I want to thank all of the participants (if I could, I would send all of you prizes because all the entries were fantastic) and hope you will come back to participate in the next round.
Fresh Off the Hooks
I talked about dyeing wool with Kool-Aid and this is what it looked like after another dunking in orange Kool-Aid-
I used this yarn, and another ball of already-dyed green yarn to make these summery citrus hot-pads. Each is green on one side, and orange on the other side.
The pattern for each side is adapted from a slice of summer from BitterSweet. Hannah has come up with many adorable patterns, and generously shares them at no cost- very sweet of her.
My modifications: After embroidering seeds on each orange/lime slice, I added a layer of batting between them for extra padding and sewed the two sides together using single crochet.
The hot-pads were a hostess gift for a dear friend of mine.
Guessing GameFinally, a guessing game. I visited this kitchen over the weekend, can you guess whose kitchen it is?
