They will be finished!!!

(I hope by next week?)

I have started a new set of 6 place-mats on which I want to practice the patterns from the new books.  I photocopied 6 patterns before I put the books into the library and merrily rushed in BUT I didn't read the instructions correctly and then was left wondering why it didn't look right.  Still useable, but not right.

So now I am drawing grids onto the fabric, a slow process but this should give a better result.

I am using a Bohin chalk pencil which should brush off,  if not I know it will wash off.  I bought this lovely Japanese fabric at a "de-stash day" at $5 per metre.  What a steal?


(And I forgot to upload the plate cosie pattern yesterday, it is now there.)
