happy housewarming: the wine and dine

claps all around for our operative out in colorado! thanks to the hard work and dedication of the denver omelette, our southern belle can throw a shin-dig for ms. o'hara herself. her cocktail party needs taken care of, time to move from the parlor to the table. the task of dressing the dining room was left to this chickadee. a two pronged attack was undertaken with much attention paid to variety (that essential spice).

the first course...the dinner napkin:

once again, a million thank yous go out to the people at purl soho. their pattern, molly's handmade napkins, was just right for our porridge and purposes. it also featured an excellent tutorial on making and attaching bias tape. well worth reading if you find yourself up nights wondering how in the world the whole thing works.

16" x 16" in size, these squared off sweeties will look prim and proper as part of a place setting. and they will provide a lot of love in the lap as they shield southern seersucker from spills and carolina cotton from crumbs.

Why, Chickadee, I do declare -- these placemats are so beautiful they are positively giving me the vapors.
