See what envy does !!!

And The Winner is


Tracy at Seaside Enchantment is the winner of a 100 thank-yous. Sorry Tracy seeing your present is sort of a spoiler but I thought the other ladies would want to see it. I got the wonderful China Wear dishtowel at the Christmas House and thanks to Debbie's wonderful gifts I got the idea to decorate a composition-book. Thank you Debbie, I hope you do not mind me copying you !! and Tracy if you want it a dark chocolate pecan/rasin bar ???? Remember dark chocolate is good for you :-)


I also want to show something I made with leftover oilcloth. I had these odd skinny pieces. So I trimmed the edges with pinking shears. I folded them in thirds and added ric-rack to hold down the front flap.


I cut the top piece a little skinnier so it would lay under the ric-rack. Since I did not want to pin the oil-cloth (and have little holes) I found taped worked well (as you can see below). I just sewed up each side. I found it was best to start at the bottom fold, (not like in the picture below, this is were I made my mistake and found out I needed to start at the bottom) it did not slip around. Also you have to gently pull the fab as you sew. But really it was easy and a nice way to use up leftovers.


I just wanted to thank you ladies for the kind words and feed back. It is funny I thought there would be one or two things you ladies all loved but each of you picked different things. So the message I got is to just keep on doing what I do. I have some great homemaking ideas I will be posting over the next few weeks, so stay tuned.

You ladies are the best xoxoxo
