A Pot Holder Crochet-A-Long!


Hi everyone!

Happy Wednesday!

My friend Lynne is hosting a FUN Pot Holder Crochet-A-Long for all us all to make this month!

She has a wonderful tutorial on her blog for us to follow.

I asked if I could make mine round as I had an idea in my head of what I wanted to try and she was so excited to give me the green light to crochet away! :)

This is what I came up with!

I love the retro colors and motif. 

To make it, I just made a lot of little circles and sewed them to a bigger circle to make this neat formation.

Speaking of circle formations, Archie curled up in my lap yesterday afternoon, and I had a pen and some paper nearby so I grabbed it and did a quick sketch of him for fun as he snored away. :)


Quick sketches are so amazing to me because they feel like they come out of nowhere. :)

I love to see what appears as they require no thought or planning.

Just relax and draw the shapes in front of you.

It always feels like a fresh breeze blowing in on a hot day. :)

What things do you do to relax and refresh you during the day?

Please tell us!

We would love to try them too!

I love your potholder. I have mine sitting next to me and plan on crocheting a few rows before work.

To rest and relax...I love to be home alone, reading, crafting and watching old movies.

What a cute potholder. Maybe you could do a tutorial for us novice crocheters.

The most relaxing things we do is nap on the couch and enjoy our walks. We love the sketch of Archee Barchee :)

Sometimes quick sketches turn out better than planned paintings!
