Makes 14 pot scrubbers
6 yard of netting ( inside color)
4 yards of netting ( outside color)
Large Rotary cutter and mat
Size n crochet hook
cut netting into 2 inch strips lengthwise
Inside color- Make 2
Chain 3 join to make a ring
9 single crochets in the ring join
chain 3 -triple crochet in 1st stitch
Then 2 triple crochets in each single crochet --join
Tie 2 circles together
With single crochet join the two together working in the ends
these easily sell anywhere from one to two dollars are very durable and can go through the dishwasher to clean . They last about 6 months but my final warning once you start making them people will not let you stop.I started making them over 15 years ago now just make them when I travel on trips
But then one day I filled out one of my orders wrong and got ticked because I was charged shipping So I cancelled it all and thought I could so it on my own . I stopped eating my lean and geen meals and used a protein bar I found at Costco Started with 1 a day then before I knew it it was 3 or 4 a day Why was I shocked that I gained 3 weeks in a row and the last week 4 pounds ,I have to stop.I do not want to go back to July 4th 2012
So I swallowed my pride and realized nobody cared about $13,30 in shipping but me .I was the one that did not review the order before sending it and $15 more it would have been free shipping. Today I placed another order I know it is enough for free shipping
I came home from my Tops Christmas Dinner with a renewed spirit and prayed that God would help me achieve my heath back . I needed to write down why I like losing weight I needed to record what it was like what happened and what it is like now
So today I am back to Day One I will come back to this post when I need to remember.

I quilted it at Sandy's sewing. Liked how it looked
It has been busy week mailed out 3 table runners on wensday. Then cut out 4 pair of pajama bottoms and 2 tops.
When I spend so much time sewing I set my timer for 30 minutes then walk 10 times from back door to front door.
Amego has been going down to the basement hanging out with Tim.
Tuesday night had dinner with my husband Terry at Peking Palace. They get there soy sauce from China so it is not fermented in wheat so many of the foods on the menu is gluten free.
