Yesterday I popped my Great Cover Up swap items in the mail to my partner. It included the Charley Harper Sewing Machine Cover I've posted about a couple of times before and
I am also participating Potholder Pass 7. Apparently, many swappers have enough pot holders, and perhaps I would too if I had been participating from the beginning, but I have only done one round before this one. If you could see my collection of ancient and aging pot holders, you would see that they are sorely in need of replacement. They are all stained, burned, and/or aging. I received 2 new pot holders with the last swap, and they were welcome additions to my sad collection.
My partner for this round must have very similar kitchen decor to mine, as the colors she selected would have made themselves at home very nicely in my kitchen.
The theme was "anything but square", so I made a more-or-less hexagonal pot holder, which is a modification of a Dear Jane block I found here
Emily's tutorial on The Boy Trifecta blog. Such a great idea.
I also opted to swap market totes, and I used a modification of Keyka Lou's Market Bag pattern. It's reversible, and so very versatile.
Lots of fun for me. I really hope my partners enjoy them.
