So there I was catching up on blogs.
Trying at all costs to avoid doing any laundry or cleaning.
Oooohhhhh! What's THAT?!
I like those!
So I found some cording I had and waited patiently for 2 rolls of toilet paper to be used.
Blah, who am I kidding! I am waaaay to impatient for that. I dug through the trash!
I did everything like in the tutorial trying to keep my burns to a minimum. I didn't use jute cause I didn't have jute. This is the same cord that I used on my door hanger thingy. It's a 4mm macrame type cord.
Kinda plain though....
....so I glued on some white buttons to dress them up. This is the only thing that I did different. She made her embellishments removable to swap them out. I'm too lazy to do that though.
Houston we have a problem!
I don't own ANY cloth napkins to use in my cutesy napkin rings. Taco Bell paper napkins just don't look right in them either!
So I made some of them too!
I dug around in my fabric pile formerly known as my fabric bin which has overflowed the bin and is now a pile!
Don't say you can't make napkins either. Yvonne at Stone Gable did a fantastic tutorial on making napkins. She also included all you non sewers too! Isn't she the best?!
Now we have a new problem....
Argh! I have been seeing these all over blogland and now is the perfect excuse to make one!
To the fabric pile!
It's amazing the amount of junk I have squirreled away! Including the 10 yards of unbleached muslin that I used to make this.
I didn't use all 10 yards, just 2 1/2 yards.
Now with my everyday Pier One dishes that I love. My kids kept on breaking just one dish out of the sets I kept on buying. My husband also read on the internet that stoneware dishes leach lead into food when it is warmed from even setting hot food on them. My oldest did poorly in school and was taking medication for ADHD. I picked these dishes cause you buy them individually. So if one breaks you don't have to get rid of the whole set. They are also porcelain.
A year later and we have taken my daughter off the meds and she now is a A and B student. Even on the student council.
Anyways.... now I need a centerpiece.
She is such a ham! I just plopped some mini daffodils in my soup tureen and covered up the dirt and shopping bags that I used to hold it in place.
To everyone who wish Brianna a happy birthday, thank you! She was just all smiles reading your responses. Know that....
