One Hour Friday - Pink and Black

Yippee! I have my set of 6 placemats finished!

Today I made a hot pink/black & white one...

However I'm not ready to stop making them. I think I definitely need at least another 2 for a set of 8. After all, we do occasionally have visitors and I can't have them go placemat-less!

Looking at them in the photo I definitely see a lack of blue and green, so that will be the theme of the next 2.

As an aside, I'm sure most of you know today was Earth Day. We celebrated it by planting a ton of seeds which will hopefully turn into seedlings that we can transplant in a few weeks.

The kids had a blast filling the little pots with soil, then making holes with the end of a pencil and planting the seeds. Roll on warm weather!

great placemats, maybe you could make napkins to go with them and reduce the use of paper napkins, perfect earth day commitment!

Love your placemats! Would make a rainbow gift. Thanks for sharing your photos. I like that you are teaching your kids to garden when they are young. Looks like they are having fun.
