My annual donation of a wreath to Junior League’s Festival of Trees. I wanted to have an oceaney theme this year, but decided to have it be more subtly inspired. :)
My cousins recently had a sweet baby girl, and I sent this set for their baby shower. :)
I had a lot of fun sewing my mom’s birthday gift this year! I made her a set of placemats, napkins and napkin holders.
I took tons and tons of pictures! And then I accidentally deleted them.
Here are some pics she sent me from her birthday dinner and a later breakfast!
I recently decided to save some money by using cloth napkins instead of paper towels. Plus, there’s a certain elegance and sense of occasion with cloth napkins. I love that!
This was a pretty quick project. I used some fabric I already had on hand. I cut newspaper to make a pattern that measured 17 by 17 inches. Really, any square size would work.
The hardest part was the minted corners. The fabric didn’t keep a pressed fold very well, but I muddled through. I think, all in all, they turned out quite well!
Pretty neat, right?
Aren’t these fun? I made them recently for some friends. Almost all of the materials came from my scrap pile. I love how the owls and flowers coordinate so well!
One of friends earned a promotion, and I put this card together just before meeting to celebrate over dinner. I love when good people get rewarded for their hard work and talent!
