cozying up ....

It's time I shared some of the sewing that's been happening in the last few weeks.  Here are a few pix .....

 The egg cozies that match the tea cozy
are for home and the others are
for the cottage.

 We're rather abusive to pot holders so I made slipcovers 
for them - actually one set for the cottage and one
set for home ... these ones are for the cottage.
It was a good way to use up some scraps.
I made an envelope closure for them
to make it easy to slip off and on for washing. 

 And two more journal covers.  The top 
one has an inside pocket for a pen.

Lots of fun projects--I'll have to say, that's the first I've ever heard of slipcovers for potholder! You may just be starting a new trend, Kate :)
