I have made the potholder for myself, it is cute, pictures later. I love the hand pockets on the back.
Back to college girl, tomorrow is family day at my oldest daughter's university. I can't wait to see her, she was home over Labor Day but that was almost a month ago. Yes, I am counting. This is her second year at school and she is an apartment dweller this year. The two girls have fixed it up so cute and I wanted to bring her a surprise. I made the placemats from Amy's book, they turn out beautifully. I did find them quite large - 16" wide and 20" long. I put my dinner plate on the placemat and my dinner plate looked like a luncheon plate. I trimmed the placemat down to 14" and liked this proportion quite a bit. Plus college girl has a small table and I am hoping all four will fit with the smaller size. Her kitchen is red, blacks and whites with splashes of yellow and turquoise. Very cute and all that color helps the white walls of the kitchen. Her dishes are red Fiestaware.
I didn't have any white plates to "set" a table but added my thrift milk glass. I think the colors are fun and funky for my daughter's more contemporary taste. To add to her kitchen set my twin daughters made their sister a potholder each. Pretty proud mom moment!
Okay, blogger is only letting me upload these two pictures, I will have to post the other potholder tomorrow. I am taking my camera, hoping college girl's apartment is clean and neat, I need some pictures of her very cute first place.
