Maria had nearly finished her vintage jug potholder when she arrived this morning and completed it during the day. It is double sided , cotton and the colours are great. It is a clever idea. It is a bit different and it looks really good.
There are free patterns for a jug and sugar bowl potholders on antique crochet patterns.
While Marina was away she was finding ways to keep up her weaving. One idea was to use an embroidery frame, warp it up and then use yarn oddments to create a nice woven fabric. The mini loom was a chance find in an op shop. It is so small but very handy . Marina had to repair it and that was all part of the mini weaving adventure while she was away. It really is a clever little loom. She made the fabric for the needle holder on it. This little loom is totally portable and a weave anywhere kind of loom.
