Another Set of Pot Holders

Lisa C. sent me these pictures of her latest project - made from my pot holder tutorial.

Apparently she's joined a Gift of the Month club and made these pot holders for one of her exchanges.

I'm sure it goes without saying that I am thrilled to pieces to find that people are making these pot holders and sending me their pictures. It's so nice when one life touches another. Thanks to everyone who has sent pictures or comments in, and if you are thinking about making these pot holders - get on it! Time's awasting!

Crochet Shenanigans

For Christmas, I crocheted my husband a brain.

Not because he doesn't already have one, but because his interests have turned toward the study of the brain and its functions. It's all pretty egg-heady to me.

Obviously, it's not anatomically correct. Nor is it the right color. But since it's a work of art, none of that matters.

And then suddenly, I was taken by the crochet fairies and had to make something else.

And here it is, modeled on some lovely young lady I know.
