My inspiration came from a small table topper that my good friend Denise made me last year. It's currently, on my dining room table under a fall flower arrangement I have in an antique pitcher. I just love the colors and the size is perfect. I have really enjoyed it this winter.
The last two weeks, I have been traveling for work to some very cold environments compared to what we have here in Southern California. First I was in Montreux, Switzerland and then in New York City, where the temperatures were below 35 degrees (F). This made me long for spring time and working in my garden.
World Trade Center - Tower One - New York City, New York
To make this long story short, I decided to try my hand at making a dresden table topper for spring time to put on my dining room table. I also am trying to stick with my New Year's resolution to use up things that I have and not to add so much this year.I used up some scraps I had left over from making an apron for a secret someone!
So I made this table topper out of a 8" dresden pattern. I combined two of my favorite things - dresdens and prairie points!
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it.
