As Christmas is officially over I can now show you the table mats. I finally managed to finish them the day before I went off to visit my daughter. The colours were chosen by Jay and her husband. The mats were made using merino wools and I covered them all with 1940's black hat veils. The first one was easy but trying to get the others to match in size and pattern was rather a challenge. I was so pleased on Christmas day to hear that they loved them and were very suprised that the mats were so professionally made.
I made a number of bowls for the rest of the family and in my rush to get them sent I forgot to photograph them, never mind I'm sure I'll make some more.
My next project is to experiment with different textures and as I have large pieces of antique lace I think I'll start with those and see what happens.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to the New Year.
