We have never broken a single dish. Figures cheap dinnerware scathes misfortune but the fine crystal has succumbed to mishap. Every year we manage to break a least one glass during the washing process.
I have made placecards each year and fold the napkin differently each time. Below is a close up of the placecard. My brother says I am too elaborate but I just love taking some time out of the preparation to do something I enjoy--crafting.
This is a picture of my favorite dish. It is a glass turkey that I use for the cranberry sauce. I just love him. Well, enough of that, how about some stitching. I managed to stitch up this Cat's Whiskers design which was way deep in my stash pile. I didn't like the color of the silk it came with so I switched it out with a Silk n Colors--Autumn Leaves It is stitched on Light Mocha Belfast. This first pic shows the stitching complete. The following pics show you the finished scissor case. I have made several of these and love them.
Can you see why I chose this floss color?? It matches my stork scissors which are now tucked safely inside
Since I updated you on our Thanksgiving I thought I would share this finish with you. I stitched it in time for Thanksgiving but not enough time to have it framed. It is Plum Street Samplers --Thankful for Thee. It is stitched on 35ct Olde Town Blend by R & R with the called for NPI silks. I just LOVE working with NPI. Well, that's it for today. My stitching chair is calling and I have two 12 hours work days ahead of me. Thanks for stopping by.
