Late start for Christmas ...

I hadn't originally planned on making Christmas this presents ... but I've now decided that I do want to have some of our presents come from the heart this year ... so the theme is around the kitchen and coffee, tea and some of John's home-made biscotti ...

So this weekend I made the trial and first set of potholders to go in the package.
I actually think that they came out better than the photos imply ...
This set is reversible and will go in the package with the Scattered Blocks quilt for my friend Patricia ... as she has also just moved from TX to CA, so this will be a little something for the new house.  One is made from the colors in the quilt and the other from coordinating fabrics in the scrap bin.

I searched long and hard for a potholder pattern and finally landed on this one by Texas Freckles.  It was designed to be fast ... though I think it's still taking longer to make these than I want ... I like the self-binding option and it makes a nice thickness with the right level of heat protection.

Most importantly ... this is a GREAT scrap buster!

Hope everyone is having a good weekend.

All the best
Lisa
