Finished some really simple place mats for Christmas. They will go 2 to my daughter and her husband, they have an empty nest now that the youngest has flown. The other 2 to my oldest granddaughter and her husband. They have not started to fill their nest yet so only the 2 of them too. I will send them before Christmas, cause what fun is it to have Christmas place mats the day of Christmas then you have to pack them away? They are reversible and slightly different in the binding. One set is bound with the red snowflake fabric and one set is bound with the Christmas Words fabric.
The book mark is an oriental looking fabric, in burgundy, teal and gold. The book is our book club's reading selection for discussion in January. It is Russian Winter by Daphne Kalotry. It's hard to see in the picture, but the book darts are little copper arrow shaped pieces that slip over the edge of the page. Cool!!!! Below is a little bit better picture of the Verse Keepers by Book Darts.
So I guess I did have something to write about after all. This evening I will grind the cranberries for my family cranberry salad recipe and make the cornbread for the dressing. I am going to try a new crockpot dressing recipe that I have tasted by never made before. Will let you know if I am successful.
Stay Busy and Stay Happy
