Crochet Sun Potholder (oven mitt) Warning: Very bright Orange!!

I made this for a challenge over at crochet for life. The challenge is to make a square or motif that will be made into something else. It took me ages to figure something out to make but eventually I found this pattern on the site and set to work. This took me only a day to make. I figured out how to half double crochet ( really easy as it goes) and joining the two orange circles together whilst crocheting the yellow edging.
I think its too thin to be used as a pot holder but it does look pretty and is now hanging on the kitchen roll holder.
I made this with a size 6mm hook and bright orange and yellow value wool/yarn.

Super Smash Bros Pitt Cross Stitch Complete

It's taken me nearly a year to stitch this but finally its complete!!! I'm so excited I've taken the photos before I've washed and ironed it!!! I shall have to get a custom frame for this as I've not left enough fabric for it to go in a normal frame, but that's O.K. This was originally intended to be my step sons christmas 08 present but its taken me this long to get it done so now its a VERY VERY VERY late present!!! He's no longer into SSB but he still loves the cross stitch!! Good on ya la!

I'd like to thank Johloh over at Sprite Stitch for the pattern, its a great pattern, Thank you.
The only thing I missed off the original pattern was the shadowing that surrounded his feet.

Thrors map from the hobbit (part map)

My Dad loves reading and he loves the hobbit and Lord of the Rings so I thought for his birthday this year I would stitch him up one of the maps. I got started in making the pattern and realized that it would be huge and I don't think he would want something too big on his wall so I stuck to just the top middle section of the map and viola!!! The stitching itself too only a week to do, making the pattern took a lot longer!! It's 15 inches wide by 8 inches tall, and I've used 18 count ecru aida.
If you would like the pattern just ask me, I will be happy to share.
