On my hook...

Linking up with ChrissieGinnyTami and crochetaddictuk

The current state of my potholders...How sad is this? 
 I have a bad habit of leaving them too close to the eye. 
I may have actually started a small fire once...
Well I am happy to report, the old ones have been tossed, replaced by the following....
 I used Lily Sugar and Cream so they are nice and thick.

A size 3.5 hook 

pattern available at Made in K-Town Spring Mandala

Once I had the potholders sorted out it to time to get back to Valentine's Day decorations: 

Sunburst heart tutorial on Bunny Mummy  

Yarn wreath for my front door. 
 Another  hexagon for a candle

I am currently reading "The Letters of Vincent VanGogh"  It covers his last 25 years..everything from his religious beliefs, his mental states, attempts and failures at romantic relationships, a very special relationship with his brother and of course his inspiration for his art. 


  1. I absolutely love these! Those potholders look cooked it gives you a good excuse to crochet new ones. Love the Valentine's decorations very inspiring.

  2. What an improvement! I've just made some new dishcloths with the Sugar n' Cream, the old ones looked rather similar to your potholders...and your Valentine decorations are so lovely!!! Chrissie x

  3. Such beautiful and stunning Pot holders in lovely vibrant colours. I love your little hearts they are brilliant.

  4. Gorgeous heart bunting and I love the star too x
