...used to crochet a lot.
And among all the doilies, blankets, etc she would also crochet lovely pot holders.
The ones above I found in a thrift store - they need a good wash!
They remind me of when she would crochet in hot summer afternoons, under the parasol, in the garden.
And when she finished one she would go on with the same pattern/different colours for at least another
six or seven. Identical.
I first saw Anu Tuominen amazing work on Textile Forum Magazine a few years ago.
Maybe that's why I started collecting pot holders?
