Do all my lines meet up correctly? No, but I still like it. I am not strong in sewing, so I probably should have picked an easier square to start with, but I wanted to start from the beginning of the book I am using and work my way through. This is the first square in the book.
Here is the second potholder top. This one lines up a bit better. This will be one set of potholders. Haven't decided what embroidery to put on it. I will probably choose a lovely brown as the backing.
Here is the book I am using. I love the different squares in here. It doesn't give you templates, you make your own from the picture. My square are a bit bigger than in the book so they'll be large enough to be potholders, so I use the picture and sketch it out on graph paper for the size I want.

On a lovely side note, the husband completely surprised me by getting me the digital camcorder I wanted. I totally believed the book thing, because he hates gift shopping. What a lovely surprise! :)
The battery is charging and my Update on Tuesday will be recorded with this!
