    I'm sure she'll love it. My own appliances remain nekked and hedonistic.

    Lisa....I got that a couple years ago at Walmart.....You can still buy it...I've seen it online...somewhere! LOL My DGD was with me that day and they had 4 fat quarters, all JD fabric and she said "Gramma, you HAVE to buy that fabric for Grampa!" LOL

    thanks for the nice compliments!

    Too cute!

    I am making a toaster cover for my Gramma, but it is girly. A basket block appliqued on the front. Lots of orange, pale yellow and white on sage green Sweet Pea fabric. Her favorite colors.

    The John Deere cover is a hoot!

    Patsy, The toaster cover is soooo cute. I also have a nekked toaster so I might try making a cover for it.

    Loretta, Thanks for the great hint.

    Lorette:
    Great Idea, thanks for the tip. I keep our toaster in the cupboard and everytime I vacume I have to get the crumbs out of the cupboard, too!

    Country Quilter:
    Your toaster cover is really cute and your thoughtfulness is to be commended. My mom, too, covers her toaster with a towel so maybe your thoughtfulness could rub off on me! Guess I'll whip one up. Thanks for the idea.

    Rebecca:
    A tea cozy? I was going to make one of those a while back and got side tracked. Guess I'll revisit that idea. Do you have a great pattern that is available on the Internet?

    Keep sewing and Merry Christmas one and all!

    No I don't have a pattern, Was going to look on the internet, and see if I found any I like, IF Not, Then I'll go with my own idea. I've been toying with the idea of a crazy quilt one . So I could add some charms and buttons pertaining to tea.

    Thanks,

    And someone asked about a toaster cover pattern.... I didn't have one....but found one that is what I basically did...except I didn't use piping and I used upholstery fabric instead of batting for a stiffer feel and I used 1/2 inch seam allowance (cutting the upholstery fabric 1/2 inch smaller where the seams would meet....I quilted my fabric and muslin lining onto the UF first, then stitched the two seams and put a border around the bottom! OH and my toaster is more rounded so I rounded the corners.

    Thank you all for the pattern sites for the tea cozy and the toaster cover. After Christmas I may get busy and measure some toasters and some tea pots and make some. A million thanks!
    Merry Christmas,
    Feathers
