The next project I'll be attempting will be placemats. This weekend several of us took a trip to Kansas City and I had already decided to check out a couple of my favorite stores to look for table linens.
Geez......I couldn't believe the prices so decided to try making them. One set that I loved would have been around $250 for 8 placemats & napkins. Yesterday, I made a quick trip to F.M. store (my favorite fabric store) and spent $7.99 per yard for the greatest fabric. When I finish one, I'm going to post exactly how much fabric it took for each one and how much time it took. We are constantly amused at people insinuating our prices are high. They need to get out and compare (& please not with Walmart). I've just learned to make things that I like so then if it doesn't sell, I can use them or give them as a gift. We also have no desire to compete with China or Bangladesh.
We had a wonderful trip to K.C. We went to see our friend, JoAnn, off to West Virginia where she and her husband are moving. We'll miss her but she promises to come back frequently. This is JoAnn with her daughter, Alex......
With JoAnn as our tour guide we visited all of her favorites. We all loved the City Market.
It was such a treat to get away for a weekend.....especially with this fun group......
Guess it's back to reality (taxes)! I've vowed to have them done by Thursday so guess I'd better get busy.
Hope you're having a wonderful Wednesday (it's beautiful in Mo.)!
