I actually made something today....besides food, I mean.
I saw this idea on a blog on making table runners using cloth napkins.
When I read it involved NO SEWING, and it only would take 15 minutes, I said I can handle this.
Table runners are much harder to find than cloth napkins.
So I was excited about finding some napkins I like, and seeing if I could make 4 into a table runner.
I found these at Target last night.
Then today, I followed the simple instructions on this blog, using stitch witchery and my iron,
and who would have thought....it worked!
I am so not a craft person or sewing person.
I would much rather admire what others make. Kim and Kris made me several beautiful table runners that I use nearly every single day.
Now I can envision myself finding old vintage cloth napkins at thrift stores
and making them into table runners. I know, shocking statement coming from me.
The only problem is I was so excited about this project, that I woke up at 5:30 this morning. (with me it's the little things)
Now it's only 8 and I feel bedtime coming on.
I use to get up early like this when my sons were small.
I would be so excited to see them that I would often wake up at 4am. Like a kid on Christmas morning.
That's what motherhood did to me.
I know, I know, I've forgotten most of the hard times. (my journals remind me)
I think I'm in the selective memory phase of life. A most wonderful place to be.
