Our long distance relping friend, Ileah, has been crocheting potholders to keep her nimble fingers busy. The lady also does bobbin lace, weaves, spins, and knits... you can see why she qualifies as a relper! I love the potholders and find them almost too pretty to be used.
The blue on the left makes me think of Delftware. The pink is like a peony blossom. The green at top is very tranquil and the multi-hued at right reminds me of grandmother's apron. The green at the bottom is my favorite - like the forests and fields of Oregon.
