Placemats

It just occurred to me that I never showed you the finished placemats I made for my daughter. (They only took me all of last week.) Who knew that 8 placemats would be such a project? I must admit though that lately I'm not moving too fast on quilting and projects. It's finally nice where I live and I did have to get to my planting too. If I didn't get those tomato plants in as soon as possible, I might not get any red tomatoes by the time the cold weather comes back. Last year I think I was stuck with 10 lbs of green ones and we're not great ones for "fried green tomatoes"!

Anyway, here are the placemats. I'm not sure if she really liked them or not. She said she did, but she's nice that way anyway!

What fun!!! All different! I love picking a different coffee cup each day, and these placemats would be similar, everyone can pick their fav for the day. Great!

I'd be very happy to have thos at my house. In fact, they're so nice, I likely wouldn't even want to use them as placemats in case of nasty spills!

I think it is spam, Carol. Just delete it.

Your placemats turned out GREAT! I can't wait to hear how much Ms. T. loved them.

Hope your holiday was nice & not too much work for you.
