Hostess Gift ...

We are off on a 24-day T@b Trailer camping trip in the southwest US ... can't tell you how excited I am to escape the rain of the Pacific Northwest ... as of today, we have had over 30" of rain in the month of October ... and the month isn't over yet!!

We will be spending 4 of these nights at two different friends homes during the trip.  I wanted to take a small hostess gift that can be hauled around in the trailer while we travel (remember ... a T@b is a very small trailer) and will still be in good shape when we arrive.

Pot holders!


Patricia just bought a new home, painted Polo Navy on her walls and a brown back splash with a white counter ... I think these will fit in well.



Brett has an amazingly beautiful and bright Palm Springs home ... so hopefully this play on color will work well for him.


I use one layer of insul-bright and one layer of 100% cotton batting.  I find this gives good heat protection to the hand, but still allows it to be thin enough to actually stitch effectively.  

I like making potholders ... as you can see here and here and here ... they are quick, they are functional, and lets face it ... no one goes out and spends a lot of money on their pot holders ... they get dirty and burnt and everyone always stuffs them in the drawer where no one can see them ... so home made potholders ... people kinda like that ...

Back to that T@b Trailer ... this ... will be our home for the next 24 days!


Just me ... hubby ... and two 50-pound dogs ... wish us well ;-)

All the best,

Lisa
