Going potty….

..is one way of using up scraps or “minestrone” as Kaite you can see more minestrone here

Some weeks ago I finished crocheting a blanket using bamboo yarn….

I really enjoyed working with this yarn…sadly there was not much yarn left over….

….. but enough to inspire these little pots….

my pot collection is growing rapidly as I am on a “minestrone” clear out drive….we have recently heard that our next posting is Beijing ….so I have to reduce my stash before we leave in April next year…

Gorgeous little pots, very special. Beijing? bit different to where you are now.

Ha, I love the pots ! (reminds me of the "cusspots" (whatever thát really means) which Deb Lacativa makes and stuffs with goody scraps)
You still have time to make "some" more before you change places .... Thought that too just like Kaite: quite a different place from where you are now ;-)

Yes Els I have seen Debs "cuss pots". To cuss is to use bad language....swear! I liked that Deb used to put money in her pot every time she used a swear word and then later filled her pots with scraps. Not sure what I'll put in my pots.....any ideas?

your blanket is gorgeous and your pots are as adorable as could be, especially the one leaning over with the bell hanging. great idea to use up the bits and pieces.

So good to find your blog again...Your blanket is amazing love the colors and the "cuss pots" are such fun.
Perhaps you will meet Ali in Beijing :)

Thank you Mo'a for dropping by...just have to make one correction...my pots are not "cuss pots" those belong to Deb Lacativa...I would not want to be seen to be copying her idea...:-)!

I meant to comment on your wrap also, it's beautifully made and seems to shine with all the colours.
