Potholders and Blackberries

Insul-Bright as it comes from the store.

Squares of Insul-Bright waiting to be made into 8 potholders - 2 per potholder

My first potholder; waiting for a square of batting to be added to the center before I close it up and stitch around the edges.
I am really enjoying making these potholders and yes one will be for ME. Perhaps I will make one to match the project for my friend as well.

This morning I decided to move a raised bed that wasn't producing a thing by the fence next to the driveway. I've moved it to the front yard and filled it so I could plant the blackberry plants that I got from Gurney's in that Grab Bag. I think the Blackberries look quite happy now...
Along the front of the bed I transplanted some straggly looking mint that was growing in this bed when it was by the fence. As soon as I can I want to add a top dressing of more dirt and manure but I will wait a bit to give the blackberries a chance to settle in.


  1. Loving the potholders! I think i need to do some too. My old ones are looking very old.

  2. I need to make some new potholders. Those you buy aren't thick enough unless you pay a fortune for them. Love the way you've used scraps to make something very pretty and useful.


Thanks for stopping by and for taking the time to comment on my post(s).
