Digitally Sweet Challenge # 67 - Photo Inspiration
Now, if you read the title of my blog today you might be wondering why this card took a year to make. It wasn't this card that took a year. It was a gift for my DIL.
A little background info.... the silverware pattern my DIL chose when she and my son married 10 years ago has been discontinued. And when entertaining, she often has to use both her good and her everyday silverware because she doesn't have enough place settings. Wonderful MIL that I am, I routinely watch ebay for opportunities to purchase more place settings for her. Before last Christmas I found and bought 4 more place settings in her pattern. Then I spotted a flyer at Joann's with directions for silverware holders. I picked up the flyer, purchased the special material to keep silver in, and pretty fabric for the outside. But I didn't get a chance to make it before last Christmas. I told myself that I was going to get this project finished so I could give her the silver this Christmas.
I actually finished it today! and am pleased with the results!

I sure do hope she likes it!
