Look what my friend Claudia from Houston sent me yesterday! Woo hoo! Am I scoring lately, or what?!!! This lady is absolutely very talented and creative!! The "Green Eggs and Ham" and the "Tropical Sunset" are both her own creations. I personally think one day soon we will be seeing her patterns in books and magazines!
As one of my friends mentioned, these remind her of the car commercial featuring a sock monkey who gets a "Mom" tattoo sewn on while having fun out on the town. :) I found this cute version of the Origami Hot Pad over at Violet VanderVool's project page and decided I "had" to make a couple for the twins. (AND yes, I'm going to say it) I had more fun than a barrell full of Monkeys making them!
The top photo is of all the potholders I have received so far in our swap. I am supposed to get two more soon. The next two photos are of my Mother's day "gifts" from my two children and 3 grandchildren. I got taken to lunch at my favorite Italian restaurant in North Richland Hills, TX called "Nicki's". LOVE that place! DD had decided my "old" digital camera was a dinosaur and gifted me with the new one (photo in middle). I still haven't sat down and played with it (as you can see I used "old dinosaur" to take these photos, LOL)!! I am still "potholder" obsessed and glad I am in a swap so I can crochet as many as I want and won't have them flowing out of every drawer in my kitchen! LOL!
The pattern for the Chicken Potholder pictured above can be found in a booklet called "The Ultimate Book of Potholders", issued by Annie's Attic. I recently found a free pattern online, here, that is very similar.
