Hello, I was also able to do some sewing this weekend.  I entered a potholder into a potholder contest sponsored by .  The winner will receive a sewing machine and they are giving away 2 machines.  You can enter as many times as you wish.  The potholder I entered was one hanging in my kitchen now that I made when I was a teenager for my hope chest.

I've got another one to enter already made, but it is stored in the shed and I can't get to it by myself.  I made it when I was sewing quilt squares into potholders. Blue jeans was my next choice of material.  I cut the backseat out of a pair and serged bandana print around it, used flannel for the inside and more denim for the back.  I saw this idea on another site.  You can slide your hand into the back pocket. I also embroidered a design on the back pocket (after an hour of ripping the thread out).  I have no idea what the judges will like so I'm going to send a variety.  If anyone has any ideas, let me know.

Joey was with me on Saturday and we decided to make a few things for his mother for Valentines Day.  I already had a kitchen towel with multicolor stripes.  I used those colors to put hearts and "Best Mommy" on it.  I also have several black with light gray polka dots and pink trim cosmetic bags.  I embroidered a L in curlz font in light pink with black dots.  Both turned out pretty cute.  At least Joey liked them. 

Another busy weekend.  I should get my new sewing machine by Friday.  I can't wait!!!!!  I've got one project to finish and more to start.

Oh, I also sent Mainstreet Milledgeville a few pictures to see if they will let me enter some of my wares in their Milledgeville in the Arts for First Fridays.  Maybe I'll sell a few things there.  At least it doesn't cost anything.  No loss but time. 

Have a great week!
