My mother-in-law called last night to ask some questions about a little trivet I gave her last month.
She wanted to make some and send them to my sister-in-law in Colorado.
She just loved the pattern of the one I had given her.
As it happened, I had two more of them already made up. She kept protesting that she had not called to get more, and I kept telling here I was thrilled to be able to give them to her.
I made up two more for my MIL since she would be giving hers to SIL.
It was fun to try out different stitches. I don't worry much about perfection in these. They will be ruined in a short time anyway, if they actually use them, as I hope they do.
Remember those wild red blocks I made a few weeks back? I decided I did not want to continue on for a table runner, so I stuck them in the pot holder box. Here they are all made into a sizeable trivet to protect counters from hot dishes. I found another orphan block in the box and made it up, too. My MIL is thrilled to have handmade items. I am not sure which ones she will send to SIL and which she will keep. She loves red, so I think she will like them all.
I hope that seeing my projects will inspire you to begin or work on a project of your own.
