Okay, I know I have a lot to learn but I am very pleased with how my first attempts at the French Braid turned out. I need to trim the sides and find a nice border. I will keep the small one and give the other to Brownie's sister, Cindy, for her kitchen table.
Cindy's kitchen is beige/light green/tans so I think it will look very nice. I hope she likes it. I really had a fun time cutting the strips out of different patterns and colors I had around my stash and trying to figure out how to arrange them.
If you haven't tried the French Braid, you need to! It really is great fun. Thanks for looking.
