QuiltE...here is a hexagon to make a scrappy GFG although it would have to be made smaller. I'm slowly becoming addicted to scraps and crumbs. http://quiltville.blogspot.com/. It's unreal how many blocks can be made if you just close your eyes and sew without trying to control the outcome too much.
QNS...we only got down to about 25 last night but we did have a few snow flakes in the grass. You could get heating mats like they use in hog houses. Just have a couple where you spend most of your time. Little piggys like to be warm! Here is a link to investigate.
my LQS carries Arifil along with several other brands. Dubib described it well. I got some online too at about 1/3 of the price. What do you use, Honchey and QNS?
dubib..have fun with the DGS. They grow up so fast.
