Lime Green Goddess Potholder Pants

Potholder pants

I was just about to walk out of the thrift store in Bellows Falls empty handed,  when the woman working there told me all the clothes on the rack in the back of the store were a quarter.   A few minutes later, I left with a bag full of clothes, a couple for me but most for potholders.

When I thought the lime green cotton pants with the beads and embroidery ( I have a nice collection of machine embroidered fabric that I’ll someday do something with)  were $4 I passed them up (they actually would have been a good buy for $4, I’ll probably get 6 potholders out of them) but for a quarter…..It’s funny how when I go into a thrift store, $4 suddenly seems like alot of money for a pair of pants.  Where do these ideas come from and why I hold onto them, even though I know they don’t make any sense?

Anyway, I made 10 Goddess potholders today (they’re not actually finished, but the stitching is done) for the Anointing the Goddess show.  The blue and orange thread on the lime green (pants) looks like candy to me. If this or any of the other potholders I make don’t sell at the show, they’ll be available on my website after June 24th.

There’s still time to win a free pack of Jon’s Bartleby Notecards.  I’ll be posting the winner at 9am tomorrow.

  1. I LOVE that design! You are such an artist with that stitchery! I’m hoping this one doesn’t sell so I can buy it online! 🙂 Well….I hope for YOUR sake that it sells….. 🙂 And I’m sure it will! Can I just buy it now!?? 🙂

    1. Sorry, Sheryl, if I start selling them now, I’ll won’t have enough for the show. But thanks for the encouragement and I’ll be making more to sell on line again soon.

  2. Thanks for the chance to win some sweet black lamb cards! I have quite a few black lambs this year. It’s interesting to see how their coloring changes as they age (most turn gray, getting a little lighter every year).

  3. I like your work. Jon has mentioned in his blog how he cooks and I also happily take on the domestic chores that many of my male co-workers tease me about. (of course they eat up the pies I bring in) I would like to see you make a potholder or two for your male readers who also cook. I would jump at a “Simon says” set or a “Two Asses” series.

  4. Yes! Please! Post what you don’t sell….I need (WANT!) more! Give a few as gifts and keep the rest for me 🙂 🙂
    They are just so cool!

  5. It does look like candy, kind of like the Valentine hearts with words on them! Great color! I really like this one, the pose makes me think of the dance-exercise class I’ve been taking recently, where I can really let my creative non-verbal side loose. Very healing!

  6. I love the lime potholder that you made yesterday, how clever and unique you are. I would be so proud to win Jons notecards, both of you are so amazing to me.

  7. I would love to win a pack of Bartleby notecards. When I was a young girl, my grandfather gave me a black lamb of my very own at his west Texas ranch. I didn’t get to see it much, because I lived in Calif. and only got to go to the ranch during summers. I am 74 now and those memories of my times on the ranch are some of the best in my life!

  8. Hello. I would love to be entered to win the Bartleby notecards.

    Also love the potholder!!! Simply perfect!

  9. Ha! I thought I was the only one not wanting to spend $4.00 on something from the thrift store!! Love the green pants!
