Our community center was holding a wreath making....class? party? get together? Whatever. My next door neighbor Judy and I went, the deal being pay $3, make a wreath for the Comm, and one for yourself. The greens are donated by the local Christmas tree farms. I made the bow at home; not bad for a rank amateur.
That caused Judy to invite me to go to the holiday formal, fondly known as "The Comm Prom", with her and her husband the next day. Black tie affair: did I have a long dress? Of course! I had a new dress, and was all set!
Judy told her husband that he was escorting the 2 hottest babes in town. He didn't disagree.
Meanwhile, back at home, I knew that Kellie was hosting the potluck Christmas dinner that her group of friends holds every year, rotating the host. So I wanted to make her some Christmas napkins. I made 12, and thought they were very festive.
Then I talked to her 3 days before the party, and discovered that she had 18 people coming! Oh, no! She would have to choose who was good enough to get a fancy napkin, and who had to live with a paper napkin. Couldn't have that. So off to the fabric store I raced, only to discover that my original fabric was gone. I'd say my second dozen were a close enough coordinate to the originals. I also made her 4 trivets to match, but, of course, no pictures of those.
Finally, I wanted to send a present to the relative in Denver. Easy peasy! Trivets, a set of 8 napkins (I'm not gonna lie, I didn't get the cardinals positioned correctly; they all look like they're napping),
and a frilly apron (please don't mind the fact that I sewed the pocket upside down; think of it as cardinals doing gymnastic stunts).
Like I said, it's good to stay busy.
Up next: Adorableness involving narwhal fleece. You'll see. Adorableness that must be done by Friday!
Happy Monday, everyone!
