Bit of sewing...

Would you believe this is a potholder...saw some when fooling around on the internet so sat down and tried making my own pattern and this  is what I came up with.  I would not mind if it was a little bigger but it is still plenty big to use to get a hot pan out of the oven.
The one above and the one below are about the size of a sheet of paper...(Ignor the thread stuck the the front)
and the last one might be a bit wider than one...I started them to make a bigger crumb block, then decided to make potholders of them.  Not real happy with the binding...I did not do a continuous binder where I mitered the corners and I hate the job I did the other way.  The mitered corners are much easier in my book...I don't know what I was thinking.

It is still bitter cold...I just don't even want to get out and go anywhere in it.  But sooner or later I am going to have to get out and go to Walmart and the grocery.  Just not looking forward to it.

I do want to get back to sewing again, but another puzzle is calling my name.  I keep trying to forget about it but not sure how strong my will is in that dept.
