sea green & purple hydrangea


I first spoke about this here when I was all psyched to dedicate June to working on house projects. I must admit I fell short with my plans there. I had planned a lot more sewing projects and some organizing and cleaning out but, my energies and lack of focus took me elsewhere. However, I did make some useful kitchen items and I did finish these knit placemats this week.
I wanted to make something pretty for the table to encourage myself to slow down and enjoy a meal leisurely at the table. I realize this might mean waiting for a move when the dining room is not next to Little M's and eating quite late at night but, that is fine I will wait for that day and revel in it when it arrives.
Oh, and the beautiful purple hydrangea is from our common yard out back of our building...so pretty and lush.

No matter what I do or what I could do, my husband and I will always eat too fast at the dinner table. :) He's too antsy! But your placemats are truly lovely!

By the way, your hydrangea are beautiful!!! I thought they were fake at first...which is one of the greatest compliments in my books! :)
