Laminated Cotton Tablecloths and Mats are back!!!

I am totally excited to have our laminated cotton tablecloths and splat mats back. We have 12 prints to choose from and more coming every couple of weeks. In true Modern June fashion the tablecloths are trimmed out in contrasting cotton bias for a polished and professional look.
Laminated cotton is THE hot new fabric--it’s a friendly fabric that makes fabulous tablecloths and splat mats. Because it’s BPA-free, PVC-free and food safe, it's CPSIA compliant and great for family use. This thinner, and more supple oilcloth is a high-quality quilting-weight cotton print, coated with a thin layer of polyurethane on the fabric’s right side.

Splat mat  44” sq.                               $34.00
Square Tablecloth 56” sq.                    $42.00

Round Tablecloth 56” dia.                    $42.00
Round Tablecloth 90” dia (seamed)       $68.00

Oblong or Oval Tablecloth  56" x 90"     $62.00
Oblong or Oval Tablecloth  56" x 108"   $80.00
Oblong or Oval Tablecloth  56" x 120"   $98.00

PRODUCTION TIME: Please allow 1-2 weeks for us to make you special tablecloth or mat.

CARE: Laminated Cottons are machine washable but we suggest that you wipe it clean for a longer lasting product. Upon arrival you may want to iron the tablecloth from the back side, using a press cloth (important) and a dry, medium-temp iron. Store rolled.

My sweet little valentine's

After months and month of chaos, things are starting to even out a bit, and I've been cooking for my family a bit more. So, for Valentine's Day I decided to treat every one to a make-your-own pizza bar. Yeah, I know I didn't really do all the cooking, but it's a lot better than calling for take out.
Before I started, I whipped up a new pastry mat with some food-safe laminated cotton. Check out the how to at my Oilcloth Addict Blog.


 I also planned ahead and ordered some Whoopie Pies from Etsy Featured Seller Whipped Bakeshop. Aidan said that they were so good they should be illegal! The were totally de-lish!

Show and Tell Challenge!

My lovely friend Karen owns a lovely fabric shop called Venezie Fabric in Boston and sells her fabric on Etsy as well. A few weeks ago I bought some of the pretty Country Lane fabric from Bari J and we quickly used it to make some very pretty aprons. Well guess what Karen is having a Show and Tell Challenge to win a nice gift certificate! You know mamma always needs more fabric so head on over to her blog and vote for my aprons! VOTE #11!!!

Birthday fun!

Well, I did it again. I turned 39 for the 4th year running. I know what your thinking, but it's true. Ask my kids they'll tell you. I had a great birthday this year. It started out on Friday night when I got home and found a new lamp in my bedroom--that man of mine really pays attention! Then on Saturday I got these two new books from the kids. (Somehow they ended up on the hubbies Amazon wish list, weird huh?)
For lunch I choose one of the few places that makes the whole family happy, Noodles & Company. I roll with a pretty picky gang. so I love this place. I get good food, and they get plain food. Look at these handy chopstick holders that kept us all very happy while we waited for out food.

"I did it!" How darn cute is this child of mine?
This one looks a little skeptical about the chop sticks actually working... that's my boy, always thinking!
Just in case you didn't understand plain food, its nothing but noodles and salt. The chopsticks did jazz it up, don't you think?
One of the other great reasons I chose Noodle & Co. was that it was in close proximity to Quilting Adventures. I sent Don and the kids to the comic shop so I could buy a little birthday fabric. I am sneaky, aren't I? I just had to go back for another round of fat quarters for more Betty aprons. I love these Robert Kaufman prints.
 I didn't see these last week, but what the heck, right? Love me some fruity goodness.

After I met back up with the fam, we headed off to Movieland to see Gnomeo and Juliet in 3D. It was the perfect Saturday afternoon movie. So funny and so darn cute! I have to say it's as good as Shrek and The Incredibles, and I could see them 100 times. Oh wait, I have seen them 100 times. Silly me. 
We spent the rest of the night cuddled up watching a Cupcake Wars marathon--it was almost as good as eating real cupcakes.

It takes a team of incredibly talented people to write a sewing book, but I am not so sure that this is the help I need with my patterns for the book.

I love you day flowers!, originally uploaded by ModernJune.

My very sweet husband brought home flowers for me last night, just some sweet little flowers for a sweet little memory. He first told me he loved me 18 years and 1 day ago! Isn't he adorable for remembering that?

Stand back girls he's all mine!
