back to reality

it's the first monday of the new year. 2011. i hope you had a great holiday. this is my first sewing project that i finished on my staycation, just in time for our new year's eve dinner for 18. a grey wool table runner.

i love its texture against the farmhouse table. it's actually a cross between a table runner and tablecloth. it unfolds and stretches almost to the sides of the table, purposing as placemats also. i'll give myself an "A" for creativity (saved myself from buying/sewing placemats) but a "D-" for practicality. hmmmm, how will i wash wool when somebody spills on it?

back to my break. there was a lot of this going on. a lot.
between tv watching, movie watching, reading, baking, cooking, eating and visiting. and i loved it. and sad it's over.

now it's back to reality. back to this filling my days.

happy new year to you.

Happy 2011, Pam! You deserve an A for creativity, for sure. I guess you can make another in a different/washable fabric . . .
