You can see how deep the snow is and that it was one third up over the bottom of the side door.
The placemat fiasco all began at Christmas when for some reason I counted incorrectly how many people I was having for Christmas dinner. I had decided not to use Christmas designs or fabric this year so I set about to make placemats and a table runner for my dinner table. I thought I was having 10 people for dinner and made 10 placemats but because I can't seem to count I was one short. There were 11 at the table. Right then and there I decided to make 2 more placemats so that I would have an even dozen and hopefully that would be enough placemats.
I now have a dozen of these. This pattern is called Fine Dining.
I also made another purse using a pattern that I used before from my new magazine. This pattern is called Sweet Pleat.
I made this with upholstery fabric. The strips in the middle are assorted pieces of upholstery fabric sewn together to make the pleat.
