I completed the first 6 patchwork placemats this weekend. Good thing because the bridal shower was Saturday afternoon.
They almost weren’t completed. Why, you ask? Because I sewed them wrong sides together at 5 am on Saturday after working late on Friday night. Bleery-eyed sewing does no one any good. The only reason these babies made it photographed, wrapped and delivered by 2 pm was thanks to the roomie. He took them out of my hands with the seam ripper and gave them back to me in ready-to-be-sewn-correcly stacks. I was in a bit of a fury when I realized that I’d sewn the completed patchy tops, the batting and the backing together incorrectly. I was also running on very little sleep and a lot of Diet Coke. Thankfully, his patience saved the day.
So pretty! And really the part that makes me the happiest is all of the fabric for these (and 4 more still waiting to be completed for chez moi) was out of the scrap box. Love it!
The bride was pretty happy too. Thankfully most of my friends are keen to my crazy sewing and hippie ways these days.
Hope your weekend was lovely, sweet friend.
