Potholder Fun!

Some time ago I participated in a potholder swap hosted by Adrian at Hello Yarn and Maritza at Knotty Bits. What fun this was! We had to make five crocheted potholders in either cotton or wool, and we would receive five different potholders in return from the other swappers. Mine arrived in the mail the other day. Aren't they great?!

As you can see, I've made some changes to my blog's background. I still have to figure out a better text color, but all in all, this is the direction I wanted to go - something really earthy and Fall-like --- my favorite time of year. The great folks over at The Cutest Blog on The Block helped me again. Alicia Alee Design did the backgound - she is quite talented!

Mr. Squash and I are leaving tomorrow for the Squash House! We're spending the entire week there through the 4th! I'll have my netbook along and hope to be able to keep up as well as post. We're going to do some fly fishing, working in the yard, and a lot of just plain kicking back in the sun☼! (Thanks, Anne, for the great link to symbols!) The park down the street from us does an incredible July 4th celebration which we're really excited to see!

Have a nice time at the Squash House! The potholders are fun; the blue and white one reminds me of my grandmother's kitchen.

What neat little potholders. Are you going to hang them in your new kitchen? I have seen several at a antique store. Didn't buy them but they were kind of neat.
Enjoy your week at the Squash House.

The pot holders are really cute. I need to find a place to display a collection. Have fun this week. I'll be gone next week. We are going to get some fishing time in at my sister's ranch.
