Saturday is my day off, I usually don’t go online at all. But last night as I sat in the living room, my laptop on my knees, the wood stoves ticking and clicking, Fate and Bud sleeping nearby, a daze crept over me.
I took pictures of the Potholders I made after it got dark and the colors were way off. When I posted the video I took of my ramshorn snail, something went wrong and my snail slid along at a pace slow even to a snail. Then I mistakenly deleted the one good picture I had taken in the morning of Fate with the sheep (the morning sun gave the sheep halos).
I guess I was tired. From the day and from the week.
So I wrote about our Solstice Fire and shut down my computer for the night.
This morning after a good nights sleep and an egg sandwich with homefries at The Country Gals Diner in town, I was ready to take more pictures and write.
After making my Longest Night Potholders yesterday, I picked up a pile of scraps that have been on my desk long enough that I don’t remember where they came from.
Like having all the pieces to a Jigsaw Puzzle, I started sewing them together. Although I must admit I did cheat when I ran out of fabric and scoured my scrap bin for more.
I’m calling these my Winter Scraps Potholders, made with joy on the first day of winter.
I hope to have all these potholders done by the end the week. Some are already sold, but those that aren’t will be for sale in my Etsy Shop. I know that putting up potholders for sale in the first days after Christmas isn’t the best timing. But they will be there when someone is in need of a Potholder for themselves or for a gift.
Anyway, I had little choice in making them when I did. They demanded it.
