I got into the potholder making rhythm yesterday, but it was interrupted because I worked at the Cambridge Co-op in the afternoon for my monthly 3 3/4 hour shift. But the potholders were still on my mind, so after dinner I was back in the studio, making more.
I worked till I was tired. At the end of the day, I had a good batch of new potholders designed. Don’t know if I’ll make anymore right now. I’ll have to see how I feel.
I’ll get these finished by early next week no matter how many more I do or don’t make and have them for sale in my Etsy Shop then.
Rachel left me a comment saying that the drawings on the fabric looked like Charley Harper. So I googled him and I think she’s right. Born in 1922, Harper was an artist and a conservationist. And his work is still being reproduced in lots of different mediums.
I did find the image of the squirrel being attacked by the birds an interesting one. Now I understand that Harper was concerned with depicting the natural world and often with humor.

Squirrels and chipmunks steal and eat birds’ eggs!
I read that Harper was a great observer of birds. His drawings, though whimsical are apparently very accurate in essence.
