Back By Popular Demand

I've been spending a lot of time making hot pads. And I've finally finished and listed them to the shop. Hot pads are fun to make, because I get to make and create new and different things without having to invest a lot of time and energy in a big project. And I'm improving, like using this technique for the bindings.

I've even paired a couple hot pads with dish towels as requested. These dish towels were a blast to make. For my ruffle inspiration see this link.

The only sad part to my story is that the Holiday House/Handmade Boutique isn't happening this year. I'm pretty disappointed, especially after all the work I put into it. But I guess that's just how it goes. On the plus side, I'll be listing the whole lot in the shop, so hopefully all that work won't be for naught.

And hot pads aren't the only things I've been working on, however, everything else is of the Christmas gift persuasion and I love surprises to much to risk letting them get out before the big day. But I can tell you that there is a lot of yellow and grey on my cutting table and despite my previous vows I've joined this swap. On that suspenseful note I'll leave you for today.
