Potholders and a tabletopper

This is all I finished up last week....My hook has slowed down a little.  Well maybe not is just feels that way.  If any of you have made potholders you know what I mean.  It seems like an awful lot of stitching and really not too much to show for it.  But I love the vintage potholders..these are mad with my DMC Cebelia thread..which by the way are available in my shop...these potholders should be used for decoration only as they are made with thread.  I don't think they would offer much protection from high temps.

The craft show is right around the corner...for those of you who like a good craft fair..then this in the one for you.  There are over 400 crafters..all crafts have to be handmade, nothing that is not handcrafted is allowed..Crafters come from all over the country.. I have had a display for the last 5 or 6 years and I have yet to see everything that is being shown..ok..here are some details....it is at the Vanderburgh 4h center (fairgrounds)...Evansville In... Sept 28 and 29..from 9-4....admission is $2.00 .  For more information

Anyway I hope you are all enjoying your Monday..I plan on it as soon as I get the laundry done,Blessings

You had me at Potholders! And yours are lovely, some very nice vintagey patterns..I have a few for my craft fair as well. They are for pretty not for using as the thread will not be a protectant. Good Luck on your show Vikki, you do beautiful work. I'm looking forward to my 1st one...so we'll see how that goes...:O!

Love your potholders! Many years ago I made a bunch of vintage-look potholders for my friends for Christmas. I think I need to get that pattern book out again one of these days. :)

Your potholders look wonderful !!:) I haven't made any potholders and don't use fabric or thread made either. If I make any potholder, I will call it a mini doily:) they look like mini doilies, don't they?
I have read about your craft fair on your posts earlier and I know you do very well there. Best wishes for your preparation !!:)
