I have to make a bunch of potholders, so that will be my goal for this month! I have 2 finished, 3 in the process and 5 more pieced...but I need at least 15, maybe more! I am linking up with Sew BitterSweet Designs
My mother-in-law used to give every family a new potholder every Christmas - they were ones her mother had made - but that supply has gone dry, so I'm picking up the tradition in her place. We love all the potholders we have from her and I hope the new ones give as much pleasure as hers have. I am using flannel for the pieced part, a layer of batting and the backing is old towels. Hers were cotton, batting and old towels!
Now that's another great idea! I'm kind of making a list for next year to work on each month. It was my goal this year, but ha ha! Love the design you've chosen and flannel is such a good idea! I'll start looking at thrift stores for flannel shirts and old towels. Batting scraps I have. =)
Good luck on your goal. That is a very sweet tradition to continue for your mother-in-law!
What a lovely family tradition! Good luck with achieving your December goal.
I love these sorts of traditions. Good luck with your project. Looks like you are making good progress.
What a wonderful thing to do! I love traditions!
What a fun tradition to continue!!! I love it!
your name caught my attention as I read a comment you had made on the Ellison Lane blog.
I'm a farmer and a quilter too. Now I'm looking at your post and see that you are making beautiful potholders, lol, I'm a bit of a potholder obsessed maker too
What a fun tradition. I'm sure your family will love them. You've made great progress so far.
That's a great tradition. I bet your family will love that you have continued it. So much better than new underwear. lol
It seems that you are well on your way to completing this goal. What a lovely tradition, I might want to copy this idea. Thank you for sharing.
What a lovely tradition! Your pot holders are beautiful!
The idea that I love the most is that you’re continuing the tradition of a potholder every year for every family member! I’m going to have to tuck that one away as a possibility.
