Made by pals

Potholders on displayMy feet were too sore and it was SO late when I got home last night (after 11:00) I took yesterday off from blogging. WHOA. A mid-week day off from the blog? Not usually how I roll, but last night I made the exception. And I didn’t take a single photo at the portfolio show, either. I was too busy chatting and shmoozing. I’m actually getting better at that stuff. Networking! It’s happening.

I sorted things so I’d have today off. Thank goodness. The laundry was practically up to the ceiling and the tomatoes really needed picking. I also needed to pick up a turkey (DONE!) for the weekend. Thanksgiving is this weekend. YES! A long weekend! Due to the nature of event & party planning, I have been longing for Faturday. Oh, sweet pancakes. I will eat you on the weekend.

After I did the laundry and other assorted chores, I got to putting up my fancy potholder collection on my fancy reduced, recycled and reused organizers. Two of them!

They are made by the FAMOUS Denise of Thrifty By Design – my friend who loves the dump! Remember? She LOVES it!


These organizers are made from reclaimed wood with all sorts of awesome reused handles. My favourite ones are the glass ones. That big glass pull is a door knob. So. Dreamy. Thank you, Denise! I love them both!

My organizers are the perfect place to hang my fancy, never going to touch a drop of food potholder collection. Both these potholder sets were gifts from quilty pals. The Dresden Plates were made by Krista of Poppyprint for a Quilting Bee swap a couple of years ago. AND the flowery print in the centres? That’s designed by my pal, Happy Zombie. The banana potholders were a gift from Lysa. I inspired her to make a cup of banana juice for me on a potholder after I learned the hard way that putting a banana in the juicer gives you NOTHING. Not a single drop of banana juice to be had. SAD! But that’s okay! She made me one.

Our kitchen feels complete now and a little cozier. I do like my little kitchen.

In other news, Quilting Bee was AMAZING tonight.

Darlene's beautiful quilt top

We had excellent Show & Tell, 3 demonstrations of various sewing skills and prizes.

I won thread! And my friend Helen gave me enough pirate fabric to make a skirt! YES!

This has been a glorious day.
