A few of the Woolies are doing them as a challenge. Our deadline is the last Tuesday of each month and then it's "show and tell" time.
This is JoAnn's background mat.
I wasn't sure what I wanted to do for a background UNTIL.....Sandy (no blog), brought her project in to share. Once we all saw it, we begged her to make us one too. It's a 12 x 12 board that she painted black and distressed. Then she Mod Podge'd burlap onto it. There are two small old looking nails in the upper corners of the burlap on which to hang the mat.
This is the January mat.
Here are all the ones done by the Woolies for our February reveal.
This one is March. My background on this one is too similar in color to the burlap, so I'm going to have to be careful when I'm picking them.
Marla decided to make hers into a pillow. She will then rotate the mats and have a cute seasonal little pillow to set out.
I better get started on the April mat!
