Some sewing stuff

Look what my good friend Trudy made me!!
Two cute potholders from a great coffee print!
I love these potholders, they are so useful

If you haven't got one, this is how they work, you can slip your hand into the pockets on the backs it works just great.

And here is my first of a series of place mats.
I have unofficially enrolled my mother in law in my very own "place mat of the month club"
I have lots of denim mats cut out already so I am just going to go with whatever theme or style interests me each month

I decided to go with bright and cheerful for January. Just in case there are any January blahs creeping around.
Recognize those fabrics Trudy???

Very cute! Do you have any directions (or Trudi)??

That placemat is bound to scare away the blahs! How do you become part of your Placemat of the Month club???

I love how the placemats turned out! Yes, I recognize the fabrics! Good use of strips. How many did you make?

You can never have too many potholders or placemats! They are both great gifts!
