The Very Best of Intentions

I was on a roll this week, but then I had a weak finish. I intended on making this fabulous Martha Stewart Potholder today, but the day got away from me. I had all the cute cherry stuff out but got sidetracked with technical issues. I don't even want to tell you how many tries it took on my stinken printer to get that pdf to print enlarged. Way more than I am willing to admit.

The fabric is some stashed cherries I found. They make a perfect match for the extremely cute cherry measuring spoons and cups from Kathy. Maybe at sewing day I can whip it out. That's right, I have sewing day tomorrow... and I'm super excited about it.

Anyway, that's the news. I'm going to link to some very cool stuff now. Go forth and be motivated. xo

I think you and I should sit next to each other some time. I am away from my fabric stash right now, but as soon as I get home I am starting on the same pot holders. I love the cherry fabric!

Cute potholders and I love the fabric choices. Gosh I went and looked at the tutorial, glad we'll have you forging the way. Those few directions alone would be a real challenge for a new sewist!

Thank you.
Learning that I am not alone in my struggle to conquer technical glitches and unruly machines is somehow comforting. I know you will get it right in the end... or likely make it even better! Those prints are certainly bound to be something adorable in your hands.
Monica has been a busy Zombie, yes?

You're not alone. Sometimes I think my computer & printer can read my mind and are vjust like children that are misbehaving...when I have lots to do.

Love your cherry measuring spoons.

I made these pot holders a few years back. l.o.v.e. them! But the heat-resistant batting can be a little tricky to find. Can't wait to see yours.
