proggy mat_001.JPG
Hello, I spent many happy childhood hours helping my mother to make proggy and cliquie mats. There is a difference between the two kinds: with proggy mats the clippings were cut quite short and pushed through the canvas with a progger; with cliquie (not sure of the spelling) mats longer clippings were placed under the canvas and pulled through, a bit at a time, with a clique (hook). The picture I've posted is of a very small proggy mat which used to belong to my Aunty Freda. It now resides under my computer desk. I've got other pictures to put up at a later time.
