Giveaway #1

I can't believe that my last post was my 200th.... To celebrate I thought it would be fun to host a couple of little handmade giveaway's.....I've been so inspired by lots of different people through blog-land over the past couple of years and recently I stumbled across this gorgeous blogger who's blog has inspired me to crochet a potholder for the 1st of my 2 giveaways....
All you have to do to is leave a comment and it could be yours. I'd love to hear what kind of potholders you use at your home, if any that is. I've always just used a tea towel but am seriously thinking that 1/2 a dozen or more little crochet/knitted ones are definitely on the to do list before the year is out...
Take Care :)
I'll draw the winner next Fri, 6th Nov....

  1. The potholders are lovely! I just buy the ones from the store. Nothing special, they just work!

    As a crafter, you would think I would have tons of them around the house.

  2. The potholder is gorgeous Jodie. Kate's are wonderful too arent they. I just those little cork boards for my hot stuff although Paul did once put something hot on the table like fish and chips once and the steam left a mark on it. I am hoping to find a way to remove it but havent as yet. I am sure your potholders will make lovely xmas gifts too.

  6. hey Jodie you know your potholder should come and live with my little collection. It is gorgeous and would look so good hanging around on the wall here. I keep making them but still use store bought tea towels for the actual pot holding. Congrats on the 200 posts by the way.

  8. That potholder is so cute! I just have bought ones too... but nice fabric ones... Robert Gordon ones. Having said that... they are filthy... and I have to soak them regularly!!! Congratulations on 200 posts!!

  14. Your potholder is beautiful! I was lucky enough to get a couple from my great grandmother. The rest I have picked up in antique shops. I have a unique way of displaying them - I have hung them on a ribbon "clothesline" with mini clothespins over my kitchen window as a valance. It makes me smile!

  17. Congratulations on 200 posts Jodie! Your crocheted pot holders are wonderful - I mainly use oven gloves. Looking forward to another 200 inspiring posts.

  18. Those are beautiful! I usually just use a store bought oven mitt. These would probably make me want to cook even more!

  19. Hi Jodie - Congrats on 200 posts!!!
    Having been reading your blog and Foxs Lane blog lately I started experimenting with washcloths and loving it - nearly instant gratification.
    Funny thing was, I read Foxs Lane blog before yours today and was thinking that maybe I should start experimenting with potholders too!!
    Coincidence or what - I even asked her what yarn she uses.
    At home I usually only use tea-towels - seems dull somehow now after browsing the blogs

  20. Oh Jodie, these are gorgeous.
    I'm getting hooked on knitted dish cloths so maybe pot holders could be next on my list......
    Congrats on the BIG 200 !!!

  23. Jodie, I have just discovered this beautiful blog thru girls wear blue too, and I have to say What A Delight!

    The potholder, absolutely fantastic, but to think you stretch your talents in every possible direction is just an inspiration. We're about to have bub#2 and I am hoping to take a lot of time off being a WAHM, and to know that you are mainly self-taught is just awe-some!

    Have a lovely week, and hope to see you over at my blog sometime - there should be pics by next week of the newbie and our son Ethan by then.
