    Survived the Blizzard

    So the weatherman was correct, a blizzard with tons of snow. However our power remained on so I took the time to try making this hot pad. I like it!

    that's gorgeous--wish I was on your Christmas list next year! And so glad you kept power--we did too despite freezing rain and gale force winds--just not as cold as early as the forecasters predicted--thank you, God!

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Beautiful work! We did get some of the blizzard. We lost power and some phone service, but we live in the country and learned a long time ago to be prepared with a generator connected to tractor. We have power now and are much luckier than those in other areas and the ones hit by the terrible tornado!

    You did a terrific job on this! Pretty fabric choices. The low driving the storms went 150 miles east, and we didn't get the foot of snow and high winds. It would have better for us to get hit out in the rural areas instead of the city areas to the east. Most of electrical lines are underground now and so what if the wind blows snow across an empty field.

    It is currently 32.7C = 90.86F (5.05PM) in Adelaide town! On Christmas day it was 38C = 100.4F so we opted to stay indoors and had ham and english mustard sandwiches washed down with a large jug of Pimms for Christmas lunch! I can not remember the last time we had a winter frost!

    Cheers Jan

    PS Top job on the potholder!

    What a fun hot pad. I really like its cheery colors. Nothing like getting prepared for whatever comes next. I am glad your power stayed on and that you used your time as a bonus time. We didn't get any of the weather this time around.

    Beautiful! I've seen this pattern before but can't remember where. Would you mind sharing the name of your pattern?
