Now you can see.....
why I had to remake
The recipients are probably thinking maybe this swap wasn't such a good idea. Not to fear, they are going in the reject pile. Seriously, what was I thinking? Some days....
This was a week where I was off schedule. My granddaughter Fallon was in a district wide spelling bee. Seven schools competed and while she didn't win, her school did and they got to take home the big spelling bee trophy.
I have never been to one before and talk about nerve wracking! Oh it was fun though and I hope to go again next year. The kids were adorable and there were some tears. We were cheering for them all.
Tonight we are having some friends over for dinner. It is not fancy but I like to set a pretty table to make it feel special. Over the years I have found lots and lots of damask napkins. At first I avoided the ones with the initials on them, unless I found my own. Now it makes me wonder who took the time and love to embroider these so nicely. It's a shame if no one uses them.
I even ironed them this morning to make them look a little nicer. What do you think these initials are? I also like the size, they are big to fit your lap and stains seem to come right out. I even like them wrinkled.
Lastly, I am hooked on these EOS lip balms. I think the packaging is cute and they work great. The pink and white one smells like coconut suntan lotion and brings you right to the beach! I have them stashed everywhere.
Thank you for all the nice comments on my UFO pile quilt. It was a really fun exercise and I hope to do it again.
