Admiring Ruffles

If you haven't had a chance to see the March issue of Country Living, and you are not stuck indoors with another dumping of snow, I suggest you pick up a copy.

 I bought mine today and was really inspired. One article, Ravishing Ruffles, made me think about adding more ruffles, pleats and gathers to items in our home.

 But first, I took a look at some items with ruffles that I have already made. 
I also remembered some cute dessert plates we have with a ruffled edge:
This weekend I'm going to try to make a few other items with ruffles.

  1. I know!!! I'm so over the moon in love with ruffles now too! Would LOVE for you to show us step by step how you made those fabulous drop cloth pillows. I'm embarrassed to say I don't know how to make a ruffle or box pleat yet (straight lines for me so far as a new sewer) but I'm game for trying & these are gorgeous!

  2. I love ruffles and loved this issue of Country Living too! Those pillows are beautiful! Thanks for stopping by and leaving such a sweet comment. Can't wait to see the open shelving you are going to do. I feel so out of the loop with all my blog friends and will be catching up. :) Have a wonderful Valentines Day!

    Hugs to you,
