Inspired to try to use up some of the leftovers from the unwanted wall hanging I blogged about yesterday, I made a couple of potholders while watching the Olympics on TV last night.
I've always enjoyed the Winter Olympics more than those that take place in the summer. The men's downhill skiing last night enthralled me as I stitched away. (Once I commented to a good friend, "In my next life, I'm going to be an Olympic downhill skier." She gave me a quizzical look with her head tilted to one side and said, "But . . . you're not even a good downhill skier now." I don't know why she had to look at it so logically. Ya gotta love true friends for telling it like it is.)
I didn't use a traditional block pattern for these . . .
. . . I just threw things together for both sides.
As for the wall quilt I talked about yesterday that I was going to dump, one of my quilting blog buddies, Beth of Love Laugh Quilt, gave me the inspiration to make it into a doll quilt. The wall hanging is only about 15-1/2" x 16-1/2" so I think I'll add a wider border top and bottom to give it better proportions and finish it up as a doll quilt to give at Easter time to a very special little toddler.
I feel much, much better about that than dumping it. Best of all, it will be out of my UFO box!
