The yellow Rose petal Pot Holder.
And this pink and white one that I can't think of a clever name for (suggestions welcome). It turned out a bit flimsy, so I crocheted a thicker back for it too.
I'm not thrilled with how it turned out, but I think it'll fit right in on the ever growing pot holder wall collection. I just have to decide which side to hang it.
I started to think about my New Year's resolutions yesterday. Every year I write some down and then put them away. A year later I dig them out, only to discover that I haven't really made an effort to resolve any of them.
So yesterday I decided to tackle number one for the past two years; Make myself a piece of clothing.
I grabbed a sheet from the stash and drew a front and a back of a top that vaguely resembled the one I was wearing, and then cut it out.
I stitched it together and then tried it on, cut some off, stitched it back together and then tried it on again.
I fiddled around with the elastic and made several more modifications and then wear tested it for the afternoon to make sure it was comfortable and covered my bra and didn't itch or creep.
I plan to make another of these tops tomorrow or the next day, then sew the trim to the neckline and then I'll cross number one off my list.
Hows great would that be, a resolution in the first week of the new year?
I hope you are still feeling the new year optimism.
