WIP Wednesday - Getting back in line

Linda Beth

This has definitely been a "continuing on" sort of week which is just fine by me! As anyone who's seen my UFO / WIP list can guess, I certainly don't need to start any new projects! But there are plenty of other folks who do have new projects they're sharing, linked up to Lee's blog Freshly Pieced, for WIP Wednesday!

placemats
FINALLY stitched up this second set of placemats left over from a project I did last summer. Now it's just a matter of binding.

Completed
