Folded Fabric Fun Potholders

Quick Gift Idea

I finally finished something.

Need a quick gift for Christmas?

These or any pot-holders go together really quickly.

Believe me, if I can find the time now to make these, you can!

Between work and school, my sewing room has been pretty quiet, but I finally finished this set of pot-holders. They were so easy to make.

I wonder who will get these for Christmas?

What special project are you working on for the holidays?


Until next time,

Have a Quilty Day!


Christmas is coming

Christmas is getting closer with each passing day. We all know it.

How are your preparations coming?

This year I resolved for it to be a homemade Christmas.

I have been with needle and thread for days now. I love it!

I can’t show you yet what I have been working on because my blog has about 5 readers and most of them are family, but I have finished

1 big gift

2 small gifts

almost finished 5 medium gifts

I have other assorted gifts in different stages.

For some I need to work on the sewing machine, some are in the cutting phase which is a good break once in a while, some require hand work, this is done in the evenings, and some are in the “I’m stuck” stage.

How are you doing? I’d love to hear about other’s progress.

Happy Quilting,


Packages, How we love them….

Two days = Two Packages!

One I was expecting, the other, a complete surprise.


The first was a package of wonderful woolfelts. I love working with wools.

I have two classes coming up next month involving wools. I need to make up kits for my students.


1. Wool is hard to come by here where I live.

2. It is kind of on the expensive side.

3. Find enough for 30 students. HA!

so I decided to take the plunge and try woolfelt. I have heard it was great, but I am a purist and like to stick with only the real stuff.

My package arrived yesterday. I’m thrilled with what was inside.

The best part is that Prairie Point Junction is having a sale right now through midnight October 30th. 20% off everything! Check it out for yourself at http://www.prairiepointjunction.com

I’m not affiliated with them or anything, I am just a really happy customer.


Here are a few of my wool projects

Now the second package was a complete surprise. I recently had an opportunity to subscribe to a quilting magazine through my local quild. Soon I got a letter thanking me and asking if I would like to get another year for just $12.00. I said yes right away. That is a steal! 6 issues for $12.00!

Anyway yesterday my little package was a thank you for renewing. It contained 3 fullsize spools of sulky rayon threads. These alone probably cost $12.00. What a deal.

This company is taking seriously the advice to take care of your customers. I will definitely recommend them to others.

Got to go now,

Happy Quilting
