The Good [Kids'] Stuff: Setting the Table

In my recent efforts to get some chores going, I made some placemats to help guide Peter in his new table-setting responsibilities. I found this cute fabric at Joann's in the scrap bin and went with it. Amazingly enough, after I set the placemats and dishes on the table, Peter does a great job getting everything just so. And, in addition to helping Peter learn to set the table, this project helped me really get the hang of zigzag stitching (right before I had to give my mom's Bernina back :( I just finished packing up all my sewing stuff today.) On to knitting projects, I guess.

Becca, I just want to say how I appreciate you placing the table properly. I saw someone's blog recently (don't remember who it was, but it wasn't someone I knew personally) and they had these placemats, but the knife was turned sharp side out and it was on the outside of the spoon. It drove me crazy!!! Anyway, I'm just OCD about that kind of stuff. You're awesome.
