Crocheted Table Mat

I'm enjoying crochet again. This week I've started making
a granny square blanket and I've also made a table mat with
 crocheted circles.

I made these circles months ago. They were going to be
made into squares to make up a throw but I changed my mind
soon after I started so they've just been stashed away these 
past months waiting to be used for another project.

I've thought of making them into a bunting for my craft space but
 this week I've decided to use them to make a table mat instead.

So after a bit of arranging and rearranging I was happy
with the colours and I started sewing in the yarn ends. I then 
joined them together and added a border with double crochets
 and it was done.

It's just simple but I like the bright and happy colours it brings
 to our table. It's also been a great 'quick and easy' project and I've
been able to start on my granny square blanket very soon after
finishing this.

I hope you're all having a lovely and restful weekend.
I have my driving test booked this Thursday so please wish
 me luck. I'm very anxious about it but needs must and
we do all we can for our families, so fingers crossed....

See you soon!


  1. That is a gorgeous and very unique mat! Love it!!! And good luck with the test! I'm sure you will be fine x

  2. I really like your mat - it looks so neatly crocheted, I'm not sure I would be able to get the border to look so neat. Good luck with your driving test!
