I'm crocheting in Georgia

Hello, my name is Doris from Crocheting in Georgia and I enjoy crocheting and knitting. Since it's been so hot here lately, I have lots of indoor crocheting time with Gizzy (my dog) while the A/C runs non-stop.

Because 4th of July is just around the corner, I would like to show you some of my patriotic crocheted items, such as this cotton flower potholder and the cotton chick scrubbie...instead of stuffing the amigurumi with the polyester fiberfill, I stuffed a nylon pot scourer inside, so it can be used to wash the dishes.

I also crocheted these patriotic cotton dish cloths (or wash cloths) and towel toppers (below) and attached the matching terry kitchen towels:

I crocheted this potholder in the Polish Star pattern using red, white and blue cotton yarn and the picture below is of one of my crocheted patriotic rooster potholders.

Another rooster potholder and a patriotic bee hanger:

Below is my crocheted cotton wash cloth (or dish cloth) set and some patriotic cotton star coasters:

 Let me just add that it took me a long time to get into Pins and Needles, but with the perseverance and help from Cathy (CJ) of From Cathy With Love...I am finally here. Cathy really put her all into helping me. Thank you, Cathy, I appreciate your persistence! What a pleasure it's been to discover a Kindred Spirit!

And lastly a word from the dog (my Gizzy):

"Be cool, Baby"
(Yeah, Gizzy's a big time Clifford fan!)

 Here's wishing you all a very happy and safe Independence Day!

Oh would you please come to my house in NC and teach me how to do more than crochet a verrrrrrrry long chain? I can knit, sew, embroider, x-stitch but crochet has eluded me.

Your creations are so wonderful!

Gizzy is cute too!
