Little things...

I had made this experimental pineapple block...and it has laid in there in drawer for a few months.  I wanted to sew, but couldn't make up my mind what I wanted to sew.  So I pulled it out and made this potholder.

Then, still being in the mood to sew, I did another potholder:
 It is one of a kind...I drew the chicken and I don't think I kept the pattern.  But I should look and see if I can find the paper from the fusible.  Now that it is made, I am not happy with the hen fabric....but, it was still sort of fun to make.  For it's back I used denim from a heavy pair of jeans.  It isn't much but it soothes the soul to sew a little bit.

I feel kind of at odds with myself if I don't have a project of some kind going on. Right now I am crocheting boot cuffs, but still itching to get back to hand embroidery.

Agreed. A little bit of sewing always soothes the soul.

I have a similar pot holder (?) like the first one . I got 2 in a swap. She called them 'Mug Rug' but they are the size of a pot holder but too thin for one. Nicely quilted. the Chicken one is nice and farmy.

Pretty pot holders. How I wish I have the patience to sew these. I only do simple sewing.

The chicken fabric is just fine. I love the idea of denim for the back.
Ironically just this week I came across my book of potholder patterns and marked it down for my retirement projects.

I love these. My grandma taught me to sew and it always gave me great pleasure. I have essential tremor in my hands/upper torso now so I can't sew, but I still love to look at fabrics!

it does sooth the soul. I love it , it calms and relaxes you, Tommy doesn't understand and asks me why do you do that all the time?

Your pot holders are just the cutest ever. These last days I have been making pin cushions and having the best time. I can do them entirely by hand here in the bed.

I like the colours in the pineapple block and I very much like the hen potholder. I would be afraid to use them and get them dirty!
