Karen's Potholders

Potholders for Karen
At last something recently made, finished just hours ago actually.   I made these cute potholders to give to a sweet girlfriend to say thankyou for having my son to stay last weekend.  She breeds Miniature Fox Terriers so the picture is particularly relevant to her.  I have made so many potholders over the recent years.  Everyone just loves to receive them as everyone needs them and they really like to use something that is made just for them.

It is a great day today.  I went to the dentist (no that is not why it is a great day).  He is a lovely guy.  Last year his four daughters were the recipients of four quilts from "Quilts for Keeps", a charity based at the major children's hopsital in Sydney, to donate quilts to children who are diagnosed with serious illness and their siblings.  He found out that my quilt group and I make and donate quilts for "Quilts for Keeps" and I flippantly said if at any time he felt like donating some cash to the cause we wouldbe happy to spend it on batting or fabric and today he told me he would  be writing a cheque for $500 for us!  Yahoo!!!  That is a lot of batting!  We need to have a couple of working bees to make another batch of quilts so we will be on a roll now! Yippee!!!!
