Becki sent me this picture of the potholder I made hanging on her refrigerator. I always love seeing my work hanging in its new home. My potholders feel like little messages of beauty I can send out into the world.
Some people, like Marjorie, put them to work. “I bought some potholders years ago that I still use and enjoy,” she wrote to me. I do love to hear that my potholders are durable and do good work.
I’m not sure if Becki will put hers to work in the same way, but there are many kinds of work that a piece of art can do.
My potholders are almost gone from my Etsy Shop, I guess it’s time to make more.
