Chase that partner. Kiss him on the sly. Love that partner. Some one who’s shy. Find you a partner. Make yourself his wife. Count your blessings the rest of your life.
This potholder looks oval but it must be an optical illusion. The original measures 7″ in diameter and is indeed round but the digital scan doesn’t look very round. So, I printed this out and it is indeed round and not oval. I’m not a math genius but I promise that it really is round!
I used a similar pattern as the center block in a pieced quilt. I used red floss for the traditional redwork look. Click on the image for the large size.

This is presented sideways so it can be printed out at it’s original size of 8″ x 9″. Originally it was designed to be a potholder but it could also be printed out in red for a custom valentine and glued to some lace.
