And then there were three...

Thanks so much everyone for your lovely comments on my new Poncho pattern.  I'm so excited to see that some of you have already made a start and it's great to see the fabulous colour choices you're selecting.  I can't wait to see the finished ponchos in all their glory.

For my part, I'm feeling a little like I did this time last week.  You know, that 'catching up after the holidays' feeling?  My Little Miss was off school last week so my plans to get back on top took a little set back while we regressed into holiday style sofa-slouchy-mode.  While that was great for the progress of my latest knitty project it hasn't really helped my productivity levels in any other area.

Still, there is always this week to tackle the job list and I do have something to show you.  I found these little things to be a nice Easter project.  Something quick that I could make head way with now and then, even when we were busy.  A couple more potholders to add to my fledgling 'wall of modern vintage potholders'.

 My colour choices are making my 'vintage' collection of potholders rather more modern than the recreation of a collection of old treasures that I'd originally imagined but I can't seem to resist the colourful shades for these designs.

So now my first pot holder, the flowery one has some little friends to hang with it and keep it company and has now magically transformed from a potholder strangely hanging on a wall for no reason, into an official collection.  Albeit a teeny tiny one.  I like how it's looking though and I've found plenty more patterns I want to try, so the collection will definitely be growing soon.

    Just catching up and I love both these and your lovely poncho pattern which I've just bought and is currently printing itself out! Can't wait to have little play around with colour combinations! I love the idea of a pot-holder wall - they are such fun to make and that's a lovely way to enjoy them. Have you seen the Drops flower pot-holder pattern? I'm sure you have loads of pot-holder patterns but just in case you're interested! It's a lovely one with a bit of three dimensionality to it. Hope your little one is back to herself. E x

  11. They're really pretty and I love how they all look grouped together on the wall. Something like that would really brighten up my kitchen.

  14. Beautiful work, they look lovely together. I haven't got it together after the Easter holidays either, even though I seem to be rushing about a lot. But hey, there's always tomorrow.

  20. Definitely a lovely collection now, Sandra! You are right, the candy colours really bring these vintage patterns up to date - I love all of them! But my youngest girl has just peeped over my shoulder and squealed, "Love heart!" So guess which one I'll be making? :-) Can't wait to see what you make next...Chrissie x

  28. I could have sworn I'd left a comment here ... I don't think Disquis likes me, it eats my words! Was trying to share how retro I thought the square and triangle colour palettes are. Lovely :)
