I have all of the motifs done. I did them all with DMC #5 Perle Cotton I had left over from other projects. Now I just need to decide how to arrange them and then follow the directions for finishing the place mat. The directions for finishing reminds me of the Great British Baking Show technical challenge; “ Arrange 6 motifs across for 4 rows and tack together.”
I thought about making a recipe this month but didn’t really like my choices. Everything was very “hearty” like these:
Or unusual in ways I didn’t want to try.
We have New England Boiled Dinner; I’m not sure how many this is supposed to serve but it must need a really big pot.
How about Potato Pecan Loaf? I had a hard time figuring out how this would taste.
And of course, Beef Tongue Mexican Style
Next week I should have the place mat tacked together if not blocked.
I'm from Minnesota and have been crocheting since 2003. I inherited a box full of Workbasket Magazines from my mother-in-law and became obsessed with the vintage patterns.
