    Cute potholder! I'd be afraid to use it & get it stained.

    Nice assortment of fabrics, DublB ... for a well chosen block pattern.
    Then a true Texan backing!

    I'm with TBug ... cute, but would give it a place of honour to keep it looking nice!



    So who has another Patriotic Project in the works?
    Please do tell us ... maybe even some WIP pics?

    Hey Jennie! I have missed ya too! How are ya doin'? & What are ya up ta?
    I just got back from a retreat & am very tired!
    I'm so glad that everybody likes my pot holder. It is in Brady & will be used when we are there. It took a bit ta convince DH ta use my potholders, but he does now. (He is the cook.)

    A bit of news: Canada D'Eh is in a local quilt store window for Canada Day. The previous owner of the shop designed the pattern so they still sell the pattern. The store made their version, which sticks close to the original. My version uses the pattern as inspiration. So, their version is in one window and mine in another.

    I am so excited. This is a first for me! That, and the new Janome 8900 my husband and myself treated me to recently, gives me incentive to quilt Something Patriotic sooner rather than later. The store carries the O Canada line of fabric so, maybe they will display SP next year. But, I'm getting ahead of myself.

    Pictures to follow soon.

    Is anyone working on something patriotic of their own these days?

    I bought a TX pillow panel & gave half o' it ta a DF o' mine. (I didn't 2 o' the same Texas. ) I was gonna put a border on it & then use flannel as backin' & no battin', but I think that I'll just turn the edges down & pin it ta the wall until I git around ta plan A.

    That's absolutely great news, W4Me!
    I'll look forward to seeing the pics .... of yours and the original version!
    How impressive that your work is being shown!!!!!!!

    No patriotic work right now ... though I keep looking at the O Canada piece from last year (the stripey/print) and thinking it should become some sort of a tote! So I am sure that will be my next patriotic project!!

    Thanks QuiltE. It may be commonplace for others on the board but my work never gets shown so it is a big deal for me. Plus, I am really proud of how I combined cross stitch into the quilt.

    I'd love to see a tote from O Canada fabric. We all need more shopping bags, don't we?

    You're Welcome W4Me ............ And a bigger deal that yours is being shown in an LQS! That's impressive to make "that" cut! So often they do not show any work, other than their own, so huge congratulations to you!! Your inclusion of another technique is special too, as many keep the lines between quite separate. BTW do they sell cross stitch supplies too? So a double sale promo for them.

    Oh surrrrrre ... nudge me to another project, when I already have a gazillion on the go!
    Yes ... we all need more FART bags!

    Thanks for being such a great cheerleader QuiltE. It didn't occur to me but, yes, the store recently started selling floss. Not sure about other supplies though.

    You finish your projects so another one isn't an issue. Mind you, don't I hear Miss Peep weeping way off in the distance? Top her staff with a Canadian flag and she can be on two threads instead of just one.
