and i don't mean that in the way of my sewing work being sooo amazing! i mean- it's been way, way too long since i posted anything, right? i know. you've no idea what my life has been like lately. and you don't need to know...in fact, it's better if you don't know.
the good news? i've finally sat my bum down on a dark cherry wood, wooden table chair and sewed a few straight lines. this ended up looking pretty cute, i think. i usually only use placemats when we have dinner (or lunch on sundays) guests. i decided to make some for just every day use. it'll make eating a happier experience if i can look down at some nice bright colors to cheer me up. not that i'll need so much cheering up, but because i like to be happy. you do too! maybe you should make some too.
bon appetit! (thanks julia!)
