not so scrappy

My pile of scraps? Here's what created it ... more placemats! Inspired by my previous placemat success story, I got the bug to make some holiday-themed placemats earlier this week. They'll be double-sided (see the "top" above; "bottom" below ... or vice-versa, depending on my mood!) and this time I'm using a wool batting instead of the double-sided fusible interfacing I used last time. I can't decide which side I like better ... the main fabric on each side is Anna Griffin, from her "Isabelle Christmas" line. Love, love, love!

Have you started Christmas-themed crafting projects yet? We have a strict no-Christmas-decorations-prior-to-Thanksgiving rule in our household, and I feel like I'm cheating a little bit with projects like these. But if I don't start now, Christmas will come and go and my project will only be half-done!

Don't forget to check out the other WIPs at TamisAmis!


  1. I hardly think it counts as cheating to make decorations, just as long as you don't use them before December! I make holiday stuff whatever time of year it strikes me and then I'll just hang onto the stuff until the holiday arrives.

  2. Love your blog! Congratulations on Country Living article. I look forward to visiting again.
