Not a quilt
I worked in the yard again yesterday and I'm pooped. It's been hot here and I was feeling lazy today so I took a nap with the ceiling fan twirling slowly above me, the curtains closed to the heat. I had been trimming up some shrubs in the backyard near the patio (and cleaned the patio while I was at it), and found one of my good forks buried in the dirt. I have no idea. Must have been one helluva party.
Anyway, I finished up these place mats inspired by the ones I saw here. I really liked the way they turned out. I used American Made cotton (light khaki) for the background and the yellow and red blocks. The rest is stash.
I also ordered some low volume fabric from Sunny Day Supply Fabric shop. I love getting packages in the mail wrapped up all cute like this...
I haven't crocheted anything in a while and I miss it. I have a couple of blankets that need finishing, but you know how that goes. Meh. I'd rather start something new. Any ideas?
