I got my potholders last week and have barely had time to photograph them much less use them (it's pretty bad when I have blog fodder for at least a week's worth of daily posts and they get spread out of three weeks, because I don't have time to write all of the posts... sad, so sad).
I got these lovely potholders / hotpads:
So pretty! I want to figure out how the petal one was sewn down and made so well, because that was the pattern I tried and then ripped all of them out! These are all gorgeous, and I have them hanging up next to my very plain aprons (where I will hopefully remember to use both the potholders and the aprons with greater regularity).
I wish that more of these had little labels on them, so I would know who to thank (other than the organizers, Adrian and Maritza). They might have put labels on and had them fall off. I know I was bad and I put my labels in the bag, but I was running out of time and couldn't find a pair of scissors to attach the labels to the potholders themselves.
The only one with a name label was the one from Terri at Purple and Paisley (this is the link to the other hotpads). Terri had some amazing quilts in progress! I love the idea of making a quilt, but mixing colors is not my strong suit! The flower hotpad has seen a fair amount of use, so I really appreciate it!
