On Good Friday my son Josh and his girlfriend Teen came over for lunch, Teen loves black and white, so I decided to make her a little gift, a covered journal and a couple of pot holders….I just had to add just a touch of red….

Last day of our four days off and I have done so much sewing lots of show and tell…my DH has been working so it has been a perfect way to spend a few days in the sewing room….

Take care Peg…..:>)…..

  9. Hi Peg--Love your new blog make over--aren't they fun to do???
    Love the gifty's you made--how sweet!
    and I am also working on the Gardener's Journal blocks--got one finished earlier today--I had started mine a year ago==but somehow they were put on a back burner and then all of you "popped" up doing them and I had been wanting to get back to them so badly--so I just bite the bullet and got them out and finished another one--thanks!!
    Hugs, Di

    The pot holders look great. What did you put inside them for the heat? Loved the book cover. Anyone's pattern or is it your own?

  23. Fabulous journal cover and pot holders...black and white looks fantastic together, then you throw a bit of red in and it gives it that much more! I am sure Teen would have been thrilled with her gifts.
