Quiet Memorial Day for me

Hope everyone's having a happy and safe Memorial Day today! I've been staying inside, keeping cool and hiding from the bugs. I've been crocheting some kitchen stuff ... let me show you what I made so far:

This pretty fllower potholder is 100% cotton and was made in two pieces and then crocheted together (about an 8" sqare)

Another 8" square cotton potholder that has a shell motif in the center and I also made another bee scrubbie (cotton and nylon scrubbie inside.)

Gizzy has been a very patient boy, mostly sleeping by my side. Tomorrow I'll make an appointment to see the doctor about my welts and strange, itchy rash for some antibiotic. Gizzy and Middi need to go to the Vet this week for flea drops and a few shots...that'll be my first priority - our health!

Now I'm browsing through some patterns to see what "speaks" to me ;-) Again, Happy Memorial Day! Enjoy your BBQ (if you're having one!) I don't eat red meat anymore, but I have to confess that smelling a thick, juicy steak charcoaling over a grill still makes my mouth water.

I love your choice of colors in the top and bottom potholders Doris as well as their pattern. Do you ever do a spider web pattern with a little spider in the middle? If you ever do,let me know as I'd buy some of those from you!
Oh I am so unhappy to hear you still have issue going on with regards to bug bite! I am happy tho that you all are getting checked out! That is a relief! And will be for you too! I know around my house I keep Benadryl on hand for those times when we get bug bite or get into nettle or itchweed or whatever...we are all asthmatic and quickly turn into the Hive People! Benadryl really helps. I've even smeared it on hives, lol.
Do stay in and keep cool. It was 91 here yesterday...very a bit of a cool down but nevertheless I will be staying in and out of the hot sun.
Stay safe and thanks for the share!
Give the 'kids' a hug from Auntie Akasa. :)

Cute cute things, Doris. I really love those little scrubbies. You could make any sort of animal out of them couldn't you? Perfect to clean up dirty little boys in the bath.

How goes WW? We need to hook up and talk about it. I don't know about you but I could use some encouragement. I'm doing okay but gained .5 last week. Too much ice cream.

The potholders are so pretty. Great work. Sorry to hear that about the hives, etc. That's too uncomfortable. Hope that you get relief quickly. Blessings to you.

I have to wonder if you got into some poison ivy, Doris? I hope not. It is heck.

The bee scrubbie is beyond cute!!!
