I guess we're going "reunion" in the kitchen.
Now that we're "empty nesters", we decided it was time to take the nasty plastic cover off our kitchen table.
The wood needs protection. I've been stumbling over what design to use for pieced placemats. Any design would do. I finally decided that the stress I was allowing was not worth it for "placemats" and decided to use what reunion canvas I have left.
They are a standard size placemat, altering a bit to get one more placemat. To minimize on bulk, finish off the edges, then turn under once, press and sew 1/4 inch from the edge.
The weight of the canvas fabric gives just enough protection, but not too much bulk . . . PERFECT!
The table runner with this red canvas may be from the hometown line.
Simplicity won the day! I'm very happy AND IT'S DONE!
Sweetwater is coming out with their next line of fabric, yesterday's post is promising a sneak peek in their blog next week. I've been stuck on reunion for too long.
My husband has found "his answer" to all my troubles. He started saying this on a regular basis about a year ago. I didn't like it at first, but these 4 words have provided an amazing amount of therapy, and I didn't even have to pay for it!
