When I first discovered some of my favorite blogs, I fell in love with a couple in particular. One of my favorites is Crochet by the Sea. It not only has lovely photo's and uplifting posts, but she always makes me feel like I'm coming to my dream home. There's one things though, that has captured my attention ever since I first started visiting her blog, and that is a thread crocheted dress potholder. I remember my grandmother having a set of these hanging in her kitchen, and I just loved them! I always wished I was small enough to fit into them because they were so pretty and dainty looking. I was sure I would be a princess if only I could wear one of those dresses.
I don't know what happened to those dainty little potholders from my grandmothers kitchen, if I knew who got them, I would beg on my knees for just one of those treasures. So I thought the next best thing would be for me to make one for myself. Sounds easy, doesn't it? Well, it ISN'T!
I have used every search engine I can think of, I've used every possible wording I can imagine for what those dresses would be called, and I have had no luck. I guess I will have to give up my dream, and that makes me very sad. If it weren't for the baby things that my family have asked me to make for the new babies that are on their way, I wouldn't even be picking up my hooks, that's how disheartening this is for me.
If you'd care to see the thread dress potholder I'm talking about, visit Faith at Crochet by the Sea. You'll have to scroll down the page but the photo is on the left side of the page. Oh yeah, for a special treat, make sure your speakers are turned on so you can hear the lovely wind chimes!
I wish you a happy day, filled with blessing and love!
