Christmas Through the Year - June

6 months down and 6 months to go and if it weren't for Darlene and Cheryl cheering me on each month, I would have an empty Christmas box and  come Christmas, hyperventilating would be involved. So thanks to both of you, there will be no breathing into paper bags.

Last month I was excited when my name was chosen as the May winner and a few days later, this cute package arrived:

The embroidery is just too cute :

and I love the fabric on the dish towel which is huge! I haven't had the courage to use it yet, but it's hanging in my kitchen and I can't help but smile every time I see it. I'm going to share the pretty red utensils with college girl...maybe. Thank you so much!

This month I was once again stitching more potholders from Wedding Dress Blue's tutorial she shared last year. I made lots for gifts last year and I don't think I shared them:

I made these for my college roommate:

And these for my friend who lives on the neighboring ranch:

And this set went to a Texas friend who lives on a ranch south of us:

And this pair went to a dear friend in Michigan:

These went to a bloggy friend:

I made these for my MIL:

and these go into my Christmas box for this year:

And I'll be making more. So hop on over to Darlene's  and see what everyone else made for Christmas in June!

They all look so good, your binding is so precise, I am soo jealous.

Wow! You have been so busy with pot holders! That is quite an assortment. Very cheerful, every one of them!

Way to stay on top of things! And your sweet little winnings were lots of fun! AND...breathing into paper bags isn't lots of fun. LOL! :)

Oh, your potholders continue to amaze! They are so nice. It makes me want to make a few more myself.
