The other day I went for coffee with neighbor-friend-artist extraordinaire, Laurie, and as we were leaving her place, she casually presented me with these embroidered fabric disks. In mere seconds she transformed them from circular napkins? to this other thing. When pressed to guess what purpose the result provided, I was stumped. I guess I’m not playing hostess enough to recognize the utility this folded form serves as a dinner roll holder. (Of course!) Nevertheless, I’m enchanted by the simple ingenuity behind giving fabric a third dimension and it marked the second time in two days that I was bowled over by Norwegian-inspired handiwork—proper Yuletide serendipity at play, no doubt.
