I can’t decide which place mat I like the most, but I still have one more top to make before I finish these up. Then I’ll make my decision on which of these is the ultimate in awesome. This latest addition reminds me of a picnic! You have the color of condiments for food at a BBQ, as well as dessert in the cool colors, and the playful flowers of summer.
I also used some of the small scraps to make a mug rug for my BFFL Joanna. She’s graduating from college in a couple weeks, and I’ll be sending her Star Wars pin, a Bird Bernie Sanders sticker, this mug rug, and maybe a funny card.
Tomorrow construction continues on whatever it is that’s being built behind my house. I’m predicting I’ll have a monster headache because of it, just like I did last week. The construction makes the entire house shake and rattle, put my cats (Jasper and Cacoa) in a panic, and I can’t get a thing done because of all this. They start at 7am (which is just cruel IMHO), but I’m hoping the heat will make them stop early. I can’t exactly leave for twelve hours; there’s nowhere for me go for that long.
I’ll cut more strips tonight. My table was shaking so badly last week I couldn’t cut anything. If I can get at least that done my mood won’t be so sour later.
