Transitional Elegant Tablescape |September 2016

 Good evening y’all!


I hope your weekend went well, mine was very productive weekend. I did a lot of cleaning, organizing, redecorating, and a bunch of window shopping! Today I uploaded a vlog about my ‘Transitional Elegant Tablescape’. I love decorating my dinning table that Ken & I purchased from Worldmarket. In the vlog I talked about where I purchased the items that are on my dinning table. I have a Pinterest  board called Home Sweet Home, where I pin most of the home décor that I have already purchased for our home. As well as home décor items that I would like to add to our home. Like I mentioned in the vlog a lot of the items I already had and now re-using in a different way.


For those of you who don’t drink wine these lovely bottles of sparkling water and soda are the perfect choice for you! I hope you enjoy my transitional tablescape!

Feel free to check me out on all of my social media sites @marionlovenotes to see more.



P.S. I almost forgot to mention that Worldmarket has Halloween theme wine bottles, that would look great in a Halloween inspired tablescape. These wine bottles are a perfect touch to any adult Halloween party that you may be hosting are even a great hostess gift to give when going to a party!

Disappearing Nine Patch Quilt Top (pt. 1)

Good Morning Darlings!

I recently went on a road trip to visit my family. I was staying at my Aunt’s house while I was visiting with my family. While we was eating breakfast Sunday morning, I was talking to my Aunt about the Turning Twenty Quilt top that I am currently working and how I am looking for a different quilt top to do next. She suggested that I try to do the Disappearing Nine Patch Quilt next, so that’s what I decided to do. I did not have my camera on me to record the first part of the process, but I did take plenty of pictures.

I used fat quarter for this project and cut them down to 6x6in squares.

I layed the squares out on the table of how I want each block to be sewn together.

I decided to enterchange the middle square (purple  and yellow/ green) to add interest to the blocks.

I used a 1/4 in presser foot to make sure each block was sewn evenly.

I sewed the rows together 1st then press each seam.

I like to press my steams open, because  I think it looks nicer. As shown below when I sewed all the blocks together.

Above and below are pictures of how the blocks look when you sew them together.

There are a few more steps with sewing these blocks together to make the whole quilt. I hope you enjoyed me showing y’all how I sew the Disappearing Nine Patch Quilt top together.

New Creations on my Etsy Shop!

Happy Monday! (yeah I know back to work)
If you follow this blog you know I have an etsy shop called ‘Marion Renee Creations’ that I started back in 2011. My goal is to work from home and let my online shop supply my financially needs. In order for me to be able to do that I would need to spend more time creating and promoting my shop. So I decided instead of dreaming about how great it would be to work from home, I need to get busy and put in some serious work. I am not a business person so be patient with me, but I promise I will try my best. On the right of this blog post you see a small rectangle that shows some of the items that are for sell on my shop. There is also a link above that will take you directly to my shop. On my etsy shop you will find handmade crocheted, knitted, sewn; scarfs, hats, fabric napkins, quilts, and so much more. These items make great gift ideas for baby showers, house warming, graduations, and I’m sure you can find something special for you! I do take custom orders so if you like an item on my shop but would like it in a different size or color do not feel afraid to ask. 🙂 You can also give me suggestions on what you would like for me to make next as well!
