These are my latest endeavors. The top is flannel receiving blankets. The idea came from Dianne Cademartori, whom we know is such a talented lady. I bought the flannel 3 years ago. It took my daughter-in-law getting pregnant for me to get my butt in gear and get them done. Now we wait to hear if it will be a boy or a girl.
The bottom one is an idea from a pot holder that had already been made. I picked it up at a garage sale. Only the original was made of acrylic. I had put it in our holiday trailer and thought someday I would build one. Well, poor hubby got a hold of it and put a very hot frying pan on it and it melted. (Who makes a pot holder out of acrylic?) So I took what was left of it into the house and made another. Only cotton this time. I'm sure DH will be afraid to use it for awhile.


  1. Much more sensible to make the holder out of cotton. I expect the person who made the original was thinking in terms of appearance rather than function! It does look good, and it’s a good way to use up small balls.

  2. That's odd, glad you redid this right😀

  3. Fabulous colors for those receiving blankets!!! :)
    That is a wonderful potholder!!! :)
