Have you ever purchased the items
necessary to make something
and then put it off
thinking it's going to be too difficult or take a long time?
Two years ago or so I was in a quilt shop and saw
this great chenille floor mat.
I asked the owner how to make it
and purchased what was needed to make one.
I was going to make one for my sister.
I'd plan to make it, but wouldn't because I was
afraid it would take too long
or be too difficult
or not turn out the way it should.
Yesterday I finally decided
"Today is the day."
I pulled out the fabric and cut the four layers plus the canvas for the bottom.
A piece of batting was cut and the
stitching lines were drawn on back of the canvas.
The stitching began.
This went together so quickly!
And turned out great.
I haven't washed it yet, but will before I give it to my sister.
(Act surprised, Deeda!)
Here I was almost dreading making this floor mat,
put it off for two years
and it took all of
