A shot of color

I needed some new potholders and whipped a couple up last weekend. I used Warm & Natural's Insul-Bright which is recommended for oven mitts.  I think it's a bit thin for my taste, so if I make more I would probably add an extra layer of thin batting.  I do really like these though.  I think they'd make a great Christmas gift.  I also tried doing a machine stitched binding on the second one.  This was a good exercise for me and a reason to try more of them.  They certainly make good use of scraps. 

I hope you all had a great weekend.  Ours was especially busy with the start of the Christmas festivities.  Tomorrow is my birthday and I'm feeling like it's time for a contest.   Stay tuned!
