These Cherries Don't Have Pits
Slobber on Me
Who Drooled on My Cherries?
That's not Ketchup.....that's a Cherry!
Napkins for Gnomes!
While requesting a clever title for this post,
THIS is what my family came up with.
I'm glad I don't require this kind of help everyday.
In an effort to keep up with my Christmas goals for 2009,
I decided to test drive a set of Crochet Edged Napkins.
I concluded on my very own that we did not need napkins the size of a small country. So many of my napkins are HUGE and we use like a corner of it. Do we really need 17" of material to wipe the mustard from our face? The grime on our fingers? The spills on our shirt?? I think not.
I had to adjust a few things from the original idea.
This is not a tutorial.
This is my journey. Come travel with me.
I smell a Made-for-TV drama.
I started with cotton fabric.
My napkins are 9" x 11" (approx)
They are double sided? double faced? two-faced??
They act one way at lunch and another way at dinner.
I sewed all the way around it and then a big "X" in the middle.
I used a large zig zag for the edging.
My crochet thread was size 10 and
I used a size 12 crochet hook for the whole thing.
Now to decide who gets napkins for Christmas.....how many do I make?
Just enough for the family?
8?? Because everyone needs 8?
Do I make 24 so they can have Thanksgiving dinner with them?
Do I get fancier on the edging?
Will Martha turn me in to the napkin police if mine aren't big enough?
Does anyone really care?
These are the questions of the day.
I'm all ears.
Speaking of ears.....have you made yours yet??
