Spring Placemats

Well, my kids have started calling me "that crazy placemat lady".  Yes, I  made more placemats

During a trip to JoAnn's, I saw this gray and yellow cotton fabric.  As many of you know, gray is one of my favorite colors, and the yellow shapes reminded me of daffodils.  I thought to myself, "What can I make with this?".  Well, placemats, of course!

 Now I just couldn't show you a bare placemat without a little special treat, and a piece of glazed lemon cake looks fabulous on it!  But then, I realized a cup of my favorite iced coffee would be delicious too...

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to eat!..
followed by a trip on the treadmill!


  1. Heather,
    your placemats are so stylish, makes me wish I could sew! Everything looks very cute and VERY yummy! Love your flowers & pitcher!
    I had a big lop eared bunny named Benjamin, he and my cat traveled cross country with me when I moved from CA to NC. He was the boss of our little or not little animal family! He kept my rottweiler and dachshund in check!

  2. What a cozy little setting. Love the fabric. Love the dessert and beverage too.

  3. i want that cake...it's not possible to have too many placemats....beautiful

  4. You know, I have become a fan of the combination of gray and yellow. I wish there was a place I could use it in my home. Nice placemats. I agree with the others...you can never have too many.

  5. I love the fabric! You are so talented...I cannot sew anything!

  9. I love the placemats and I just finished eating a piece of your cake...yummy! So good.

  10. Love the color combination of yellow and gray. I think great thing about gray is you could match it with almost any color and will turn our pretty nice!
