    Back in August I was in a terrible car accident and can't do much of anything. Before the accident, I had been working on many projects but can't really do any of them now. About a week ago, I did find that I had cut out a pair of potholders and a large hot pad that fits under a cake pans and cookie sheets. The other day I went to work. What should have taken me no time at all, took me all day but I was able to complete them. The fabric has a recipe card motif. One of the recipes is for gingerbread men so I traced my own ginger guy and quilted him, with ginger-colored tread, in the middle of the potholders and hot pad. I had previously used the same fabric to make an apron with the ginger guy appliqued on the bib.

    Very clever! I like your gingerbread men as the quilting. That would make a nice gift along with cookie and bread pans and recipes for someone's birthday. It will take a good year before you start feeling better. Wishing you a faster recovery.
