Yesterday I made a sample napkin holder. I had intended to make it in the style of these baskets on Debbie's blog, and I drew the pattern here:
After thinking about it and discussing it with my cousin, who I invited into the creative process, I changed how I wanted to do it. The calculations are shown here:
The sides are made from the long strip which is folded at the top. This strip encloses plastic canvas pieces. The bottom is a double layer square of fabric which is attached to the bottom of the sides. The bottom encloses a piece of craft foam. I cut the fabric pieces and did the sewing, while my cousin cut all the plastic pieces. Here is my first napkin holder for the kitchen:
Even though St Patrick's day was yesterday, we had a very St Paddie's day breakfast today. The crust of the quiche was nut meal and egg. The quiche filling was eggs, spinach leaves, and sea salt, blended. There was cheese sprinkled on top, but it got cooked into the quiche.
The biscuits were made from this recipe. They are made with mostly eggs and coconut flour, and they are very good. This was a mostly paleo meal, except for the little bit of cheese:
Today, I went out with DH to buy a step ladder, and we had burgers at Steak n Shake - no fries, no bread, no cheese, but all the other condiments! Then we went to JA's to get buttons and a zipper. We got a small pack of very sturdy buttons for the next time I need to replace buttons on his shorts. We got a 30" light-weight nylon zipper so I can make a cover for the wedge pillow I bought last weekend.
After that, cousin and I laid out in the sun to get our natural Vitamin D and to sweat out the toxins. The day is not yet over!
