More Potholders And a Few Little Birds, Too

My Holly Bazaar plans enjoyed an unexpected bonus when I discovered three unfinished Log Cabin potholders under a pile of fabric on my sewing table; all they needed was binding. Amazingly, they had been sitting there since this time last year just waiting to be finished (I think I had run out of time to bind them).

So, I whipped up one more with the strips that were still sitting there too. How I could work around them all year and not notice them is a small miracle because my table isn't that  large.

They are all finished now and bound for the bazaar.

I also finished a batch of blue birds and they look really cute sitting all together.

I embellished one with some embroidery and beads but wasn't that keen on it until the ribbon went on. He'll look sweet on a Christmas tree, I think. There is still a batch of red ones that need eyes and ribbons.

The Official Cookie Tester is quite taken with them so I think one might also find its way into his stocking....M

It all looks wonderful, Marie. Those potholders really caught my eye! So much Christmas fabric is dark, but these ones really sing. Good luck with them!
