Red Checked Kitchen Accessories
My daughter has a red theme in her kitchen and so I made her these red checked napkins, coasters and the bow on the wooden spoon. The wooden spoon is one I have had for over 30 years. This fabric was in one of my surprise scrap bags a friend gives me. Its 100% cotton and has a weave in it just like "real" napkins. Its so much fun to go through the bags and see what I can come up with for absolutely nothing.
I've haven't used the zigzag feature on my sewing machine very much, but I'm really beginning to like it! My machine is old, but well made and solid. It only has a straight stitch and zigzag stitch. Here is a picture of my machine posted a while back.
I'm still machine quilting the wolf wall hanging that we're going to use for a dog bed. I've committed to working on it a few minutes every morning before work. I don't have too much left to do. It bothers me to have to many UFOs/WIPs around.
I have so many ideas in my head for projects that I can't sleep sometimes at night!
