Can you believe Thanksgiving is this week? Holy cow, that was fast! It feels like Thanksgiving really snuck up on me this year. I had a whole stack of projects that I wanted to try, but am pretty much out of time.
One project that did get finished was a new table setting. I found this really goofy fabric at a local fabric store by my job and just had to have it. Since Pi wouldn't even entertain the idea of a turkey fabric skirt, the place settings were the next best thing.
The setting consists of a placemat (pattern here), cloth napkins (pattern here), coaster (pattern here), and a napkin ring (pattern here). It didn't take very long and I got to practice my binding.
I'm especially fond of the napkin rings because its much easier than it looks and you can recycle a cardboard ring from your plastic wrap. Talk about low cost material!
There's also been baking, lots and lots of it. My jeans are getting snug. But this is not a problem to think about the week of Thanksgiving. I'm sure I've got some sweatpants somewhere. heh.
Blueberry muffins and caramel brownies
To confirm that I'm completely out of mind, I started THIS quilted advent calendar. Nevermind that I've never appliqued or made sashing or free motion quilted. Ummm....yeah....totally over my head.
Man, I love a challenge!
I don't think I ever shared the brownie recipe. If anyone wants it, let me know and I'll post it. They taste as if you spent forever on them, but are super simple. Definitely a crowd pleaser!
