More half-moon placemats

Another round of half-moon placemats. The other set worked out so well for our table, that I had to have another one. You never can have too many placemats, can you?

I saw this brown and white damask calico fabric and knew I had to have something in my house with it.


I really love the pattern. For some reason I think of Hawaii - is there a tiki or pineapple in there somewhere?


And I decided that since placemats are meant to spilled on, what better backing than coordinating terrycloth?

The idea of using terrycloth really came from growing up with six siblings, and many spilled glasses of milk.

I remember it like it was yesterday, the tip, the audible group gasp, and the chaotic napkin swoop as my mother ran to the sink for a towel in hopes of keeping it off the floor. Inevitably, it was the very day she had spend hours mopping that blue and white linoleum. It was clean while it lasted.

And, I have to say, the terry cloth does work to soak up those spills. As luck would have it, on their very first use, my husband bumped his water glass. Napkin swoop diverted.


And I decided, that since they're so pretty, they can even stay out all day.
