I've been following Needle and Spatula's blog (http://www.needleandspatula.com )for a couple of months, and I love Kate's monthly Blogger's Dinner Party. In August, because Kate and hubby are MOVING, her blogging buddy Lindsay http://www.lindsaysews.com/2011/07/bloggers-dinner-party-its-august.html is hosting the party.
In Kate's words:
"The Bloggers' Dinner Party is a monthly link-up for you to show off handmade placemats, table runners, napkins, trivets, aprons, potholders, dishtowels and any other handcrafted item related to making or serving a delicious dinner! (For inspiration, check out past entries here!) Items should either be hand-sewn or significantly modified (such as by screenprinting, freezer paper stenciling, embroidery, etc). Each month you can enter one item (or set of items); the item(s) entered must have been made within the past year. A randomly-selected entry will win that month's prize, and I will also highlight a few of my favorite items on my [Kate's] blog!"
And there are PRIZES!! This month one lucky random winner will receive a hexies (hexagon) quilt kit with 25 hexagon templates and 50 small charms.
I'm working on an apron using my fun Home Ec fabric (a work in progress – more on that later).
So, for any of my sewing buddies, if you'd like to check it out, come join the fun. And for my non-sewing buddies, just come and browse for the fun of it!
