Two ideas for the butter molds

Butter Mold Chair pads ~ Light Version

Braided Table Mat

About a year and a half ago I designed a set of chair pads inspired from some antique butter molds.  They have been tremendously popular.  Well, to my surprise my Mother hooked me a set for my Birthday back in October.  This time she went with a lighter version, a tan background.  It's amazing to see the same design but with the color difference isn't it?
Also wanted to show you a neat Christmas gift she gave to me.  She made this cute little braided table rug with the selvage ends from pieces of wool.  How cute.  Honestly, we don't throw any wool scraps away.  We stuff pillows with out wool snippets.  It gives them a denser feel.

Until next time.....

It is fun to see the butter molds hooked with a different background, not sure which I like better!! The braided rug is wonderful too, what a talented mom you have!
Have a great day!
