I’ve been sewing again, mostly for myself. And I’m loving it. I recently finished a set of reversible placemats for our dining room. I used this bird Ikea fabric for one side, and a simple black and white floral texture for the other. I wanted to get all six of them out of just two yards of the main fabrics, so I added a 5 inch panel to each side. I used the same Amy Butler pattern I used for these placemats. This time they came together really quickly and they’re so easy to just toss in the wash when they get soiled. Plus they look great on our teak table.

I'm an artist and writer who loves to explore the farmer's market, play in the kitchen, plant vegetables in the garden, wander the aisles of the grocery store, and, of course, eat. My "professional" food training was limited to what I learned while a short order and prep cook at a family restaurant the summer after I graduated from high school. I learned how to crack an egg with one hand, how to make 12 gallons of hollandaise sauce, and how to pull chicken. It wasn't until years later that I realized I love working with food. Now days I spend my spare time planning meals, reading cookbooks and trying out new recipes. View all posts by jenn
