Confessions of a Christmas Elf

Christmas stresses me out! For some reason, every year I inflict myself with so many goals and projects that there is no way I could get them all done. I do this to myself. This year will be different (I think I said that last year, too, and it was merely better).  This year my Christmas sewing projects are going to be ones that bring me lots of joy and no stress. This is the year of the pot holder!  I am having a blast designing pot holders.  I’ve made them for everyone in the family, I’ve made them to sell in the shop, and now neighbors, friends and even the school bus driver knows what they’re getting this year!

Here is a collage of some of the 50+ pot holders I’ve made so far:

    Fun to see all of them in a collage! I have been sewing little things for presents, too, and hoping I get then done soon enough not to stress over it! Looks like you are well ahead of the game!

    G’day Jamie. Your pot holders are gorgeous. Well done and they are a great gift. The small quilting group I belong to had their annual night out last night and they each made a mug rug to give as Kris Kringle presents. Maybe next year I will suggest pot holders.! Take care. Liz…
