Fantastic hostess gift for the 2010 holidays:
These would be Square mitt potholders using the recipe from the Bolt Neighborhood blog. Super quick and easy. I did forget to add a hangy thingie to one, but details-schmeetails, it's all good. One-third of a yard of fabric (I purchased mine from Hart's up the street) will make two potholders, and I scrounged through my stash for the rest of the requirements. A set of awesome and actually useful gifts for less that $7 — sweet!!
The Bolt Neighborhood blog has been posting some really great holiday gift suggestions over the past few weeks. It also inspired me to make a set of placemats from scraps and stash, which are in progress (pics to come).
We drove to my folks' last night for the holiday weekend, so I'm lounging around, still in my PJs while my husband and brother (who are "in charge" of Thanksgiving dinner this year) are off doing shopping for a deep fried turkey with all the trimmings. My mom offered to make our family's traditional chestnut stuffing, and I've been tasked to make an "experimental" stuffing. I'm going to try this apple, sausage, and parsnip stuffing. I heart stuffing (and parsnips and apples and sausage) so my fingers are crossed for a successful experiment!!! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
