Thanks to Deb
for inspiring me to make some of those great potholders she made! I got a few sets done for gifts but I totally cheated!! I came to the realization that there is NO way Im going to have time to crochet all the washclothes for them, so I picked up a 6 pack of good quality terry towel dishclothes and made them with those instead. I used the silver thermal liner inside to keep food warm, and used only 2 colors, quilted it & used co-ordinating ribbon loops. Not too bad for 20 minutes a pair!
I cant believe its almost December already! Time is just flying by lately. Quick Shop update:
anyone looking for a beautiful Vintage Christmas tablecloth & runner? I just updated the Etsy shop
with this fantastic simple clean design one above. It fits a rectangular table & I just love it! Also the vintage crewelwork poinsettia wallhanging below (sorry for bad lighting buts its major winter here) will be up for sale over at www.glitterandgrunge.com
on December 1st. Im featured under "Glitter" artists.
Working on a couple more projects, if I can get some energy, I seem to be fighting a real yucky cold. I should probably get some major Holiday baking done today...but im running out of room in my outdoor deepfreeze. I might have to get another one, mines all jam-packed with veggies from the garden that I cant get to anyways! Its -23 degrees today!!! I just run out there, lift the lid, squeal in pain, slam it down, run back in & curl up in front of the fireplace! Yikes its nippy-sunny & beautiful though!
And out this weekend- The Nativity Story!!! Yes! Im definiatly taking the kids at some point this weekend, talk about a good family movie & perfect for getting into that holiday spirit!
