|From a favorite vintage coffee advertisement. I love the variety of cups hanging by ribbons from the Christmas tree! The snowflake tablecloth is so pretty too.|
Thus, on Rudy Day I did not do one single, solitary Christmasy thing.
One thing I have been working on sporadically this week is cutting out pieces for pieced Christmas placemats like this one:
They match the runner I made a couple of years ago.
Well, they sort of match. I guess "coordinate" might be a better word. The fabrics will vary for each of them -- I am hoping to make ten mats -- because I am just using up scraps. I'm finding, though, that rather than using up all of my stash of scraps I am creating a good number of smaller scraps of Christmas fabrics.
Any ideas for using very small scraps of Christmas fabric will be welcome. I'm thinking of using some for card making and gift tags.
