Success on the 1st Try

It only took me all week to motivate myself to make something...  This week has been a struggle, but with girls night cancelled and my husband out of the house for a few hours, I finally sat down and got my hands busy.  Crafting may be like a drug to me...I get such a satisfaction and joy from making things.  When I am in a blah mood, if I can get myself to craft, I almost always feel better. 

This idea has been bouncing around in my brain for the last week.  A rag rug, using old t-shirts with a crochet mesh backing.  Instead of just jumping in head first and tackling something as big as a rug, I decided to try a 5" x 5" pot holder first. I am so very happy with the way it turned out, I kind of wish I would of just made the rug.

The pot holder turned out exactly as I wanted it to, which I find amazing!  I have written up a pattern and will be sharing very soon if anyone wants it.
