Do you get inspired by work of others? Do you feel sometimes that you have to make something particular and you have to make it now?
Catherine also made this Quilted Liberty/Linen Pouch some time ago. I really liked the seed stitch she used for the border. I made a mental note somewhere in my head to try it somehow in my future work. This placemat turned out to be a perfect subject for using this technique.
So here it is - a small thing that I enjoyed making. A simple gift for a friend. A perfect companion for her afternoon cup of tea.
