holidaying on the South Coast. It wasn't just the rough texture of it that caught my eye, but the square shape. Instantly loved it but, at $30 each, came home with just one to use as a French-style doily.
Well, that didn't last long as I'd beat my cutlery on the table if my place wasn't set with my favourite placemat. Of course, I exaggerate my toddler-like behaviour. A bit.
I also have a table runner I made - if you can call buying it off the roll and just hemming the ends 'made' - a few years back. Love the vintage-style fabric but soon realised table runners don't really do it for me.
So this morning, using my French placemat as a shape template, I cut the table runner up.
By the end of the day, I'll either have six new placemats, slighty undersized napkins or more padding for the don't-know-what-to-do-with-it drawer.
Not sure these are the sort of budding possibilities to celebrate the first day of spring. But they'll do.
shooting the currawongs with my trigger hose (more reach than a nerf gun), but possibly not quite as much fun.
