sweet (water) santa placemats...

After I fell in love with a wonderful Santa print cotton at Joann's last week, I decided that a little extra sewing right before Christmas would be a good idea. Who knew that a little extra sewing right before Christmas would be a good idea! So I borrowed my girlfriend's copy of Sweetwater's book, The Simple Home,  and got to work.

Since I'm such a Santa girl, I'm totally thrilled with the outcome.

I think even Santa would be pleased to see milk and cookies served on these.

Very cute! If you've got the sewing bug so badly I could use a hand or two here! Come on...you know you want to spend Christmas in northern Indiana, right?! ; )

These are so incredibly darling. Good job. Love the leg cake. I would buy a real leg lamp but it is $150.00 maybe next year. Nice to catch up with you Kim.

Totally cute! And a little sewing is always good, no matter when you do it! I just saw that book at Connecting Threads for 55% off. Maybe I need to "gift" it to myself?
