Playing Catchup with Holiday Placemats

Wow, it has been several months since I started this adventure and the holidays and life in general has kept me busy.  But I did take some pictures, so I am going to catch up!  Bear with me as I post a little history to get current.  I am going to start with these fun holiday placemats.

For the holidays, I dug out my Clover Yo-yo maker, and made a pile of peppermint yo yos.

I stitched and strung groups of them together.

Then I added them to some plain red placemats I made out of solid red kona.

A cute holiday placemat is born.  But wait, there is more.

I took my old pattern for gift cards and made them up for silverware holders.

They are completely lined so they have a contrasting cuff when you fold them over.  I used this apple green candy cane print.

Isn’t that a cute Holiday place setting?
