I fell in love….. with some wild fabric I found at Cozy Creative Center and just had to buy some. I really did not need to start another project, but I could not resist it. I really, really love this fabric. At Cozy they had stretched a piece around a painter’s canvas and it looked stunning on the wall. What a great, quick and easy decorating idea, except that I really did not have any free wall space. So I made placemats instead.
And then I’ll have 8 reversible placemats, all slightly different.
A Bernina binding foot would have really helped, but I was so impatient at starting them that I did not think it through, so all the binding will have to be sewn by hand to the back. Another example of “what was I thinking!”.
Do you have impulsive ideas like that? I do hope I am not alone when I think I can do something quickly in between some other projects and then realize it will take much longer than I had anticipated. Oh well, at least I don’t know what boredom is.
