2009: Finish #5.2

I made Grandma 6 of these Xmas placemats in December 2007.

I then for whatever reason decided that she needed another 4 and so kept the fabric aside to do so.

I kept on meaning to make them last year and they hung over my head like a bad smell until finally I decided enough was enough and I would get them done this year or else!

So one Friday night in May I thought I’d just get them over and done with so I pulled all the fabric out of the box that I kept them in and got to cutting and sewing.

It was at this point that I realised I didn’t have enough of the cream fabric to make a further 4 so it just became 2.

And really, there won’t ever be more than 8 coming over for Xmas dinner anyways so we don’t really need the extra 2.  If for whatever reason in the future we do, well then I guess I’ll make another matching set of 4 or something like that and we can mix and match 🙂

I finally finished sewing the binding on these 2 very early Monday 29th June whilst I was waiting for Grandma to be taken in for her Carpal tunnel surgery.
