I got up yesterday morning and made these two potholders for our dear friend Gloria Pineo who lives with her husband in San Leandro. We were meeting them for lunch yesterday and hadn't seen them in a long time, so I wanted to take her something that would remind her of our last visit. A couple years ago, Gloria and Jim came up to our house in Weimar and she poked through my fabric stash to find something that she would like so we could do a little quilting project together. I remembered how she loved the sunflowers. Below is a close up of the quilting detail. This was fast and fun and I enjoyed her excitement when she received them.

In April, I will be giving a small class for the young women from our Foresthill Branch, here at our home, to teach them how to make these simple pot holders. They will be able to make one for themselves and hopefully we will get several made for our Branch kitchen. That's the "service" part of this project.
If our young women are inspired by this project, I have many, many more fun things that we can sew and that they will delight in. Teach and Inspire the girl who will be come the woman and you teach and inspire generations! Thanks Mom!
