I DID IT!

See what happens when you pull your finger out!
I worked hard all day sewing bindings on, then hand stitching the back side... and here they are:



ABOVE: all 9 placemats finished.  It took me over a year to get these done.  I'm so happy I've got one FINISH done for this year!

It wasn't that easy either:

ABOVE:  I had wee Coco cramping my style while I was doing the hand sewing! She's such a love.
Now... I'm going to get another UFO out of a box and finish it!
ONWARD...

They are beautiful! I think I would have to cover them with plastic [hahaha] if I used them for a dinner party!

Happy Summer and looking forward to seeing the next completed UFO!

These are so very pretty. It feels great to finish doesn't it?

I thought only cats liked to "help" with sewing projects. Nice to see dogs are just as "helpful".

Placemats? Coco says they are wee doggie beds!
