Lunck kit, part two

Do you remember the lunch kit I made for Emilie a while ago? You can see it here: http://aufildujardin.blogspot.com/2011/06/lunch-kit.html She uses it not only to bring her lunch to work, but also when hiking with her boyfriend. That's were my troubles begin: her boyfriend was upset because there was only one place mat... Sigh...
As you can imagine, I was quite happy to make a second one, but I did not take notes, and Emilie forgot to send me the dimensions.
This afternoon, I started counting the stripes to find out the length... Then I checked whether I still had enough fabric left, and, oh joy, I still could see the shapes I cut for the first place mat. Yeah! And I had enough fabric left!
Here is the second one, finished.

I called the workshop about my PC. It is ready. Now the question is: when can the man deliver it? If you have read "a year in Provence" you know that it may take some time...

Rosemary has commented about the entrance. I do agree, it must me nice, not depressing. But I have a love/hate relationship with my house (it is a divorce house). My love for it grows as I revamp it to my taste. I started it about five years ago, by having a new front door installed. Since I prefer avoiding credits, and prefer travels to hard works, revamping is not going fast. But once a room has been done, I love it. This entrance won't be something special. There is only room to open the doors, and for a cupboard. No windows. But at least, it will be clean and as light catching as possible. And I did not imagine I would enjoy that work that much...

It is a very satisfying feeling to do a home improvement project. Not only does your house look better but you save money by doing it yourself. I don't blame you for traveling. It is so much more fun than work. :) Love the place mat. I am sure Emile's boyfriend will too. You are a good mother.

The second place mat turned out really nice! You have such a good eye for beauty, I am sure that you will make the entryway look really inviting and pretty. :)

Great that you had enough fabric to make a placemat for the boyfriend.. Can't say I would do house over travel..but as you change the house to suit you and your taste at least when you walk in it will be more appealling and cheery.
