Last week brought a few more packages of placemats for our challenge and a couple of photo entries. Sometimes it is just fun to go to the post office and get happy mail, even if it isn’t really for me. These two arrived the same day. Carolyn Howerton sent a lovely pastel floral mat, and Carole Leaverton sent a fun sailing theme placemat.
These four mats made with food prints by Susan were really cute.
Diann sent a beautiful mat with two hand embroidered blocks, along with a set of cases for Safelight.
Connie Wolfe sent three mats using up a bunch of scraps.
Carol Preston made hers in a fall theme.
Cathy Walker was playing with her embroidery machine, and made a cute mat great for a man.
A total of 41 entries were received with 26 actual placemats in my hands for donation to Meals on Wheels. I wrote down each entry as it arrived either by photo or post office, assigned a number to each one, and used a random number generator to pick the winners. The Grand Prize winner of the Color Wheel Stash Pack from Colorways by Vicki is Susan Grancio. The Shirbori Hand Dyed Dish Towels in Blue were won by Kathleen Rountree, and the Lavender ones will go to Niki Winchell. Congratulations to all the winners!
Thank you to everyone that participated in the challenge, it was a fun way for a quick finish, and Meals on Wheels will be delighted.
What are you sewing this week?
