Another thing I think I want to do is make some quilted pot holders. I think this every time I see my ratty old pot holders that are all stained and scorched. I thought of this last year when I found out that Evan’s school has a craft sale in the church basement right around Christmas time. If I had known ahead of time, I thought, I could have made a bunch of pot holders, table mats, trivets, mug mats, etc. and had a table for the sale. The school gets the money for the table rental, and I would get the money from anything I sold. Sounds great.
Well, now I know ahead of time. I should be making these things now if I want enough to sell in December. I bought some fabric and some of the special batting to make it heat resistant last year when I was all fired up for this idea. I thought it would be a great way to practice different quilt squares; the small items are just one square each. And I could practice my machine quilting. And maybe I could sell something. At the very least the school would get $20. Is this the year? Is it?
