No comment

That's right, I cannot leave comments on anyone's blog right now!  This is bad timing on Blogger's part since the Sew Mama Sew giveaway day is going on and there are always lots of blogfriends to visit and leave comments to.  I'm bummed!  So bummed that I skipped Tuesday's Orts.  Plus I've been a bit busy trying to finish my May UFO.  I trimmed all the blocks down to 8" , and tonight will play layout and switcheroo to get ready to sew.  I am not concerned about the quilt's final size as I am that all the blocks are uniform and easier to put together. 

And because a photo is always necessary, here's a little decor idea from Good Housekeeping magazine that I recently tried out:

Regular wine glass, LED tealight...

...and a shade cut from scrapbooking paper.  Cute, huh?  There's a PDF template to print out and you can get two shades from one 12 x 12 sheet of scrapbooking paper if you're careful.  Lighter colored paper would yield more light, but I used what I had on hand as a test.  Here's a link to the online mag and template.  It's Wednesday and a 3 day weekend is coming up.  I'm really ready for the break!

Bad blogger. I'm not exactly pleased with Google myself these days but that's another story. I love this little decorative idea. How neat. Great share. Just dagnabit on the whole comment thing, ha? Sorry friend. :( I wonder if I'll be able to leave this comment.

Thanks for the tut. I love the idea of small lamps on the dinner table instead of always using candles!
