Hi all, I am still cranking out projects for August. i wanted to share my latest two. I used Satin DMC floss pastel colors to make these two, as I use my large plastic 7 count matting as a base. I bought these Trivets at Wal-Mart. they are made by Stitchables ( a part of the janlynn needle craft Company) which makes lots of great Cross stitch supplies. the Trivets do come with their own 18 count Aida cloth, but I chose to use my own cloth.
