handwork

Making table mats is something I really like to do.
I'd call them table runners....
but they're always a BIT short.

I have a drawer with my little collection.
Oh...
And sometimes I'll give one or two away.
;)


This little table mat has been traveling around with me.

I'm finally DONE!
(well almost)
;/

There was the piecing..
There was the embroidery...
then.... the hand quilting.

It saw me through meetings...
doctor appts....
and most recently...
a CAMPING TRIP!!!


The binding is on!!!
And tomorrow...
I'll be stitching that down on the back!
With FRIENDS.
That makes the sewing so SWEET!

  1. Well, I just love these!!! Can they be used like placemats too? Do you mind sharing the measurements or does it matter what size they are. I just love these.

  2. This is really cute! It makes me think of a placemat. It would certainly make a cheery addition to a lunch box, almost like a tiny little picnic blanket :)

  6. It is gorgeous! I love the colours. And the embroidery is fabulous. I am hoping to try my hand at some embroidery later in the year once I figure out how to get the supplies past my husband (he thinks I already have to much craft 'stuff')

  17. It looks great! I love that shade of red with white. So cheery - it reminds me of eating summer fruit with a tall glass of cold traditional lemonade. :)
