Do all first-time holiday hostesses go beserk, or just me?
These are the place markers for my Thanksgiving table, pattern and tutorial here. I love little projects that use little bits of things I have lying around: ribbon, fabric, craft leaves. It was fun to dive into my scrap box, pulling out pieces of this or than and remembering every project I've ever sewn. The embroidered scrap is a piece of the bag my new Crate & Barrel table runner came in. I adore, adore the runner, and the fact that it came in its own embroidered bag was pretty sweet. And the fact that I was able to use part of the bag? Well, that was even better.
