I have some girlfriends coming over tonight for a "hen party" - we're going to have supper, then come down to the basement to do some sewing. We get together about every 1-2 months to work on different projects - tonight's project is hotpads! I recently got this pattern, and just now whipped up a trial run. Not only is it totally simple to make, but it is frigging ADORABLE! Here's my first one, and it is cute cute cute - I'm definitely going to be making more of these! Nancy, Amanda - I can't wait for tonight - we're going to have fun!
