Hooray! I was able to get together with the cupcake girls last week.
We made potholders! These are the potholders that I used to make as a girl. I still have my original red metal loom from the late 60's.
****After publication this morning, due to early interest, here is a website that carries good, sturdy looms and cotton loops for making these wonderful potholders. Have fun!**** http://www.kitkraft.biz/home.php?cat=214&gclid=CPacnuHoy6gCFaNd5QodDR3rpA
They are still my favorite potholders to use. They sit patiently atop a covered pot, have a nice grip for carrying pots and they also make great trivets.
We started with a little sustenance. Jill made these beautiful homemade lemon and poppy seed scones. They tasted as good as they looked.
Nothing pleases me more than a kitchen table covered with crafts.
Here is one that Susan was working on.
And one that I made.
This was my favorite on the day. Jill's potholder looks like a four patch.
For lunch I decided to make junk food. Hot Dogs with Saurkraut, Sweet Potato Waffle Fries and Root Beer Floats for dessert.
Carnival food is one of my favorite things. If it's sold out of a brightly colored wagon, I love it.
Coco exhausted herself by jumping all over the girls when they arrived and then stealing a tiny chocolate bunny from Jill. What a dogs life.
Still busy with 2 projects that I can't share yet. I did go to a local quilt show and I'll share the photos later this week.
Have a great week!
