Ideas for Thanksgiving

Nov 1, 2014

A few weeks ago while on pinterest I found a picture of a very simple table runner. It was just a strip of burlap loosely tied at the ends. Then I remembered the pillows a nephew’s friend made him.


And a Thanksgiving thought came to me—wouldn’t this be a great table runner for the kid’s table? Just trace some appropriate pictures and have the kids color them while the adults are fixing the feast or watching the game.
Or have the kids draw their own pictures. Now that I think about it this would make a great ‘getting ready for Christmas’ project for the kids to complete.

November’s product of the month is the homespun towels. These make great hostess gifts, with a little appliqué you have a stunning gift. Make one into an apron using it with a coordinating calico fabric or a make a tote.

My best friend’s birthday is this month so if you come into the shop with your best friend you will receive a 10% discount off your purchases. To use this discount on line the code is NOV51
