I also found these cute linens. I really don't know why I'm still buying linens. I have so many, but I just love them and can't pass them up if they are cheap. I especially love the little fork and knife holders.
Yesterday Isabel came over and we had a sewing day. She is getting ready for her sale this weekend at the Portland Expo Center. She made some gorgeous totes that she will be taking to the sale. I'll be going over with her on Friday to help her get set up and do a little early buying.
What did I work on yesterday, you ask? Well, my pile of shopping carts is getting out of control so I made a couple liners.
Here is the one I made yesterday. I think it turned out so pretty, but then, I say that about all my liners. Modest, aren't I? But seriously, I do spend a lot of time picking out fabrics for each cart. I want them to be so cute that people will just be amazed at how adorable they are and have to have one for themselves. My plan seems to be working as they seem to sell as fast as I can make them.
The fabric I used on this one is some that I bought recently at JoAnn's. You may remember I showed the pile here.
This one I finished up this morning. The picture doesn't do it justice. I think the lighting is off. But if you click on it, you can get a better idea on the fabric I used. White with pink roses on the outside, pink with white polka dots on the inside. Don't you just love polka dots? I do.
This weekend my MIL will be coming for a visit so I need to clean up the guest room. Fortunately since we had visitors not too long ago it isn't too bad. It will be nice to see her again and have her here to help celebrate my youngest's 13th birthday which is on Friday.
I have a surprise that I have been keeping secret for awhile now that I want to share with you. Something came in the mail yesterday that has me "tickled pink." I promise to let you know about it soon.
