Since I'm a relatively new reader to Malka's blog, I wasn't there in time to sign up for her pot holder swap. DRAT! But I was really inspired by her pot holders and thought that making a few might kill several birds with one stone!
Not only would these guys provide me with gifts for family and friends, they would also reduce my stash AND possibly aid in what seems to be an ongoing cold spell in quilting creativity.
I like this little guy! Here's his backside
He was a lot of fun to create and I've learned a lot, so I'll be making more!
On the gardening front, my Baptisia are growing by leaps and bounds, considering they hadn't even broken ground a little over a week ago
can you see the buds? They will be glorious in a week or two! And don't you love their Spring greenery!

Here's how I found my dye pots this morning

........................but what's this?????
these little guys seem to be attracted to my lighter fabrics. I don't know what they are: they look like ticks but they're not, thank heavens! Fortunately they don't spot the fabric, but they look gross and I don't like them! Oh well: into each life.................!
I had a great afternoon in the dye studio, and hope to have lots of pictures to share tomorrow, so stay tuned! Hope you had a great day too.
