Happy St. Valentine's Day ~ In September

I could have waited to post this until February,
but that's just not how things work around here.
I'm a firm believer in cloth napkins, real plates,
sitting at the table to eat.
I know "gasp" right?
Mr. LB laughs at me for using 1/2 paper towel
which is actually pretty seldom.
These Valentine napkins have been cut out 
since before last Valentine's Day.
They are finally stitched up.
At least they are ready for next year:)
This time of year,
I tend to do the nesting thing.
Clean house, get some clutter out, organize a little,
and finish up 'little projects.'
It's amazing how after doing this,
the clutter reappears, more projects pup up, and 
there's more to be done.
Maybe there are little elves that come at night
and rather than doing work,
they create work.

 Until next time,
Nimble Fingers and Even Stitches


  1. yes I also like to sit at the table at meal times.
    De cluttering is good to do but it seems to build up twice as fast again and then more de cluttering is needed, must admit I think I will get rid of things but once the pile is done I go through it again and find myself returning half of it back to where it came from before I started tidying!

  2. Love cloth napkins and these are the "cats meow".
    Lovely !!

  3. Good Morning, I am catching up with friends this morning. I have had cataract surgery on my left eye and they are scheduling the right eye. I love your napkins and enjoyed reading your previous post. Have a wonderful day. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

  4. I completely agree with you about eating at the table with real plates and cloth napkins! Hubby and I ordered a pizza for dinner tonight and sat at the table and used real plates and cloth napkins. It just makes it all the more "fancy" and civilized! I am your newest follower!

  5. We try to eat at the table all together, I like to use real plates and hubby likes to use paper...I don't like plastic cups, I prefer glass, hubby would use paper plates and paper towels. His purpose, however, is to make things easier for me, and that attitude I do appreciate. I like for everything to look pretty, but sometimes I get so caught up in the pretty, we have to have crackers and cheese for the meal....LOL....not good! So I am working on the meal part again. When we had 5 kids at home I was great with meals. We had smoothies for breakfast...that's MY idea of an easy meal!

  6. What a great project to finish! I also seem to work on those unfinished projects this time of year.

  7. I also seem to work on unfinished projects this time of year. I know how good it feels to get those projects finished and I love yours!
