Farm Visit and more table mats

We made a trip to the farm for my grand daughter`s first birthday and sorry so busy partying I forgot to take photos so now have to wait for Xmas. We took our little van to sleep in and have left it on the farm as we will be going back to celebrate Xmas with the family. Not long after we arrived and set up our "room" it started to rain and rain and rain. Our van became an island surrounded by water and SIL got us a cattle grid so we could get to bed. Fortunately next morning it had been absorbed into the ground and we were once again part of the mainland. It continued to rain on and off for the whole time we were there but this added to the birthday celebrations as the rain was very welcome even if it did play havoc with the reaping of the crops. We returned home very tired as we had celebrated for 3 days and we will return in time for Xmas and it will be a happy time to spend time with the family.

These are two more table mats I have made using the free pattern from Among The Gum Trees blog. I searched through my books for Xmas patterns and adapted them to use because I wanted every placemat to be different, I still have a few more to finish along with my other sewing and Xmas parties to attend.
