Now, how cute is this pattern for a Dresden Plate Mat?.....(and the house tea cozy and cat tea cozy that you can kinda see in the upper corners are just so, so, so adorable! The house tea cozy reminds me of dutchblue's tea cozy ----hers is so doggone, incredibly enchanting, I could move right into it!)
and improvising, I pulled together fabrics that I thought would work........
added rick-rack (my new love---I swear I have to add it to everything!)
And because the middle looked a little too plain (okay, sometimes I can't leave well enough alone) I rough-appliqued the flower and petals.
Okay, so there are some lumps and it doesn't totally lie flat....
