I've done 6 place mats, each backed with a 10 inch square
And a larger mat using four of the larger squares and backed with a fat quarter I would never have used otherwise. Then at Hunneys insistence I bound everything in red. I was auditioning gold also, but Hunney wanted red. It looks right to me. Oh! the quilting? Is a very simple stitch in the vicinity of the ditch! LOL
They were so quick and easy to make, all seven done by bedtime, that I may just make another set for mum.
For those interested in cross stitch, Santa is still skinny, but at least he has his beard, head and hat!
That black blob, just at the tip of his beard is the button on his coat, I'd say he is about half way done now.
I have to scoot out to the post office again today, call in somewhere and pay the balance off Hunneys big prezzie and buy a new kettle, ours has given up! So not sure how much sewing time I'll get. I want to make a cover for my new work diary, why are they always so boring? Plain burgundy this year, not for long though! LOL DS Joe wants me to cover a file for him too, I have some of his dragon fabric left. I may do those today.
1) A dry day
2) A morning off work.
3) The first cuppa of the day.
