I FOUND IT.... I found it!

Yep, I found the picture that was 'lost' the other day when creating the post for the BowTie placemats. Guess where it was? Still in the camera! . So without further ado, here it is:
My house has a tiny little area off one end of the kitchen that we call the "Morning Room". Kind of a joke, really, as the area is so small. Because the window faces the street, it is a nice little place to sit and enjoy morning coffee, while watching the day begin.

The pic below shows how I finished the backing. I did a very simple layer, stitch around the edge [no binding!], and turn. Makes for a nice and very quick edge finish. After the item is "birthed", just sew up the little partial seam and ta dah, it is done! I like that.

Thank you for stopping by to visit. . . until next time. . .

Hugs,

Wish I could have coffee with you in your morning room! The mats are lovely.

I love the placemats. It looks like a cozy spot for some coffee and stitching. I saw your comment over on Sucrette's blog. I pulled out some yarn last night and have 4 rows done on the Giant Granny Challenge. Hope you join in, too.

Your placemats turned out so nice. I love the little bowties. Your backing method looks like a very simple effective finish.
