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.

Its so much fun to go through the bags and see what I can come up with for absolutely nothing.

I have so many ideas in my head for projects that I can't sleep sometimes at night!
