Finished Objects - PlacematsI

I took some photos the other day of the finished place-mats I made for my Dad. The only thing was I took them with the phone in my camera in bad lighting. I finally managed to take new photos with my other camera.

I used the flower pattern I used for the coasters.
At least now you can clearly see what the colours are. Of course Dad's favourite football team is Hawthorn :P They are not my favourite but I must admit I did like them a little back in the 1980's when I was a teen and didn't know any better (that's my story and I am sticking to it)


Dad liked the Hawks (that's the teams nickname/mascot) that he painted the outside of our house mission brown and yellow *rolls eyes* You wont see him painting the house in those colours now though. Someone else paints the house for him. Personally I think if Mum had thought about the colours she may have clicked to what Dad was really up to. She may have made him paint the house in her team colours although I don't think red & black would have looked very good. I may have to dig out some of the old photos & scan them so I can share them.

Ha! Ha! Your dad is what we would call a 'Die Hard' fan of football!! Painting your face, body or house in team colors qualifies! LOL I must admit though, I like these colors together.

Poetess, I must have been a die hard fan too but for a different team. I used to dress in my team colours & I even painted my finger nails to match :D
I don't mind the brown & yellow either :)

You are quite talented. I'd be cross eyed by the time I finished!
