I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Rustic Burlap Table Runner

No sewing involved!!  Now that I've got your attention, check out how easy it is to make this table runner. This one was made for Christmas but you could choose any colour scheme you like.

Pick up some burlap at your local garden center, the one used to cover shrubs in cold weather. No need to buy it at the fabric store...way more expensive!

First iron the fabric.
Next, pull out one string where you want to cut the burlap.
This helps keep it from unraveling.

Now you can cut through where the string had been.
And remove more strings from the ends if you want a fringe.

Weave some coloured ribbon through at measured intervals and...

you've got your burlap runner. I tied little brass bells on each corner of mine.

Just change up the ribbon colour for different holidays or events. Super easy!!
