My Last Finish of 2012

Also known as: I'm going on a vacation and won't get to sew for the rest of the year.

Don't worry. Since I'm seriously not capable of twiddling my thumbs whilst at my in-laws, I'm taking my small cutting mat and some things I can cut and prep while my kids play at their Nana's house.

But here's my last little finish:

I had some leftover triangles from my Lucy's Crab Shack quilt (which is just waiting for some backing to go on sale). I thought at first I'd make some pillow shams, but I saw some fun patchwork bathmats on flickr and since I hate my ugly bathmats, I went ahead and made some.

Backed in navy blue terry cloth with corner thingies so I can add a slip-proof mat underneath.

Right now, this one is residing in front of my washer and dryer, and I kinda like it there.

Marking this one off the 4Q FAL list and ready to link up after New Year's. I'll still try to blog from Boise if I actually accomplish anything. Maybe I'll get to drool over my SIL's Gammill. And we always go do some fabric shopping, so I can't wait to see what I come home with!

Happy New Year!


  1. Clever idea with the triangle thingies for slip-proof-itude. Patchwork bath mat--might have to follow your lead and build one of those for my bathroom too. You are the Best Inspiration so far today, Happy New Year

  2. Wow! I just checked out all you finishes. Love them and you got so many done!
