Typically, after my Family Christmas on Christmas Eve, all 'Out-of -Towners' are invited to my Mom's condo for an 'After Party Party'. At this second party on Christmas Eve, we exchange smaller gifts with everyone there. These hot pads are going to be for the 'Out-of-Town' girls at my Mom's house. I will probably pick up another 'little something' to go with the hot pads, too.
I finished piecing them on Sunday. Tore off the foundation papers during a game of Clue on Sunday night. Layered and sewed on Monday. Turned them right sides out on Tuesday.
This morning I was able to sew around the outside to enclose the turning point.
