New potholders

Front
Aunt Pitty Pat the Queen of swaps recently hosted a potholder swap. My partner was Melinda and she sent me these wonderful potholders.

Back

The one on the left was from an estate sale that Melinda attended a bit ago. I will most likely use the crocheted one as a doily. I love the orange one and we have already tested it out a few times. Works beautifully, thanks Melinda!!

Ooh, I love old crocheted potholders. And the quilted one is so bright and cheerful I would want to cook just to use it!

The orange one is wonderful. When I look at the old one, I just wonder what it has seen and what stories it could tell.
