard (if he ever grows up ;-) Hank and Comby (who's been feeling a bit neglected since Betsy "took over") will hang on the left side of a 6' table and Iris, Punkin and Handy on the right.

Years ago (we're thinking maybe seven!) Stella and I hot glued the old burlap table cloths together. Seriously. Hot glued. They are still holding strong, but look a bit worse for the wear having survived a couple muddy floods running through the booth, dogs hiking their legs on the corners (!), people setting down and promptly knocking over beverages...

I think these are a nice upgrade. Thanks, Stella!

Wow! This will be a big improvement over the burlap table coverings. Whats also nice is that these covers display your painting talent as well as show off some members of the beloved farm family.
Thank you Stella for helping make those seams so nice and straight!!!

Wonderful work! Be careful - someone will be wanting to buy your table covers right off the table! Hmm...maybe you should start a sideline of custom ordered vendor booth table covers with people's logos painted on...... in your spare time, of course.

Those skirts will sure make "best dressed" tables around!

Your skirt work is ever so beautiful. I also enjoyed the walnut dying of the previous several posts and to top it all off....the spinning leaf!

Now I WANT to capture a spinning leaf!
