|Doing my best Vanna White|
While the cruise was a lot of fun, I'm glad to be back home with the kids (mostly, it was a rough morning).
I didn't plan much for craft day with Little Miss today because I'm hoping she'll join me outside this afternoon as I get the garden ready. It's looking very ugly. Ugly enough that I have no interest in keeping it real and showing a picture. You all know what winter does to gardens. No visuals necessary.
It was my turn to take over the dining room for a mom project. An easy one, because I'm still working on some big things in the reception hall. Just something to bring a bit of spring into the dining room...
This tablerunner is made from dishcloths: the cheap kind found at the dollar store.
My table seats 8-10 without the second leaf. I used 5 dishcloths and stitched them together with a zigzag stitch. The advantage of stitching it down this way is it is flat. If you do sides together, you end up with a seam.
If you select dishcloths with a directional pattern, make sure all the cloths you have match end to end. You don't want to end up with a straggler that doesn't quite match and have to hang off the end of the table people don't see unless they sit down. Not that I'd know anything about that.
