my creative space

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

I do love to crochet! 

But, I've been finishing off something else this morning.  It's for my Mum.

If you'd like to share your creative space this Thursday, join in here!

A couple of days ago, I showed you a couple of potholders and Kate asked if I'm planning on using them or hanging them on a wall.

They're hanging in my kitchen BUT I don't know if I can bring myself to use them.  So there's a question for you:

What would you do?  Would you hang them on a wall? 
Would you put them to use?  Perhaps you wouldn't make them at all! 

Do let me know!

I'm having flickr trouble too!  I can't get into my old account and have had to open a new one.  So, now I have quite a few bits to change!

I LOVE that top pot holder. Just lovely. I would use them. I'm not much "for good only".

That top photo is magic!
I have crocheted many, many pot holders. I love to make them as they are quick to make and finish projects and great for learning new stitches but I have mine hanging on my kitchen wall and I use tea towels for taking things from the oven. XX

Assalamu'alaykum sister,

Masha'Allah I like the colors! Also your mom will really like that card I think.

As for your potholders, I find from personal experience that crochet/knitted potholders are not very practicle for picking up hot things, so maybe if I were to use these for the kitchen and such, might reinforce them with some kind of fabric on the back to help mantain the heat more.

Otherwise, I agree with the others it would make beautiful masha'Allah decor.
