    Bought these two with my gift cards today at Barnes and Noble.

    Pretty Little Potholders is a great book that was recommended to me for making potholders. I am liking the projects so far as I flip through the book.

    Quilting For Peace: Make the world a better place one stitch at a time is an awesome book that the same friend recommended that I get. It has some great charities in it that you can send quilt blocks or quilts too.

    I know that many of you on here donate quilts to local charities already but I just thought there might be some on here who could use this book as much as I can. :)

    Hope, Love and Peace for the 2010!~

    Both great looking books! My wife has a potholder book that I really like as well, I made several from it. Enjoy! :D

    I've had Pretty Little Potholders out from the library. I really liked some of the ideas in it. I haven't seen the Quilting for Peace book yet, but it looks intriguing.

    great books, henry. i'll have to check those out. do you use the special heat resistant batting for the pot holders? haven't seen any but i guess you can get it at quilt shops??
    can't wait to see what you have done.

    Connecting Thread had it for $12. But I bought mine at Barnes and Noble so I paid $19 for it.

    Yes I do use that if I will be using them to cook with. If not I just use regular batting and I stitch a small x in the corner so I know it doesn't have the heat resistant batting in it.
