Another Christmas gift is finished. Woohoo!!! I made these matching kitchen towels and hot pads for Rob's Aunt Marian. She is so sweet. We really love her. Anyway, her kitchen colors are cranberry and green, so I searched and searched for the perfect fabric. The towel tutorial can be found here. I'll have to find the link for the pot holders. I thought it was on my computer at the office, but alas, it must be on my computer at home. Time for a laptop perhaps? The potholders have a pocket on one end. I've tried making them with two pockets, in fact, that's what I use at home. But.....my hands are really small, so it's hard to grasp a pot while trying to remove it from the oven. So I thought it best to make just one pocket for Aunt Marian,
Colonial Quilts in Savannah. I don't like waffle weave for every day clean up kitchen towels especially on granite counter tops, but they make wonderful decorative towels. I may even make some for my own kitchen one day, but for now, I have an unfinished stack of projects for Christmas that have to get done. It's getting harder to find time for these between shuttling kids to/from school, karate, and church. But I always seem to find time to sew even if it's just for an hour or so. It keeps me sane! Plus I've thought of a new idea of putting silhouettes on pillows; I don't know who would get them yet. But I'm going to make them for someone! So I finish one project and add two more. No wonder my pile never seems to get smaller!
