I had a fairly productive day with my sewing today!
I joined the Sweetwater "Label Crew" a couple of weeks ago & asked them to send both the Dec. & Jan. projects. I made the Dec. project today - a journal cover. I love their iron on labels (aren't they cute?) and I thought this one was perfect with the "Etchings" fabric I decided to use for the squares. The lining is from a line called "Inkwell" - how's that for a journal? ;-)
And I've need some new potholders for several months & couldn't find any I liked. I used this Waverly fabric to cover my kitchen chair seats and I also have placemats out of it. I decided to make my own potholders using the fabric after I ran across it while I was getting out Christmas decorations last month. I finally got around to it today - I made eight. Yep, that's a lot, but it should do for awhile, don't you think? I used Insul-Bright (which is heat resistant) and a layer of cotton batting. Simple but still pretty I think.
I stitched some yesterday on a piece called "Let's Sew" by Urslua Michaels/Imaginating. I hope to get back to it tomorrow. We're doing a very informal SAL in the Pals group. Can't wait to see how creative everyone gets with theirs.
Thanks for stopping by - have a great week ahead. Happy stitching & sewing!
