    January place mat of the month

    Hi Everyone... Happy New Year.
    I finally got these done this past weekend and in the mail this morning. Being sick last month sure put me behind...and i haven't even begun to catch up on all the goings on on the Board. Starting on the February and March place mats tonight as i'm having thumb surgery in two weeks and will be in a cast for a while. Thanks for looking ... and for sharing the progress of this project with me. Name:  January place mats.jpg

    each one is cuter than the other. I love looking at your monthly placemats
    I look forward to seeing what you will come up with every month. these,
    as the others are adorable. excellent work. so cute!!
    I have a cousin i'm tying to make monthly things for. like your idea.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Very cute. Are you just making these up or getting them from a set of patterns? They are so cute.

    They are just lovely. I would not like to put a plate on them and cover them up. I look forward to seeing what you come up with for each month.

    Good luck with your surgery.

    Totally adorable! Echoing the question, is there a pattern?
    Good luck with your surgery!

    Is your surgery for basal thumb arthritis? I had that surgery last Monday. Still on the pain meds so a little woozy, but I'm going to try to sew some strip blocks (on muslin foundation) today or tomorrow. Have to finish the bills and probably take a nap first.

    i love your placemats, especially the kitty!

    Theya re really cute placemats. I would probably use them as a decorative table runner, though.

    Once again they are all cute. I thought about you yesterday and wondered if I had missed the new placemats.

    They are all so cute, and fit right in for the winter season. I hope your surgery goes well, and you have a good recovery.

    Each month you out do yourself. These are cute, cute, cute! You really should think about making some patterns to sell; I think you would do very well. Best wishes for a speedy recovery from your surgery.

    I'm partial to the black cat, but they're all way cute!
