PotHolder Weather

Now I know you've heard of coat weather, and boot weather and bathing suit weather, but I"ll bet you've never heard of potholder weather! Potholder weather is when it is soooooooooooo HOT you need to use potholders to grasp the steering wheel and gear shift in your car! I make these little potholders called micro-mitts and they are just perfect for this job! Almost everyone I know has at least one pair of these little gems. They are great for all types of cooking. Even in the car! Unfortunately I don't have any out in my car..........guess I should remedy that since potholder weather is here to stay for at LEAST another 2 months!

My stash of micro-mitts is getting rather low!

I've been busy decluttering my house and garage! I am trying to go thru closets and rooms and get rid of things that can still be useful to someone else and organize the things that I can still use. It's a big job! Especially since alot of these things belong to my kids and they left them here when they moved out!

I've also been embroidering shirts for my daughters wedding day. I've embroidered shirts for the entire bridal party including the Bride & Groom, Bridesmaids & Groomsman, Best Man and Maid of Honor as well as Mother and Father of the Bride and Groom, Grandmother and Grandfather of the Bride and Groom. Phew! That's alot of shirts!

Here is a picture of some of them:

I am working on a really beautiful house quilt right now and I'm just about finished. I'll try to post a picture of that tomorrow. Here is a sneak peek at one of the blocks while the quilt is still on the quilting frames:

But right now I think it is POOL weather. Time to go and take a dip in the pool to cool off!
Until next time.............Happy Quilting!
