The Newsprint Series: Placemats

 

 

 

Placemats!

 

 

 Q&A

 

What?

A placemat is a protective tablepad

usually made of paper, plastic or cloth.

 

 

Where?

Restaurants, cafe's and homes.

 

 

Why?

Because they look cute!

Oh, I guess they also protect the dinner table from water marks,

food stains or heat damage.

 

 

 

Placemats!

Don't tell me,

you made placemats this weekend.

 

 

I did indeed.

They are part of my Newsprint Series.

 

(yes, yes)

Weren't you supposed to be thinking of a

new 'little lengthy' project?

 

 

 

One to replace 'Beyond the Square'?

Yeah I was,

but my will wasn't willing.

 

 

Everytime

 I tried to think of a new project, huge

 chunks of my brain shut down.

 

 

After about 5 seconds,

I barely had enough juice running through me

to open my chocolate bar.

Are you back on chocolate then?

 

 

 

Was

I meant to be off it?!!

Ahh you are teasing me, nice one!

Getting back to the placemats;

I like the gingham.

 

 

 

Me too!

 

The black & white gingham makes a great back drop for

the Newsprint hearts,

and the red stitching.

 

 

I am going to call them

"I will do anything for love"

placemats.

Why?

 

You know, when rock meets love (ballard).

Think Meatloaf.

Stop!

…thinking about your new 'little lengthy' project.

It's hurting all of our heads.

 

 

 

Chocolate eat now.

Brain no work, tastebuds do.

Yum!

 Have you considered writing up tutorials

for your craftlings?

 

 

 

Wha?!

 

 

 

You know, little step by steps

to help people along with their projects…

 

 

 

Whoa?!

Another part of my brain is shutting down!

 Fine!

 

 

I will put your suggestion on my blog

'improvements' list.
