For one reason or another....a bit of crochet has been what I have been picking up to work at when I have a chance. I have finished up several more cute if not so useful apple jackets......and this vintage hot mat as well. The pattern has been around a long time and I have seen several made of this pattern over the years.....but had never owned one. This one was made with no one in mind.........so, for now I will look at it now and again. If any one likes yellow, just let me know. It's yours if you'd like it! It's 5 1/4 inches square, double layered, and a nice little spot to set down your teapot. If you'd like to make one of your own, the pattern is right here.
