Sewing Round Pot Holders with Brandy

Brandy brought Joshua home this morning and mentioned that she wanted me to show her how to make some pot holders when I had time. I told her to look through my stash and see if there was anything she liked. A few hours later, Voila! 8 roundish pot holders.

I showed her how to trace the trivet onto the material and batting. Then cut them out and how to layer them. Then she braved the sewing machine. She did a great job for someone who doesn’t own a machine or sew. (The color of the fabric is a little washed out from the sun. I thought it would be fun to take them outside on top of the mound of leaves I raked the other day.) The fabrics are fall colors. The flowers are highlighted with gold but you can’t see it in this picture.








Autumn Tints Blocks


I received these beauties in the mail today. They are from a swap I was in. There are 18 blocks total. I’m not exactly sure what I am going to do with them. I could make 5 more and make a lap quilt for the living room or den. Or make a wall hanging out of them. I don’t think I want to make anything bigger than a lap quilt. I just have too many projects as it is. It is almost big enough to be a table cloth. LOL.

What do you think I should do? Please leave me some advice.
