Really cute table mat!

Look at the really cute table mat I made this last weekend at Sossy's house! I got the idea from Tazzie, who used Bonnie's braid instructions. I took those and tweaked them and got this cute table runner! I have 2 more to make for xmas gifts. I really like how it turned out!

And look what I got in the mail! 3 of my favorite patterns from Marcie! Now to find time to make them! Oh I need more hours in the day!

Really cute table mat indeed! It's the perfect size. Great way to use up a few scraps too.

I've got a couple of those patterns as well!!! I'm thinking that Cotillion is begging to be done up in hand dyeds!

Love your table mat . . . is that a braid I feel coming on? *s* I've had my eye on the Wintergreen pattern, too.
