a little bias

bfast for k
breakfast

moving the plastic off the table (in this case much worn out placemats)

set for lunch
lunch

and replacing it with something homemade. heavy linen and trim choices by the girls. very simple project. which i needed right now.

i finally got around to making my own bias tape for these. i have been wanting to do this for so long. warning - i found it quite addictive. watch out for more... (this tool made it a cinch!)
