Potholder Pass Round 7

This also came yesterday.  It was like Christmas or my birthday yesterday and I am elated!!!.   Jazzed, jazzed, jazzed.  See why I do these swaps.  It keeps me active in my favorite field of study and I get great stuff from strangers.  It's a gas!!!  Or as the younger say "It's the bomb". Anyway they asked what colors I had in my kitchen so my secret partner could craft potholders to match.  It's a fun way to keep busy and you get a set of much needed potholders to boot.   Of course my kitchen is done in pink and green.  Are there other colors???  he he he  So here are the potholders I received from jennspen from Alabama. Thank you Jennifer, they are the best!!!

 Aren't they fun????   I love them!!!  Too pretty to use.  But I cook and create recipes often so they will get good use.  I should share some of my recipes with my readers.  But today I need to finish another swap. 

Sewn Spaces Swap

Last night around 8-8:30pm I was going out to a friends house and when I opened my front door there it was.  A big box.  Boy, was I surprised.  It's early yet to receive any of my swaps, but that was what it was.  A box from my swap partner, SpontaneousThreads.  Inside was a cache of great surprises.  Here is a mosiac I made of the pictures I took and a few she took.  Wait until you see it.  It is wonderful!!!!  Now I finally have a Sewing Machine Cover!!!  A Great One Too!!!

If you want to see what I said with each picture go to my Flickr Photostream here.

Oblong Potholder Tutorial

One of the many swaps I am doing on Flickr is the Pot Holder Pass.  I don't know who is making mine and the person I am making for doesn't know who has her name.  We are supposed to post teases(pictures) during the creating process.  I posted this picture to the stream.  It was a big hit.  They liked the fabric and the style.  Someone wanted to know what pattern I used.  I informed her I made it up but would share the pattern.  The next lady asked for a tutorial.  So here it goes.  This tutorial was way to picture heavy so
I am adding it as a pdf file.  Just click the picture below and it will take you there.  I hope everyone understands my directions.  I have given my email address for any questions.
