    I'm thinking of making mats for our church suppers. The ladies always put down towels and then we don't have enough towels for dishes and such. Wish there were more ladies interested in making them.

    wvdek, that is what I make. I was always looking for something to put under my hot casseroles etc. Very easy to make. The ladies will love you.

    These are so neat!!! Anna, did it take you long to make your bowl?

    Think of how much I could accomplish if I stayed off the computer!

    I made it in a few hours one evening. Of course, I had the strips cut already. The thinner strips work better, 1/2" to 3/4". I know what you mean about the computer. I spend way too much time on this board and on Facebook. It's so much fun and I am inspired by what you ladies post!
