Whoo hoo...this week we are sharing our kitchen projects! Lets face it, the kitchen really is the heart of the home, for most of us. Even the die hard, "I hate to cook" girl that I am, doesn't mean that I don't love my kitchen.
While mine is a bit unconventional, it's my favorite space, because I put in all the things that I absolutely love in it when we remodeled. And YES, the contractor thought I was a crazy person! What can I say. LOL!!
My kitchen is where all the good times happen, "sew" it was time to make a fun new topper for my table. When I "spied" this cupcake fabric at the store...I went home and right to work on it.
This "crazy" bright, new party topper is just what my kitchen needed.
My "Crafters Edge" Crossover II machine and triangle dies made it quick and easy to cut out.
Once it was complete...
With the leftover fabric I made these potholders, that crazy enough
were the perfect fit for them.
OK, so the potholders are either just a silly decoration, or a fun mug rug,
either way they really put the "P" into party!!!
So if your in my area, grab your "shades" and drop in for a cuppa.
I will be happy to break out my bright topper for ya!
Heck, you might even find a "real" cupcake or two, too.
Hummm two, too...is that a thing???
Thanks Carla for being our "Hostess" with the "Mostess" this month.

Your table topper is perfect for brightening up any day. I love that cupcake fabric. And the hot pads are so sweet, and can also be used for small mug rugs. I would really love to visit your kitchen and have a cuppa and a chat with you.ReplyDelete
Your table topper definitely gets the party started! I love the cupcake pot holders, which would be wonderful mug rugs too.ReplyDelete

That is one happy party table topper! How I wish I lived near you I would love to have a cuppa and party.ReplyDelete
Joan, you write such a fun, happy post. Who could possibly not be in a party mood now, first thing in the morning. Especially if we get to sit down at this awesome bright, full of party vibes table mat. The giant cupcake potholder/mug rugs are a kick! I feel like an adult-sized child here on your blog today! And I can’t wait to have a cupcake or two too!ReplyDelete

Look how bright you are. Love it. Your cupcake pot holders really are fun on your topper. Thanks for hopping with us. You always bring the smiles and giggles.ReplyDelete
What a sweet way to start my day. yeah I said it, someone had to. Seriously the yellow makes that great cupcake fabric pop, and your ever active imagination was right on with the mug rugs. I'll stop on my way for a cuppa or a glassa and pick up the sweets.ReplyDelete
This is wonderful. Bright and happy. I love the pot holders with it. Yup who cares what the contractor thinks. It is your space and that is what counts. Thanks for sharing happy today.ReplyDelete
Now that I see your dining space, I would have named your quilt topper, "Cupcakes on Safari", lol!!! I am sure you will have lots of fun parties and lively conversation around your topper.ReplyDelete
I love that you have an " unconventional kitchen ". A kitchen should be up to the owner and if a deerhead and bright tabletopper are perfect for you, so be it. I love the closeup of how nice the corners are.ReplyDelete
I have a metal art airplane propeller and a big pig picture on my kitchen wall so I would feel right at home in your kitchen. Just don't serve me deer meat because I couldn't take those big brown eyes making me feel guilty. LOL Seriously, I love your kitchen! The table topper is incredible in those fabrics and it looks right at home in your kitchen. You rocked the kitchen theme on this one!ReplyDelete
Adorable table topper and potholders/mug rugs! Love that cupcake fabric is perfectReplyDelete
What every kitchen needs is a cheerful table topper and hot mats. Your set is so much fun. I can imagine a great spread of cookies, cakes and candy on it. :) Cookies, hmm, I think I need to make some cookies. lolReplyDelete
