Cloth Napkins or Paper Towels for Thanksgiving???

So my question was.......

Do we use cloth napkins or pretty paper towels for Thanksgiving?????


I know my mother and grandmother would gasp at the thought of paper towels, but they are easy and they make them oh so cute these days. I let this thought go and went about my day.

There I was strolling the fabric store for some more thread (Not a big purchase, but still a very necessary one) when I saw this fabulous turkey fabric screaming at me "Liz buy me"...."wouldn't I make great napkins?".... Of course I am crazy and yes fabric talks to me, but besides that I knew that the switch to cloth napkins would be a fun one. I already know how to sew and this turkey fabric was screaming at me. Plus no trees would be hurt in the process. How could I turn this cute fabric down? I couldn't! I bought the fabric and made some cloth napkins. I have two sets of 6 for sale on etsy also. Didn't they turn out great?? Pictures not so much, but the sun is setting and I couldn't get it any better today so maybe tomorrow I will try again.

Plus I feel way better not hurting mother nature anymore than I have to! What are you planning on using????

Halloween Etsy Sale $5

I know I have been MIA (missing in action) for awhile, but family issues always pull me away from crafting and the internet. We had a death in the family and a sister with some depression issues. We had no power for over a week because of hurricane Ike. Yes I live in Ohio, but the 80 mile per hour winds took out all the power lines and most of the trees in the neighborhood. We are not accustomed to that here. Plus family has been in town and..... well, life just took over for awhile! I am back and ready to blog:) ready to craft:) and ready to sell sell sell:)
