My husband and I just returned from a wonderful dinner with some friends, Muhammet & Hulya, who are here from Turkey. Hulya is a WONDERFUL cook and has a Turkish Cooking blog that is definitely worth a look. Check it out here.
I wanted to take something to her as a hostess gift and finally had an idea....duh....she is a Chef....take potholders!!!
The next step was to actually make some, so I returned to Anita's (check out her blog too) idea of using orphan blocks to make potholders. This is the UFO that I came up with...it was a border of a quilt that I decided not to use....
and this is what I turned it into!!!
We had a wonderful evening with TONS of excellent food!!!!!
