I've been busy!

I've been busy, making potholders out of scrappy and/or orphan blocks.  I love using up scraps, although my scrap bag never seems to get smaller.  These eleven sets are the first installments of my 2014 Christmas Project.  Bob asked me how many I was going to make, and I told him that I honestly didn't know!

A couple more shots showing the variety of backing/binding fabrics I used.  Everything for these was from my scrap or stash piles.

May your bobbins always be full,


  1. I have got to do the same!!!! Everyone can always use them and they get used up....don't they?? Yours are gorgeous....will they be used??? They are so pretty!!!! Keep goin' (I say!!)!!!! Hugs.....

    1. I'm pretty sure they'll be used. I did the same thing last year, and they were much appreciated.

  2. These are all so pretty and a great gift idea (not just for Christmas!!!). Thanks for sharing :)

  3. What fun.....and so useful and pretty!

  4. They look great. I have a lot of fabric and scrap binding that I needed to find a use for. I am now making crochet rag rugs out of it. I am real happy with the way they turned out. The best part is the girls in my quilt group are saving they left over binding for me. It saves a lot on buying fabric.
