I bought this table runner a few days ago at Hobby Lobby for 66% off, mostly because when I saw it, I didn’t see a table runner, I saw a purse. I love its colors and at $5.00 (give or take a quarter or two), I couldn’t pass it up. In my head, a seam up each side would make a really cool pocketbook and the flap can be trimmed with the already existing fringe, with enough fabric left over to make a strap. Super cool, super easy, right? Pay no attention to the fact that I don’t know how to sew, it’s two seams, how hard could it be? Right? Bigmommy is bringing a portable sewing machine when she comes to visit tonight and knowing me, I’ll be up all night, trying to make a purse from a table runner, using up all my best swear words in the process. Oooh, another trip to HL for purple thread, which I’ll need for the side seams that may be my Waterloo.
Mr. Iknead and I had some oh so precious one on one time with the Stuttgart grands last night, when they stayed with us overnight so Bigmommy and Bigdaddy could also have some precious one on one time with each other. These babies are pure gold, went down for the night without a whimper, slept through and I woke up to sweet snuggles this morning.
Sprout and Pawpaw
Then, when I thought it couldn’t be any sweeter, I had some serious one on one time with the Sprout, while everyone else went to lunch. These special times seem few and far between, so we made the most of them. I fed her lunch – bananas and oatmeal if you’re interested – gave her a dry diaper, followed closely with a bottle and then put her down for a nap. So precious!
Copeland, if this dish looks familiar, it is, I have Aunt Veda’s dishes and use them every day. We’ve eaten a lot of beans and cornbread off these, haven’t we?
