Beautiful Potholders Arrived and Just A Few Pictures

x
I have to say I love these potholders. Rebecka @ http://rebecka-rasmataz.blogspot.com/ sews beautifully and just click on the picture to view the quilting on them, hope you can see all the work she put into each one. The recipe she sent is for a coffee cake that will be cooked soon. A few more pounds added, but it sure does look worth it.

I still can't show you the potholders sent her way, because I know she hasn't received them. Rebecka had my name once before on a purse swap and to this day it still travels with me with my sewing projects tucked inside and I finally get to make her something, so exciting. When I got into this swap, I took a look at my potholders (think they might of been given to me for wedding gifts 35 years ago), you wouldn't believe the way they look. Here the sewing machine runs all the time and have never made any potholders. Now I'm hooked. What a great gift to give a special friend with a favorite recipe.

I haven't been doing a great job with taking pictures at our sewing bee meetings. Here are two pictures of some very talented ladies quilt tops they finished last Thursday. All I can say, if you don't belong to a group of ladies getting together, sewing and having lots of laughter, you just don't know what your missing.

The potholders are wonderful and I'm with Barb...the bread in the background made me hungry..and those two quilt tops the ladies made are VERY nice. Thanks for the post!

I like the rounded edges of the potholders. It looks easier to bind that way.
Very nice quilts from your friends.

Those potholders are adorable! What a clever idea for a gift with a recipe & some tea, of course! I can imagine that the ones you sewed are cute as a button bonnie!!

I love your potholders. They are inspiring me to make some of my own. Beautiful stained glass window quilts. Lovely colors.

Pretty potholders. What a fun swap.

Bonnie,
I had to mail your potholders early because I was in your great state of Texas and just got home tonight. I got to enjoy the Riverwalk and the festival in San Antonio while I was attending a work conference. I'm glad you like your potholders. I really liked your blue dishes and that was my inspiration.

Nice potholders.It's funny that we use the same old ones over and over and over until we get burnt using them. Then we replace them. lol
