Today I was in the mood for a quick project. I turned my little vintage creamer stitchery into a hot pad. I used Insul Bright and discovered that it is very easy to stitch through! I haven't stitched the vintage sugar yet, so the cup and saucer pattern hasn't been posted. I don't know if anyone is stitching them with me or not, but I will copy the cup and saucer on my pattern page next week.
I nearly always prick my finger with the needle at least once while stitching a project : ) I use hydrogen peroxide and a Q-tip to blot out the blood spots and it works quite well. This tip was found somewhere here in blogland and it has saved me from ruining a project more than once!
I am considering tea dying these little hot pads when they are all finished, and then maybe I won't mind using them. I'm afraid the white linen will be dirty in no time!
