Pot Mitts and Sales

Friday was the big Amitie Sale and the poor staff had been on their toes for hours by the time I got there after work. I had 16 people coming for dinner but the sale had to happen first so I scooted out of school the minute I farewelled my last little one into the arms of her Mum.
I was on a mission to purchase some inexpensive backing fabric for a couple of quilts I am making for sale.
I was in luck with the perfect colours at 50% off to make bindings, borders and backs.
Dinner was pretty good too but that's another story.
Saturday was a big day out with visitors from overseas. We walked for hours. Brunswick Street, the city, Southbank, and more city. It was fun. 
I just got home in time to watch the Pies beat the Cats. (That's Australian for my football team beat the other guys!)
Today was for sewing.
Some unfinished business was finished.
Lots of potholders, somewhat chunky, are ready to go to market. I still have about 8 more to do. At this stage I am thinking in small quantities as I don't want to have as many potholders as I have toys all over my house!

Don't ask me how I put this set up. I have seen sets on other blogs but this was made in a most unorthodox way. Anyway some of the pot mitts are here. 
Hubby's shirt quilt is almost done too but photos will come later.


  1. Lovely stitching.
    But more importantly ... Go PIES!!

  2. You did well on the shopping front and how fun are those pot holders. When and where will you sell them?

  3. Cute, cute, cute! YOu have been busy using up scraps. I need to try some like this as I won't be able to come to market to get some of yours! Bummer! maybe next year! -)
