I received a super set of placemats from mandys_momma today!

Here is a photo of the whole set:


and then a closeup of one of the placemats to show details:


They are all handwoven? in yarn and ribbons on the front, with fabric backing. How cool is that?

Thanks, mandys_momma!  Smiley

I'm so happy you like them!
Yes, they're handwoven..hence the unevenness of them.  Tongue

I had fun making them. Perhaps I'll try making myself a set.

Sent to my parnter Craftycakelady,and am posting pics for her, she is really busy and her camera is having issues.
Below you will see a set of 4 placemats. Each one was machine embroidered with a gold metalic thread around each of the flowers and a border was created at the edges.

Nice placemats, Purple.
I really like that fabric...I saw something like that at Joann's recently.
Neat how you sewed around the flower edges!

IsikkahJai, I had a brillian idea (if I do say so myself) for your placemats as I was waking up this morning.  Now to make them a reality.  Not going to be too difficult since I haven't gotten any further than just pulling your fabric.  Sometimes I stall until I'm hit with inspiration.  It was definately a great way to start off my morning.

No worries. I'm the EXACT SAME WAY. I have ideas that I want to do but all I've done is pull fabric, lol. I have a general idea fo what I want to do but nothing really starts flowing until I play with patterns  and colors Tongue

I ADORE those golden flower mats!!! GORGEOUS!! And the woven ones bring me back to my childhood Grin We had woven place mats, woven rugs, woven curtains....lol. I love my crafty family!

I received from ptarmic wumpus. They're reversible and absolutely beautiful.

Here is the felted side with the purple lilacs. Pretty, eh?


And the flip side, with fruit stamps made from real fruit.


Thanks p-w. They're awesomely pretty!

I love the lilacs!  Just checking in to let my partners know that I did mail.  I'm off to karate with the girls, though, so I'll have to send the DC#s tomorrow.  Can't wait to see all of the placemats hit the gallery.

I received!!!!! I was expecting the mail man to come up top the door but the package was so soft he just stuffed it in the mail box  Roll Eyes I opted for the four place mat option so here is the stellar loveliness that DQH sent me ^^ :

The group shot:


And the backs:

I asked DQH to make them for my girls, who are very different. My eldest love nature and water and "Finding Nemo" and my youngest love PINK. SPARKLE. GIRLY. RAINBOW. So you can see how wonderfully she fulfilled my request with these beautiful fabrics!!!

          ANNNNNNND my youngest, Cassidy, who thinks everything that comes from my swaps is for her....THIS TIME SHE WAS RIGHT!!  Grin Cheesy

THANK YOU SO VERY VERY MUCH DQH!!!!! Now my girls' table can be pretty (and safe!!)  Kiss Kiss

I received some amazing croched placemats from Miss Barbara.  I'll post pics later today.

I've received both sets of my amazing placemats.  I'm having technical difficulties at the moment.  Can't find the camera and the computer isn't recognizing my phone.  I'll get pics posted as soon as I get it figured out.

Wellllll....I guess since Disco Queen is having technical difficulties I'll post what I have. I didn't get the last placemat since my camera decided to be stubborn >.> But here's the three I made (my favorites!  Grin ) They're reversible!  Cool







I'm not the greatest seamstress in the world but I hope she likes them anyhow.  Smiley

here are the mats I made for MommytheMaid



These match her kitchen's theme, and in fact the cupcake material is the same stuff her curtains are made out of  Grin These are reversible and one side is the zebra and the other is the cupcake/turquoise.  I made a set of four of these ones.



These ones have freezer paper stenciling done on them.  The reverse side is some fun/funky fabric I had on hand. 



These one have the same freezer paper stenciling done as the above ones.  And the reverse side is the fun food fabric.  I personally love the watermelon one!



These ones are just a set of plain reversible character fabrics that I found at Joann's and thought they would be great for her kiddos.  My girls wanted to keep these ones, the oldest really liked the Superman fabric so I will have to make her one of her own. 

I ended up making 10 total because I felt bad that the cupcake set ended up a little smaller than a standard mat.  I cut these first and forgot to take in to count the added seam allowance for the pieced side.  I had alot of fun making these and hope MommytheMaid and her family enjoy them too.

IsikkahJai, you totally rock!!!  Thanks so much for posting pics for me.  My youngest LOVED the fruit ladies, they totally cracked her up.  You had my tastes right on the money.  I've purchased a lot of the fabrics in the placemats you made for me at one time or another.  We love them all!

Ahhhh, I'm so relieved! You're so spunky and fun I knew I had to get the Fruit ladies for you  Cheesy I think I use my placemats more than my daughters though. They're not used to them yet so they try to take them out from under their plates and use them for blankets!!  Roll Eyes I'm so glad I participated in this swap! Thank you DQH!!!!!!!!

So, I'm finally getting around to posting my pics.  Had to borrow a friends camera as mine has been eatin by the black hole that sometimes resides in my house.  Shocked It's rough, I know, having a roaming black hole as a guest.

Here are my lovely dovely placemats from IsikahJai...


and the back sides...

My girls still giggle about the fruit ladies.  I think the heart may be my second fav.

And from MissBarbara...

We love all 8, even the runt of the liter, the little wonky lunch mat.  Now that I've posted pics I can brew up some of that tea.  Yay! 

Thanks so much for being such great partners!

A set of mugrugs, the matching ones for the girls and a shroomy one for me Smiley


There are two of each of these for the girls, the top one with flowers is backed with denim.  The black one has a crown applique on it love em!


There are one of each of these, both with appliques, one says sweet and the other has a placesetting on it.


This one is another with the place setting on it.
