And now for Something Completely Different

Great progress has been made on the solids quilt this week, but the photos pretty much look the same so I won't bore you with them.  I really doubted I'd get there but I managed to get the quilting finished!  Now I just have to bury the threads and bind it.  I may just make that January 31 deadline yet.

In the meantime, I keep this crochet project near the phone just to have something to do while chatting.  There were lots of phone calls this week and this was finished.  These are the most amazing pot holders/trivets ever.  They're something everyone in my family has grown up using and learning to make.  They're cotton and a double thickness so they really shield you from the heat.

With the left overs I have been making these little hexagons.  I figure in a decade or two I might have enough to make an afghan.  (Yes, I can't resist making use of any and all scraps.  It's just so fun looking back at them and remembering all the projects they were used for.)

Linked up with Freshly Pieced - WIP Wednesday, The Needle and Thread Network - WIP Wednesday, and Sew Fresh Quilts - Let's Bee Social.


  1. Those pot holders look amazing. Are they just single crochet? Ordinary cotton? I have not crocheted in years but those look amazing and very doable. Your afghan is coming along nicely, always great to have an ongoing project.

  2. Love your little crochet hexagons - a great project to keep near the telephone - Always moving forward : )

  3. I think a decade is a good span for a project. I'm finally putting together some granny squares that I started about a decade ago. ;P I really like the tricolor hexagons! What is the yarn that looks like three different color strands are woven together? Very pretty!

  4. Oh, please share the directions for the potholders!

  5. I too would love to make those pot holders. They look SO thick! Your hexie afghan is coming along beautifully!
