Hi Y'all, sorry that I am so late posting. Wow what a busy day I had to start my week. I got up early had my coffee, took my shower, got dressed then started my day. I had a few loads of laundry to do, then I had some errands to run. So busy all day, but I did get a little time to crochet this hot pad. It isn't my design but I found it in my stash, so I thought I would whip it up. The center was very easy to do, but when I got to the petals, I guess my mind wasn't  working very well, lol. I must of ripped those stitches out for the petals 4 or 5 times, then all of a sudden my brain kicked in & I was on a roll.
Have you ever had one of those days where you can read something & it just doesn't click?  Maybe it's the age or maybe just too much on my mind.
Since I was soooo busy since early in the morning, by the time I had made dinner & got the kitchen cleaned up, it was late.
Then when I finally had quiet time to sit at my computer, I find out that my DSL wasn't working properly, so I had to wait until it was up & running. Boy what a crazy Monday, but I do feel that I got a lot accomplished.
Hope you enjoy the pic of the Sunflower Hot Pad. After looking at the finished design, I was thinking wouldn't that be nice as  place mats for the kitchen table. What do you think about that idea?
Leave me your comments, cause I would love to hear what you think about the place mat idea.
I also want to welcome a new follower, Vany. I hope that you check back each day & please if you ever have any questions for me, I will try to answer them for you.
Have a Wonderful & Blessed Day.

  1. I think place mats would be great. Why stop there, you could even make a kitchen rug out of the same design. I like that. The only potholder I can do, is a granny square. Don't adventure out to much. I can't understand patterns, so I have to stay to simple things. I did do some Knot Hot Pot Pads. That is it. So you are away head of me. You go girl. Have you been watching HSN today Crafts all day. Not ordering but getting ideas.
