Last year Johnny came to visit during Easter and brought some old flannel shirts, pillow cases and bed linen. I had asked him to do so, because I think recycling is a good idea. He wanted me to make two place mats out of the pillow cases, which I have worked on the last days. I believe these colors are from the 1970's? They are not "my" colors, hence a bit difficult working on... I didn't want to use too much of the pink and green for not making them too "intense" (sorry, I don't know the correct word for it), but I think all colors (fabrics) are beautiful - but in small pieces.
