Basketweave Potholders

Sorry I havent been here in a while.. have to take alot of breaks from the computer now.. as I have a pinched nerve in my left side of my back.. so that limits me sitting in chairs long.. sigh..

I just finished an order of Basketweave potholders.. this uses the same pattern I got for the basketweave dishclothes and then I added a solid back to it.. and edged it in two rows of single crochet.

Here are the pictures:

I now am working on some short orders that I got via Listia.. a baby headband, a catnip heart cat toy, and a lavender sachet.. pictures on those soon..

Craft store visit..

Last night, my friend, Diane and I went out shopping as I needed stuff for orders.. our first stop was The Christmas Tree Store.. hoping to find more Thanksgiving towels.. they had a few.. but the ones they had were too expensive.. so passed on them.. I did find some towels to use for Plastic Bag holders.. am hoping to start a couple next week..

Then we hit Joanne's.. they were having a yarn sale (25% off) plus an additional sale of 20% off your total order.. I got the yarn for my next two orders as well as 3D paint to use on the bottom of slippers so they grip the floor..

Then we went to Denny's.. for coffee.. happily.. they had pumpkin coffee.. and I also spurge and had pumpkin pancakes.. nice treat.  So in all.. it was a relaxing and successful evening.. Got home and just crocheted for a short while.. then hit the sack..

Sunday Update

Well.. this was a busy and stressful week for me.. alot of Dr appts.. and sick family members (including one of my favorite cats!)..still struggling to get things done.. it is hard when you just cant think..

I got a better picture of the Plastic Bag Holder that I made.. nice picture too. you can see how big it is.. it went over so well. that I will be making these for sale.. still deciding on a price.. this is made with a cotton dishtowel (though I also might use other kinds).. and edged in crochet for a hanger and a stretchy bottom to hold the bags in..

I currently am working on Potholders for an order.. this is using the pattern for the basketweave dishclothes. I will have pictures soon.. hopefully even as soon as Tuesday..
