Beautiful and so tasty, it made the house smell so good!
Last year, I made une galette des rois with salted caramel
which looks like the original one with frangipane
(delicious too, but it is almond base, and so not doable at home!)
Brioche is also quite traditional,
it is a nice treat, quite rich with a lot of eggs and butter
but very little sugar.
It is also time consuming, with 3 rises (one of them overnight),
so it requires some planning.

but the sewing itself is not too bad.
Since I had a bundle of fat quarters in most of the color ways,
I made each placemat a different color, but pretty much the same print.
I chose a white linen /cotton fabric to balance of the colors.
The rickrack is also different for each one of them.
I think they look quite cute all together.
I did not do a binding, I felt it would have make it too busy.
The back is a red and white picnic print, perfect in case people are scared to eat on the white side!
They are the perfect touch of color in the coldness of the Scandinavian North!

I could not help myself : I used Liberty of London with my linen!
They are pretty fast and easy: trace, iron, cut, iron, stitch...
Then a little hand stitch around the perimeter with embroidery floss,
and voila: ready for tea!
