Giveaway Winners

Remember the Dec 3rd giveaway? Well. . .only 2 people entered. I hate to choose - so I'm considering them both winners!

I'll be emailing to get your shipping addresses! Congrats!!

My new projects:
I finished the potholders for my mom's Christmas. I also knitted washcloths for moms & Grandmas. Here are the fronts of the potholders. . . .
And the backs. . . .

I loved them so much I'm working on a set for myself. I want mom to test them first - I used a lining called Insul Bright. Its supposed to be okay with just a single thickness, but the feel of them seemed off, so I doubled it. If one layer works, next time I'll just use batting & the Insul Bright. (Okay - it says right on the company's web page to use one layer Insul Bright + one layer of batting. Now I know)

I've also made 2 baby doll slings - one for Emma & one I was commissioned to make for her friend. The friend also received a burp cloth, 3 baby wipes, a blanket & a cloth diaper. All for $10. Her mom was very pleased with that one!!

Emma is working on her Cupcake Party cupcakes. We made chocolate tonight. mmmmmm Messy project, but yummy.
Brad's been brewing 2 kinds of beer, and I made Farmhouse Cheddar cheese, clotted cream, buttermilk and butter. Mmmmmm.


  1. Love the pot holders!!! You are so crafty :)

  2. Love the potholders!! Even the colors are great!

  3. Those are adorable! I am getting my sewing machine this week and I can't wait! I made a few potholders from quilt blocks a couple of months back and I am really looking forward to making some more with my machine!
