Blogger's Dinner Party

I've been following Needle and Spatula's blog ( )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  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!

  1. Well that's a fun idea! I'll have to check it out...

  2. That sounds fun! Might have to see.

  3. Thanks for telling us about this. I am making placemats for all of my grandchildren for their Christmas presents so maybe I can get some ideas from this site.
