One thing I'm really enjoying about the link-ups is it's not just recipes. Oh, I'm a foodie that looovees recipes (remember this post?), and there's several new ones here that are going on my 'to try' list! But I also like to hear stories of sharing the table together, and seeing projects made to enhance the table. Because, though the Table is not always specifically a dining room table (like here or here), often it IS. And I like to think of the actual dining room as an inviting space - you know, with a nice place setting and maybe even a centerpiece, or at least a table runner. I like cloth napkins (and I like that my hubby irons them!) and I like sturdy dishes and fun glasses. I like comfy chairs so you can sit around the table for hours if you like. (Are we the only ones that spend the whole evening there when we have friends over?)
Anyway, I hope you consider linking up, if you haven't yet. Those who have already gathered have been enjoying some good table talk, which was the point all along.
Meanwhile, just a glimpse into my dining room, where I finally followed through on a project I had in mind month's ago - hanging my fall trio all together. (Made during Lily's Quilts Dead Simple Quiltalong.) I know fall is nearly over and winter soon upon us, but now at least the rod is hung & I can switch out the quilts as my seasonal whim dictates.
Look how that creamy print makes the center & right-hand quilt 'pop',
while the one on the left looks so dull. I think I'll be
switching the order in which they are hung - thoughts?
