Almost Sunday


As I write this, it is late Saturday night, almost Sunday. I just finished these three placemats. It's just a simple project made from scraps. But the interesting part is, I have not yet made the project from which these scraps derived. Huh??

You see, I made a prototype.. settled on a design.. then had some scraps from the prototype and made them into placemats. (Today I purchased the fabrics for the final project; some are slightly different from these, because some of my originals were no longer available.) I decided to finish these placemats tonight and give them to my friend, Beth, at church tomorrow. By the time I post this on my blog, she will already know she has received placemats. I didn't want to ruin the surprise and post this photo too early.

I started on the final project, but cut my strips the wrong size. Dang! Thank goodness I only cut a few so I have not (yet) ruined a whole project. Better wait on that one 'til I have my whole brain engaged.

Here they are again -- for Mama Bear, Papa Bear, and Daughter Bear

And that's just the way the cookie crumbles, sometimes! Kind of like...what came first, the chicken or the egg...right?!

They are darling! LOVE the colors...and how they're all similar yet different. Well done, Carol!

I love the colors of your placemats and how they all use the same fabrics in different ways - I'm sure your friend will enjoy them.
