Another finished potholder and some zippy pouches

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a nice weekend. It was a holiday weekend here in Canada. Unfortunately I had to work all weekend. I had Monday off though and did a bit of sewing. I finished my second potholder for Potholder Pass 3. I used more of the left over hst's from the modern siggy swap 1. I really love this one. I set the hst's in a star pattern. If you don't know yet....I LOVE STARS.  So this one is my favorite. I love the way the quilting looks too. If you are looking for inspiration to make potholders you need to go check out this flickr group. The potholders are just amazing.

I also decided to play with some of my scraps and made 2 little zippy pouches and two scrunchies. I really like them. I bought some essex linen/cotton blend material today and I'm going to make more of these little zippy pouches. I think they would make nice gifts. I really like these ones found here. So that's what I'm going to try to make the next time.

Well, I have to work midnight shift again tonight and tomorrow night, then I'm off for 5 days. Yeah!!!! I'm almost done quilting my Madeline quilt. Should be able to show you the finished quilt in the next day or so. It is turning out really great. I love it.

Hugs

They are much to lovely to use as potholders! I'd have to hang them on a wall. The zippy pouches are terrific. Love that fabric. Ann :-)
