    Quick Gifts

    I made some quick trivets (hot pads) for small gifts for Xmas for our favourite waitresses and neighbours etc. The squarish ones were left over fabric from a door hanging I made last year. The round trivets are from a panel and are the perfect size for this purpose. I used two layers of fabric plus a layer of batting and a layer of Insul-Brite. I learned how to use my circle maker that I found on Nancy's Notions site and it worked well for my circles. The snowmen were a good chance to practice my free motion, too. I hope the recipients enjoy using them on their tables during the holidays!

    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    What a great idea for Christmas. I think I know what my friends are getting next year. If I start now I might be done by then. Thanks for sharing.

    love them all, so pretty and excellent job on them
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Very cute. The round ones would also make a lovely table topper if sewn together, much the way you have them laid out.
