Thought that embroidered place mats deserved their own little outing - what a wonderment they are.
How long do you think that these would have taken to embroider?
There is a also an extra large size - each one is executed perfectly in a range of sizes. You cannot really see in the photos but the larger flowers are different colours on each mat. Oh, the patience that woman had - I salute you dear in your marvellousness. I particularly go boggle eyed at the button hole edging. I have some other sets (cough, cough) that I will show you one day - equally lovely I think.
And yes we do use them!
