Working hard or hardly working?

 I have been "remodeling"  my blog and there are still parts that are a "work in progress" such as the new tabs at the top.  If you have any suggestions please let me know or if there is something you don't like or find difficult.
I've also been trying to join some groups that will not only make me feel accountable for some of my projects but also allow me to connect with other like-minded people. Now, if I could only find a group for staging and selling my house. Thanks to Ruth of Ruth's Little Leprechauns for exposing me to all these wonderful groups and for inspiring me to spruce up my blog. 
So, here I go for Finished Objects Friday and lo and behold, I have something!!!!!
This is a"double" potholder and/or trivet.  It is crocheted and the pattern is free on Ravelry as "The Best Crocheted Potholder" by Heather Tucker.  It is crocheted in such a way as to be double thick and really sturdy.  It's also very easy to crochet just a little harder on my arthritic hands but I muddled through...LOL!
I used Peaches and Creme cotton yarn that I can pick up at Wal-Mart.
 I have to include the pictures below because I thought it was so funny.....can you see the dachsund in this picture?  My little Annie sleeps in a chair in my bedroom.  She has a dog bed under there too but she gets cold so easily I cover her up with a blanket at night.  I think she gets cold because her little legs are only like 2 inches long and thus she's close to the ground where the cold air settles.

I know they have a way to get rid of "red eye" in photos but green eye????? LOL!
Have a great Friday everyone!


  1. I thought when I visited your blog yesterday you were changing it, I like it and is easy to read. Love the header pictures, I must learn how to do something like that. Last year I changed my blog background loads to suit seasons and celebrations and it was fun, not sure this year what I'll do with it, I'm liking it as it is at the moment lol. Thanks for the potholder pattern, I want to give these a try so looking for something easy! I'm really hoping I've not taken on to much this year but I'm enjoying it so thats all that matters lol.

  2. Great pot holder--I know what you mean about it being hard on the hands though. I am currently on "time out" from knitting and crochet while I heal. Your dog is so cute, mine loves a cuddle under a blanket too.

  3. Potholders and dishcloths are so easy to whip up. A friend gave me that same yarn a while back and I crocheted a granny square dishcloth. It was rather thick to work with that's for sure. Annie is adorable! Good idea to spruce things up and join more groups. Goodness, I didn't realize I would have so many visitors when I joined the Grow Your Blog party. I still have so many people to visit. Have a super dee duper Saturday! :) Tammy

  4. I have seen green eye on several dog photos now. Maybe they're all secretly aliens. Lovely potholder!
