My friend Marilou has a new green kitchen, but the potholder on display was blue and not in a good slanted way. I had fun digging through my scrap box and making a pot holder for her; she is funky and colorful, but Ron is less so (and he does a lot of kitchen work too), so I tried not to go overboard.
The value of such a small project, besides blessing a friend: 1. color play 2. using up scraps 3. practice quilting 4. and working with binding (I don't bother to cut it on the bias).
Eventually all my practicing might add up to a masterpiece. . .
I am a wife and mother of two. I am a stay-at-home mom, a Mennonite, and a city dweller. I like to make things (see the blog categories below). This blog is a record of what I make and the ways I try to be thrifty. Welcome!
"Thrift is the really romantic thing; economy is more romantic than extravagance...thrift is poetic because it is creative; waste is unpoetic because it is waste...if a man could undertake to make use of all the things in his dustbin, he would be a broader genius than Shakespeare."
