Happy Friday. Are you ready for the weekend? I'm so ready. I have so many sewing plans. I hope I get to finish all of the things I have on my list (or maybe at least half). However, right now I wanted to show you the fruits of last week's sewing session. The projects are very utilitarian... but still super fun to make. I needed a table mat to protect my dining table. I usually don't like tablecloths for everyday use on that table. But for some reason that table is like the heart of the house and most activities end up centered around that table and it needs something to protect the surface. So I made a couple of table runners to be used as table mats. They actually work out perfectly as a place setting for two, too. They are very basic. But there is something about simple patchwork that I love so much. And now table clean up is a breeze! Win, win :)

I hope you have a great weekend and happy sewing

  3. Utilitarian things are so underrated. I plan to make table runners and placemats in future, too. I particularly like the one you made that is just made up of big squares.
