I had some ribbon and thought I'd give it a try...while watching ELF...which we all memorized!
I made three rosettes out of 1" muted silver satin ribbon and sewed them about 15" inches in from the edge of a piece of 2" satin muted gold ribbon to allow for a bow tie. Measure your waist and about 12" more for a bow. I would demonstarte that but it is Thanksgiving...toooo much waist!!
My daughter wanted it simple, but I could see this in many different shaped flowers and colors.
My next one will be grosgrain ribbon and black jersey knit flowers....I just rummage through the ribbon and fabric that I have.
It will have to wait for later...I am still cleaning up after this weekend of everyone home....and my dishwasher broke....on Thanksgiving....and all the leftovers in plastic containers from yesterday filling my sink....ugh.
Who is happy with their dishwasher? mine is a Maytag and it has been terrible! I love appliances...not fair! Here is another decision I do not want to make. I want stainless, next time I replace....but my fridge is fairly new and my stove is ok except it is an electric smooth top and I wish I could have gas. (Does anyone have propane? )So, do I get a white dishwasher again or go with one stainless appliance??
Too much to think about.....I watched the Christmas Dog last night and loved it and it was so peaceful....OH- because the dishwasher was not running!
