Hope that you had a wonderful weekend and thank you so much for the lovely comments on the vintage pot holders and book.
Well, I finished the rose pot holder and I am lovin' how it turned out!! The pretty red and mint green were the perfect match.
It took me a couple days to finish, as I worked on it in the evenings, and the end result was worth every little stitch. I have truly gained such an appreciation for the amazing ladies who made all the vintage ones I have collected.
I think the back took longer then the front, and I had to change the pattern a little to make the edging cleaner. I am even thinking scallops would look so pretty, too!
I am already working on a pink one, and plan to do a few more colors. I also want to try some of other patterns from the book, too. And, you may even see some of these pot holders soon in my shoppe, so stay tuned!
Now it is hung in a vintage green frame and bringing some handmade prettiness to my home.
With Valentine's Day approaching, I have been working on some pretty hearts. I crocheted these using this lovely pattern, and I am adding some cross stitching to them.
And, some pretty felt hearts with some sweet fabrics that need a little hand stitching and will be made into ornaments. Are you working on any pretties for Valentine's Day?
Wishing you all a most lovely and creative week!
