Just a mat

This weekend I was sorting through my UFO drawer and came across some crochet edging I had made some time ago with the idea of making a couple of bedside table mats to match a favourite duvet cover.  The mats were already cut out and the crocheting done, everything just needed putting together.



I thought about this quite a bit because, although quick to sew up, the duvet cover is rather old now and a bit faded - so imagine the years that the unfinished mats have been occupying the drawer! - However I still love the design and a few years back even tried to find the fabric to buy another cover but .... No, of course not madam.... what do you expect after 20 years?



The crochet trim is a quick and easy pattern from the collection `Mil Labores´.  Well in the end I thought that as long as I have the bedcover and reminiscently use it once in a while, I might just as well have matching mats.......



......... and also one UFO less.
Until next week, happy stitching.
