Anyway, back to the party. Bonnie Hunter gave us a very easy clue this week. It only took a couple of hours to finish it. I'm still completely clueless as to how this is all going to fit together. I've a smattering of the different components pinned to my design wall and in no specific arrangement.

With having even more time on my hands after completing the latest clue, I cleared my workspace and put together the two remaining hot pad kits I had purchased in 2013 at Sisters. Both have the same aproned hen with eggs, but the fabrics are different. While making them, I was conscious of my placements when layering so that when I trimmed, I'd save as much fabric as possible - now added to my scrap bin but not counted as an addition to my stash, only a couple of strips, however, remaining also were the strips of InsulBrite, so I zig-zagged those together on my machine and used that to make yet another hot pad pulling a little fabric from my stash - believe me, it doesn't use much!
|All four hot pads.|

|Love the cute little chicks fabric!|
|This one from 'pieced' InsulBrite - no embroidered center here! It's only slightly smaller, under an inch, than the originals from kits.|
