Sleepy Saturday Sewing

In one week, the weather here has gone from nice to rainy to flooding to nice to super nice to hot.  Today it is cool and very windy.  While E and my husband went out this morning I sneaked upstairs and made a pot holder to coordinate with a hand towel I had made a while back.  

The weather has nothing to do with the sewing.  I just can't hear anything else right now except the wind whipping against the roof in this attic room.

For the towel, I just used a strip of fabric from a jelly roll I've had for a while.  The towel was an extra from the Christmas towels I made.

For the potholder, I loosely followed a tutorial from  The only obvious difference is that I did a diagonal quilting stitch, rather than horizontal or vertical.  The fabric was left over from an apron I made for myself.

If you would like to see better details, just click on the pictures to make them larger.
I got done just in time to eat lunch and take a nap.  :)

Happy Saturday
