another UFO can be crossed off the list; these are my rail fence placemats. they are ideal to showcase my blueberry stoneware plates and bowls made right here in maine at union pottery. yes, i'll use them and they will get dirty and then washed. if they wear out, i'll make more. almost certain i can find more fabric someplace. **** and a pat on the back to joann's for closing their stores on Thanksgiving. i am boycotting any store that chooses greed over celebration this holiday.
