Today's Potholders are a set I made as a gift for a very good friend of ours.  She loves the outdoors and her home reflects that.  The colors I picked were in the browns for the earth, blues for the sky, and yellow for the sun and flowers....

Here are the colors I used:

  • Dark Navy
  • Flax
  • Pewter
  • Autumn
  • Winter White
  • Hydrangea
  • Tiger Lily
  • Robin's Egg

The first one I made was the Large one...

Here is the second large one.....










and the first small one.....


and the last small one....

and now for the whole set together....

When she got them she took them to the kitchen right away, then gathered up her old ones and put them aside.... I think she likes them....
I must say I truly enjoy making things that people enjoy!

For the Cabin

Today I'm posting a set I made for our Cabin in Ga. I wanted it to have darker fall colors, and still be bright and fresh.

Here's what colors I used:

  • Willow
  • Leaf
  • Spice
  •  Pine
  • Orange
  • Yellow

With this first large one I tried a diagonal weave to see how it showed up all the way across.  But I can see it good in the Leaf color but it gets lost when it travels thru the multi colors part.  Oh will, now I know.

Second Large......

First Small..........

Second Small........

and the whole set together.








 I'm quit happy with the way they turned out and enjoyed using them right away. Hubby grabbed one of the small ones for his mug coaster.  Hmmmm.  On line I've seen little baby looms that are for Mug Rugs as there called.  I'll have to look into that next I guess.
