Where did it go?

 There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone.

After a very unproductive weekend I woke up this morning feeling a loss of time.  Where did my entire weekend go?  How does one have so much time and accomplish almost nothing?  The Twilight Zone is my only answer.  It couldn't be laziness or couch potato syndrome.   Between fading in and out of "The Zone"  a few cloth napkins were made.  For years I used cloth napkins.  With 3 kids of my own and babysitting up to 5 more it was the only way to go.  When divorced and living alone it just didn't make as much sense to use them.  I've noticed in the last few months that we use 1 to 2 rolls of paper towels a week.  That's way too much waste.  Relax I'm not tree hugger or one of those wackos that chains themselves to a bulldozer.  Some call me frugal, practical, minimalist and crazy!  The way I see it I'm killing two birds with one stone.   Using up some old stash and saving a few dollars a month.  
Using my 12.5 square up ruler I cut 10 of each ugly cheap fabric.  The plan was to use a rolled hem foot to finish the edges.  Well guess what?  I don't have a rolled hem foot.  Never fear, creativity is here!  Instead I used  my blind stitch/SITD foot.
Carefully folded in the corners using a mini iron.
Pinned them in place
Needle position as far left as I could go. Roll as I go, stitching a very small hem.

As long as I don't fall back into the Twilight Zone the last few should be finished today.

  2. DA DA DA DA....DA DA DA DA....da da da da....That's supposed to be the Twilight Zone theme.... You know, the older I get, the faster time goes. It's called Relativity. A day to a 68 year old is, relatively speaking, goes quicker than a day goes for a 10 year old. So buckle up...you ain't seen nothin yet Buttercup! Time will go faster and faster as you get older. Just one of the joys of living (or something like that). And btw, lost socks get thrown up out of the twirling basket inside the washer and go between the drum and the inner wall of the washer. Don't even ask me how I know that....XO

  3. I so agree time flies as you get older, how did I find time to work I ask myself! Napkins look good and using the blind hemmer worked well

  4. Unfortunately, I'm also rather familiar with the Twilight Zone. Hope you've been able to avoid it this weekend.
