Happy Easter to everyone. By now you are likely relaxing and fed well on turkey, ham, lamb or whatever ever else you enjoy for your Easter lunch/dinner.
A little while ago, I got this new dining table that extends to a whopping 12 feet. Which makes it hard to find a cloth or runner that actually fits it. While pondering in the fabric shop last week, I came across this material intended for tea towels. Sold by the meter, it has two edges already hemmed, which makes it ideal to use as a table runner. I bought a 4 meter piece and frayed the edges because I am really lazy about sewing.
I think it looks a lot like the vintage grain sack fabric that is so popular at the moment. It also comes in blue and green. I got 4 meters for $17.00 as it was 40% off.
I had a small crowd for dinner today. Each person got a chocolate dipped marshmallow (see my previous post) and a clay tag with an Easter chick on it. If you want to see how to make these tags the Beach Cottage blog has a tutorial. You can see it HERE but you have to pay for it, or HERE on McCarthy Designs Blog. Or you can buy them from Ness Lockyer who makes the best ones I have seen. Check out Ness's Etsy shop Marley and Lockyer.
