Last year Karen from Log Cabin Quilter sent me some vintage potholders. I posted a couple pictures, but am finally getting around to a couple more. I found this small wood rake at a garage sale for 10 cents and took all the lace and ribbon off of it, DH painted it black and I hung it on the side of my china cabinet.
This is the side view of my china cabinet.
This is the view from the front. These are some of the cutest little potholder dresses that I have ever seen.
It seems that after Christmas, when the mad rush is over, I like to work on some Christmas items. A couple years ago I bought the Art to Heart book "I Believe" by Nancy Halvorsen, and I hadn't made anything from it. I was looking through it one day and decided to make some tree ornaments for the grandchildren. They don't read my blog (or if the older ones ever do, they haven't told me), so I'm posting the pictures.
The Santa ornament is for Jonah.
The singing cats are for our 15 year old grandson - he is musically inclined.
The girls (2 of them) will each get an angel.
And the baby Jesus is for Eli. It feels good to have these done for next Christmas.
A week ago or so I spray basted this basket quilt in two sections and I've been thinking about how to quilt it. I didn't want to do an over-all pattern. Today I decided to get with the program and get started. I did a vine with leaves in the sashing, but that picture didn't download for some reason. I'll post it next time.
I'm using Aurifil thread and really like it. It's the first spool I have ever tried and I'll definitely get more!
