Microwave bowl Pot holders

I think these are the neatest things.
They keep you hands from being too hot when taking something out of the microwave as well as keeping them warm when eating ice cream.
They are even reversible. 
I have a few sets of these cut out.
DD wants more for our kitchen.

Prairie Moon Organization Challenge

The Challenge this week is:

Clean out a drawer or shelf.

I have some crafty drawers that could use help, but it would
make a bigger mess right now.
I think I am going to do a shelf instead.
I have a habit of sticking patterns between books when I get done.
I need to put them inside a binder to make it neater.

What am I working on?

Dazzle needs quilting now.Quilty Fun BOM is coming along.  I'm caught up
This Jo's Club is a modification and I think I'm going to modify it more to see if I can make it larger
This is a modification of Gypsy Rose. I am using fall type of colors. I just need some focus time to make it work.

Other things are graduation gifts and wedding gifts.  I truly need to spend some time in my study and focus.

Vacation time didn't allow me to finish anything.
Then, I've not been motivated since I've been home.

Then there was an estate sale I was asked to go to for QOV and I bought fabric.

Guess that means I need to sew more.

Quilty Fun

Finished another set of the blocks.
Those 4 patches in the center

Casserole cover

Finally got it done!
Ever have one of those days when nothing goes right?
That was today.
I did finally get it done and it should be usable.

gloomy day

We have had rain all morning long.
It's a very gloomy day.
So, I decided to make the Christmas casserole cover.
I can not say that I like this process.
I makes my eyes cross.  LOL
I suppose if I were to make a number of them, they would go quicker.
I am having trouble with measurements this morning/afternoon.
But, I think I've got it.
Now to find some velcro.
