It's November already, time sure flies.
I don't know about you, but I sure appreciate this quick little project this month.
With the Christmas holiday season approaching, I need all the time I can squeeze out of my day!
I have long been fascinated with the "Folded Star" hot pads,
which make great mug rugs.
I bought my first one at Grand Teton National Park about 35 years ago.
While it looks pretty sad these days, it keep on a going.
There is something to be said about durability after so many years.
Not that I have seen this much lately!
My grand daughter has taken a liking to it, and hides from us.
We have found it in our underwear drawer, my nightstand, in the cabinet under the TV...
just about any place you would "not" expect to find it.
I had to grab it from her, so I could write my post!
It's a good thing she's cute!
This summer Joi, one of my quilt club friends bought us the pattern
and interfacing templates to make them. It was a "happy dance" day for me.
I finally got to replace my worn hot pad and it
couldn't have been be easier, either.
These templates give you perfect stars every time.
Nothing, like trying to make a perfect star on an ball shaped ornament,
like we were doing last year!
Here is my new Thanksgiving hot pad.
Joi surprised us all, with her special Halloween hot pads!
(You know, how I LOVE Halloween.
So now I'm on to Christmas...
It's a start, and one with some pretty wild colors.
Maybe I will tone it down a bit on the next one.
A little more traditional.
Tee Hee Hee!!
Check it out at, "Plum Easy Patterns" for yourself
And give your table a "No Ring" for any day of the year!
Thanks Carla for another fun filled blog hop.
Please visit my fellow bloggers and leave them a little love today!
