Cathy's Countdown to Christmas

Cathy inspired me to get busy on Christmas last month. I have been working on Christmas presents for other people, (but I can't show them yet!) and some stuff for my house. Did you know it's only 86 days until Christmas????

I bought this vintage looking Michael Miller fabric a couple of years ago on EBay and never knew what to do with it. So I made cloth napkins for us to use during the Christmas season. I ended up with 22 napkins.

and then I used the rest of the fabric for 6 patchwork hotpads.
I'm making a table runner too, but I don't have the backing fabric yet so I'll show that when I'm finished.

Thanks for the inspiration Cathy!
