Seems like all I could do today was make Minnie at the window potholders. I made seven of them, each one a little different, the ideas flowing like the curtains. Then Jon called in the middle of it all. “I have an idea for a potholder” he said. Sceptical, as I always am when given an idea for my work, he said, “Minnie wants to be free”. Sometimes I think ideas are in the air and we just pluck the out or not. It was really what I had been doing, only I didn’t think of it in those words. Then Jon told me the words were mine, I said them to him a couple of days ago.
So that’s what I did today, started my series of “Minnie wants to be free” potholders. I’ll give them to Kim to finish up (with plaid backings) and they will all be for sale on Plaid Friday.
