placemats

I was doing some field research about fabrics at a new store near me. Found lots of information, inspiration, and a new project.  It was tricky to pick out colors and patterns and then figure out how much I needed of each, but it all magically worked out.

What do placemats have to do with art?  Not much, but as an artist all my hobbies feed my creativity.  With this project, I was inspired by new colors, layouts and having something I could use every day.
Now we have some fun placemats.  New goal: make some with my own fabrics designs.

Working with my hands is so rewarding, learning a new process keeps my brain young, figuring measurements and stitching, so the right parts show, really keeps you sharp.  I am no sewing expert but loved figuring things out for this project.
