    I put aside the quilt I am working on (string quilt) and made a set of placemats and some tissue holders today! Something different to take a break...also cleaned my poor neglected house this morning too! LOL

    Those are really pretty. Looks like you've been busy. I guess the housework needs to be done (inbetween quilting anyway). :D Do you have a pattern for the little tissue holder? Those look like they'd be neat to have.

    Thanks Pam! I hit submit a little too quick when I put the link up for those tissue holders! LOL

    I still have to send them my dollar! I made 8 of them in 25 minutes Christmas Eve day..... didn't have to rush so fast with this group of 8 tho! LOL

    Love the placemats and tissueholders, really like the green in them. another great job :D

    Spent a lot of time there looking at the ugly quilt contest, the huge pic of stashes and funny signs. I now have tears of laughter in my eyes :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

    Thanks Patsy. I'll make a copy & send a dollar. Sounds like the donation money goes to a good place. :D

    Country Quilter,
    Thanks for the link to this wonderful website. I spent wayyyy too much time there! Now I feel inspired to make something to donate to Leader Dogs for the Blind. The dogs cost 10's of thousands of $ to train but there is never a charge to the person receiving the dog, so it is a really great cause.
    And not to to forget your projects- they are really lovely.

    I love the placemats and tissue holders. I just ordered a binder attachment for my sewing machine but now I can't figure out how to set it up. I bought one specifically for my machine through Sears. Can anyone help me? I would like to make some potholders for my family, friends and church kitchen. I'm just a beginner who is not a spring chicken but I love to make useful things. :?:

    I love that tissue holder pattern. Started using it last year and have made so many of them. They're great for a quick little "thinking of you"l. Love to make them in school colors/fabric.
