A Wee Bit of Sewing Time

Dang... It's State Board of Equalization Sales Tax Reporting Time so I'm buried in receipts and paperwork... but did find time to finish up a gift for a friend celebrating 50 years of marraige... to the same man!!!!! :-) My friend Carol's hubby is a great fellow, full of fun and life. They are a great match. Our Wanabe Quilters friendship group made a beautiful table runner for them and I had wanted to have embroidered napkins done. The cost for that was outrageous so I printed their names (Carol and Ed) on fabric and blanket stitched a small label onto each napkin corner. This approach was over $98 dollars more practical than the commercial solution. In these times, we gotta be creative with our money, right?
