bathmat


Well the last few weeks must've provided the nationwide brainwave in the form of making bathmats, because simultaneously, all these bathmats appeared in blogland on some of the blogs I read...I too had had this brainwave and thought would show my humble results....it has been washed 3 or 4 times now so isn't as pristine as when made it...and is rather haphazard in the style, and colours blending -ahem- or not!


I used the back of a smallish old towel, and then sat one sunny afternoon freeform patching together my scraps that were too precious to throw away and too small to use for anything in particular....its not perfect! but what I do love abou it is that every scrap peice has been used in a project for someone I think is wonderful ....the toile in a bag, the duck egg blue floral in an apron for my mum, and a cushion for a friends nursery...the green in a table cloth for my family and so on. So a wee bit of pretty to brightne my bathrooms day.

This is what patchwork, or quilting is supposed to be: using old scraps to turn into some totally new. Isn't it a tradition to cherish? Wonderful job.

Beautiful and practical. Funny how the creative bloggers sometimes work in synch. Happens to me all the time.
