I have about 70 potholders made for Plaid Friday (aka Black Friday, aka the day after Thanksgiving, aka November 29th). I knew today I’d be making more, time is running out if I want to reach my goal of 100 potholders. Next week is the last week for Kim to sew them together so I have to get the rest to her by then.
Luckily, today I was inspired. Those elephants, which were given to me months ago and have been hanging over my cabinet door (where I hang my fabric that I know I’ll be using for something special) finally spoke to me. I’ve tried before to get the right colors to make those elephant potholders, but it didn’t happen till this morning. And once I got the right fabric, I couldn’t stop. Fifteen, I designed 15 potholders today. I think that’s a record. All the colors worked, but it was the red that made them sing.
So if you’re a lucky elephant fan, come back on Friday November 29th when they’ll all be for sale right here. I’ll have 85 other potholder to choose from too, so if elephants aren’t your thing, maybe something else will grab your attention.
