So cute!! I wish I had found this earlier this year, but instead I will work on these over the winter and have them ready for next fall! Than you!

THANK YOU ~~ THANK YOU ~~ THANK YOU!!!! I have a round table, and you have NO idea how long I've been looking for either round or oval placemats. I had finally resorted to using an oval rug pattern. I can make them not only for Thanksgiving, but for every day use also. Again, thank you so much for posting these.
