I haven't finished the placemats but I have made great progress on my first crochet project. I'm working on the edging now so it will be done by Monday for sure. I really enjoyed working on this while watching movies and relaxing with out friends. The crochet blankets will be great travel and TV projects for a while.
I'm slowly getting the binding done on the 12 placemats. Sometimes I edge placemats really quickly on the serger but this time I'm doing an almost real binding.
It's "almost" because I don't actually join the ends together. I fold under one edge and jsut tuck the other end under the folded edge.
The tucked in piece hangs over the edge a bit so I cut it flush to the edge once I've stitched.
Only a few more to go but I'm really bored with then at this point!
I don't think I shared that I sewed all the leftover strips together and now I have about a half mile of fabric that will probably become even more placemats!

That leftover strip piece would make a beautiful long tablerunner (or 2 or 3 )

Great blanket - someone will enjoy cuddling with it. I was going to suggest a long table runner with matching placemats, but I see Wanda beat me to it.

Next up you need to learn to weave! hehehehe.... I think that creative folks just need to create -whatever the medium.

That is a lot of binding to do and reminds of the 10 quilts I bound over the holidays. I at least had the company of my friend so I didn't get bored. I was sure glad when the last one was done. That pieced fabric - you need to make more like that and end up with a veteran's quilt.
