Bright Potholders


Today I listed these in my TurtleTreasures shop. They are crocheted with cotton yarn and will brighten up your kitchen during this cold winter.
I'm excited about listing a few crocheted items. I learned sewing from my mom, and crocheting from my grandmother. It gave me a lot of pleasure to make the many granny square afghans for friends and family members as Christmas gifts when I was younger. As I got older, I got more involved with other crafts, but I always kept yarn and crochet hooks around. It is my comfort craft!!
Crochet has taken a new role in my life more recently. I belong to a crochet group in my church. We make prayer shawls and lap blankets for members of our congregation who have suffered a loss or are going through some health challenges of their own. This group consists of some wonderful ladies, and when I joined, a group of ladies laughing and crocheting was just what I needed in my life.
All crocheted items made with extra love!!
Blessings and Peace,
Jill

Jill, I love crochet, don't what I would do if I couldn't crochet. I have sent hats and scarves to an Indian School in S.Dakota, Women's Shelter, preemie babies in hospitals....a lot of good can be done with crochet. Comfort shawls and lap blankets sound like a beautiful blessing to those who receive them. :))
