Modern Christmas

This week I whipped up 4 Christmas placemats called 'Modern Christmas'. Not your traditional red and green.

The material was purchased at the flea market in Phoenix when I was there last February. 


 The pattern is called Line in the Sand. It is from Alissa Haight Carlton's Blog. If you like the modern look you should check out the rest of her blog. She has some neat posts.

I had seen the pattern earlier and when I saw this material I thought it would work perfect.

I'm quite fond of the quilting that I did on the placemats. It really gives it texture.

All that needs to be done now is to put the binding on. The weather is closing in tonight so I see a good movie while I work on that.

I can't resist showing this last picture. This morning I had a hard boiled egg in my egg cup that I've had for a bizillion years. I got this as a young girl one year for Easter. It always puts a smile on me face as it brings back warm memories from a time gone by.

Hope you all have a terrific week and that you find something that makes you smile this week.



  1. Too cute!! I love your egg cup.
    I love your funky Christmas place mats - how fun. Makes a dreary day really cheery! Thanks for sharing!

  2. That egg cup and lopped off egg top makes me feel nostalgic too. Love the dark grey in the place mats - so elegant

  3. I love the placemats! Your quilting looks great. And the egg cup is so cute. I never had one, but it looks like something from my generation! :)
