Potholders – Using up More Leftovers

The potholders I’ve been using for years were made for me by my granddaughter on a weaving loom; the same thing I used to make potholders when I was a kid. Remember those? Unfortunately the potholders she gave me were well used, and by that I mean permanently stained. They had reached the end of… Continue reading Potholders – Using up More Leftovers

First of all I finally completed the Granny Tree Skirt I started 2 years ago. It was love at first sight the moment I… Continue reading Crochet Christmas Projects
