Babycakes, those napkins are gorgeous! All those items are great! You'll have to check back in and tell us how that seed strip works!

Mmm..Tacoma...I can smell it now. Wink  But seriously, it's not so bad anymore.  Nothing compared to what it was like when I was a kid.  My mom had a nice old house in Tacoma..I liked that house.
grenouille - ahhh the aroma! I actually know another craftster from T-Town. She's totally awesome, and so is her fam.

Yep, that's us. Actually can't smell it from my house, so that's nice. Tacoma's not a total armpit, but I would rather be in Seattle or Oly.
Well hey, dharma, sounds like some SouthSound craftiness might not be too farfetched! Maybe we should run with this! I'd love to have some crafty compatriots. And reading about all the fun OGD and imafundork get to have makes me jealous!  Cheesy

Tacoma smells because it has a paper mill. There is also a paper mill in Camas (across the water from Portland, OR). Both of my grandparents used to work at it, and when my mom and aunts would complain about the stink they would get told "that's the smell of money!"

According to the underground tour I took of Seattle, it orginally was because the toilets they had in Seattle were putting everything out into the Puget Sound and it all ended up washing up in Tacoma.  But I think the real story is just an industrial thing.  Paper mills, I believe.  Ah, here we are: good old Wikipedia!

Dharma beat me to it..but I always loved the underground story so I'm leavin this up. Wink

That's the smell of money...people say that around here, but they're talking about hog manure.   Grin

I think I'll take the paper mill over the hog manure! Yeah, Flower, it's affectionately known as "The Aroma of Tacoma." Our claim to fame. That and the Tacoma Dome. Exciting stuff.
Itchy -- is the underground tour worth taking? I've never been. I think my dad has; he grew up there. In Seattle, I mean. Not underground.

I think it's worth it as long as you aren't claustrophobic.  There is a weird smell and it's very closed in but if that doesn't bother you, it is pretty cool. I haven't been in years, though..so it may have changed somewhat.  I'd love to take my husband and kids sometime when we're down visiting family.

I, oddly enough, enjoy the faint smell of cow manure.  My grandpa had a dairy farm in Auburn when I was a kid so the smell is quite nostalgic for me.  Now in your face cow manure smell...no thanks. Cheesy

I'm glad you liked everything BabyCakes, and that everything got there in one piece Smiley  I was a little worried about the napkin rings getting bunched up in everything else hehe.

I grew up in Washington state too -- but on the other side of the mountains in a tiny little town called Burbank which is just west of Walla Walla.  In Wallula, there's another paper plant.  To the very west was a dairy.  Plus, there's the Hanford Nuclear plant and Iowa Beef.  To say my town smelled horrifying on a hot summer day is putting it mildly! Smiley


As for the fishcloths, I used this pattern http://dishclothcorner.blogspot.com/2008/06/fish-washclothdishcloth.html

Very easy!
