Moving Right Along...

I've completed four placemats and napkins so far. I'll sew the rest today. I've bound the ones that are finished, and even though there are three different styles and fabric combinations from the French General line being used, I'm binding all of them in the same fabric shown on this one. It's also the final border on the table quilt below it.

We bought new hard floors for our dining room and master bedroom today. It's going to be installed on Friday, so I'm going to share before and after photographs on Saturday. It's pretty exciting to have the crummy builder's carpeting finally ripped out of here. I can't wait to share the transformation with you.

Fezzik is working on his post for tomorrow, so I'd better go and see if he wants me to take photographs for him. Thanks for stopping by, dear friends. I hope you have a happy and creative day. If you're getting pounded with more snow today, please stay warm and safe, too!

I spent some time myself with the French General and a package should arrive soon. I am having fun with the mug mats.

Your placemats and napkins are just gorgeous. The fabric is perfect. Can't wait for the new designs to come out.

I don't think I'll ever want carpeting again. Not with the pet babies anyway. And I'll always have pet babies!

What lovely fabric! Congrats on getting new flooring - hard wood floors are so lovely and rustic. Can't wait for Fezzik Friday. And we did endure yet another snow storm - with 18 1/2 inches of fresh snow. WE are sitting in front of the fire...so nice. Theresa
