Tomorrow has been declared a SNOW DAY!!!
It’s really just a “the ice is going to be really bad, so stay home, because it’s the south and we don’t know how to take care of the roads…ya hear?!?” day around these parts.
Either way? This school nurse is as giddy as her students!
As I was making a warm meal as the temperatures dropped tonight, I realized I never shared my snowflake trivets and potholders that I finished awhile back.
I was part of a row by row blog hop, many moons ago, where I was asked to design an EPP row. I came up with these fun snowflakes for the Winter Wonderland quilt.
A few months ago, I came to the conclusion I was never going to finish the other rows, since I obviously never started them. I knew that my husband would make fun of my Xmas potholders, as he usually does, when January hit. I thought they would make great “winter” gear for the kitchen!
The hexie shaped trivets work well for all kinds of shapes and sizes of hot items and I always love making, what I call, pocket potholders to protect the back of my hands (see second photo). And I used up stash!
I can’t wait to have my coffee at my leisure tomorrow morning and surprise our puppy when he realizes I’m not going to work. And of course, a little time in the studio…
