Gifting No. 2 - Pot Holders

Good morning,

I haven’t been the best of bloggers lately because life is so busy around here. This week, my Mother and I picked and froze about 200 ears of corn. (I don’t grow corn here but a family friend does and they are going through a hard time now so we agreed to do the work and split it with them.) Another friend was out-of-town for a few days and left me in charge of a dog, a cat, four chickens and seven pigs. (It was good practice if I get pigs myself.) Right now, between writing a few sentences here, I’m blanching the massive bowl of beans I was too tired to work on last night. (They got their second wind. And the tomatoes are ripening nicely.) These are just a couple of things that have taken up my days beyond the regular workload, inside and outside the home. I do have posts in mind and fun things to share here. In September I hope to start up the 3 Questions series again. (Summer is not only a super busy time for me but for others as well.)

But this post isn’t about all of that. It’s about gifting. Remember my Gifting series? I only partially forgot about it. OK, maybe completely forgot. These four pairs of pot holders were finished ages ago but, like many other things, have sat in an I’ll-deal-with-this-tomorrow pile. (I really should look through that pile—I fear there might be unpaid bills in it.) I finally got around to snapping a photo of them and even gifted the one. The other three will hopefully be gifted soon as well.
