Because I was on a high from the jam-making I decided to be super domestic and make a tablecloth for my kitchen table. It’s one of those square tables that I’m seeing more and more, but nobody makes tablecloths that size (60″ sq).
Long story short–although the oilcloth is dreamy to work with, it’s not behaving itself at all. The tablecloth has been a complete bitch to make. I’m 3/4 of the way done and it is going to look awful. I’m not quite sure how to salvage it. That fabric was expensive too! And we still need a tablecloth. Placemats are just not cutting it.
I know what I need. Cookie dough! That will solve everything. Why didn’t I think of that sooner?
