Hot tamales, muchachos!
My pot holders from the FVMQG / VMQG swap arrived last week. (This is the swap that I made these for.) Lysa, my swap partner, had a family matter to sort out, so she emailed me to let me know that she’d have to miss the deadline. And for some reason she thought I needed to be treated for being so patient, when really, I was just tanning my butt in the sunshine in Sydney (= suffering!), so she sent me a double whammy surprise, and then some.
Instead of a pair, she made two sets of potholders. On the first set she appliqued / machine-illustrated tea cups and a kettle. I love the scribbley linework!
The second set was made with this funky, mod fabric with fabulous tea cups on it. (I don’t drink coffee, so they are tea cups!) Lysa then embroidered a couple of moustaches on for amusement sake. Love those muchachos!
Then on top of two sets of potholders, Lysa also snuck this little bit of fabulousness in the package: a moustache cup cosy. It make me squawk out loud when I saw it. I love it! And look how toasty it looks on a hot chocolate with whipped cream and drizzle.
Thanks Lysa for the treasures. And I promise that I will no longer pull my sweater over my hands to use them as potholders anymore. (I know – I’m just genius!)
