Thanksgiving is Coming....

I absolutely love Thanksgiving and wanted something new and fun for my dinner table. So, I thought the easiest way is to make some placemats. I found the little turkeys on Embroidery Library.  I purchased them for $1.49. So worth it.... and then I went to my favorite local fabric store, Beverly's. I found this great Robert Kaufman orange fushions fabric.  I will definitely be using green and red when I start my Christmas crafts/sewing...  The brown is Kona cotton.

I just love how they turned out. The orange is so bright and cheerful. These just make me smile. I LOVE THEM.. I made a set of 8....
