Saturday Sewing and Eating

I was able to sew some simple projects today and do a little cooking! I made the 4 napkins and coasters with the deer/natural theme I have been planning to complete.

This is my cutting mat, rotary cutters, candle and diet store brand cola. I was all set. The cutting mat and one of the rotary cutters was a birthday gift from my sister a few years ago. I can't imagine sewing without it now that I've gotten used to it.

Here is the fabric about to be cut.

These are the finished napkins and coasters.

I cut the place mats out and they are ready to sew as soon as I can round up some quilt batting. I have been using my left over pieces so much lately that I'm not sure I have enough to finish the place mats. I may have to purchase some more!

These are two mini wallets I made to match the pocketbook I made a couple of weeks ago. I have already filled these up with "stuff" and put them in the pocketbook.

This is what our lunch looked like today. This is a pork loin purchased for 50% off. I just seasoned it with salt and pepper and roasted it in the oven, but intend to try some other tastier recipes next time. (Thanks Penny for the new recipe:o) This is a typical Southern meal, pork and black eyed peas, and very easy! I'm thinking about purchasing a couple more of these before the sale ends to freeze.

The roast sliced beautifully and I made sandwiches from it for my son's lunchbox tonight. I've been trying to put more homemade foods in there instead of just the standard ham sandwiches and chips. I know he appreciates the variety! I would!

Your coasters and napkins are wonderful. I am making 24 napkins this week. Did you use a pattern for the wallets? I need to go back and look at your pocketbook.

Fun. I'm jealous, it'll probably be awhile till I can sew again.
