Chickenbetty's Disc-Disc Potholder

I am still having problems loading my photos and even TAKING photos, but managed to take a picture of my newest potholder with my cell phone camera this morning! These pictures aren't good quality, but at least you can see what I have worked on. I found this pattern on Ravelry the other night. I ordered it from ChickenBetty, but it didn't get e-mailed to me till the next day, so I looked at photos and copied it as best I could. By the time the pattern came, I already had the flower side done, so I just followed the pattern for the second side. One person on Ravelry mentioned that she nearly burned herself using it as a potholder, so I inserted hot pad material from the fabric store in between the crocheted discs. It is a little thick, but at least no one should get burned using it. I have also crocheted a couple of other things, but I'm not quite done with them yet. Two are potholders also, and one is a washcloth. Hope to have my camera up and running soon so the photo quality will be better!

July 4, ribbons and bows

I am still having problems with my uploading of photos to blogger from my home computer, and now my digital camera seems to be on the fritz, too. July 4 weekend we went out on the lake in the boat, it was very quiet for a holiday! I think the public ramps haven't been open much this year, so only lake residents have been out and a lot of the residents are older in age (I guess this may be due to the lake being here for a long time). After going out on the lake for a couple of hours, we went to our niece's house and my oldest gs got to pop firecrackers with her children. I have been crocheting small items such as dishcloths, & potholders, but can't seem to get the photos to my blog. Oldest gs and son will be gone this weekend, so I might have more time to concentrate on figuring out the problem. I also have some beautiful hair bows I wanted to take photos of and show. My co-worker makes them to sell, and I bought some for my oldest gs' baby sister and also for my sister's granddaughter who is 3.
