Potholders!

Yippee! Ba{M}S potholders!

Awesome potholders from Katherine arrived a week and a half ago and I realized I didn't post about them.  (These are from my Be a {Modern} Swapper group.) I love them!  

Here's my inspiration mosaic:

I said to try something new and that's exactly what Katherine did! She got some experience with a couple new techniques and I got some great potholders (which I need because we only had two before!).

I made a couple more simple potholders for my mother-in-law for Mother's Day, but I didn't snap a picture.  I was a tad under the weather on Saturday and I had to do a quick finish late at night.

As we enter May, I begin the ramp up to the huge birthday bonanza that is the summer in my family. I have 12 family birthdays (13 including me, but I usually just buy myself fabric, rather than making myself something!) from June 1-August 31, plus Father's Day. I'd love to make everyone something but I just don't know if I am going to make it this year. I'm trying to stay realistic and think small. But I'm not good at that. Lots of grand intentions... Away to the drawing board!
