I was "shopping" last Sunday at my church for gifts such as pregnant goats, heifers, chickens and other animals you don't even have to take care of. I bought a pregnant goat for my sister (please don't tell her - her house is too small and she doesn't have much grass in the back yard). This was through CCH (Community Coalition for Haiti) and I so enjoy doing this each year. Why shop at Macy's for another fancy blouse when you can provide a livelihood for a poor family in a third world country. I made a bee line for a set of two pot holders and I scooped them up for my daughter Hilary who loves to cook (doesn't take after her mom) and only has 2 raggedy potholders (but that's like her mom).

First, the 3 hot pads from leftover blocks. These are from the Bella Collection by Windham Fabrics. You can see dozens and dozens of projects made with this Bella Collection on the Windham Pinterest page.

More to come as I finish a few more gifts. I received two brand new collections by Blend Fabrics and I can't wait to share them. But I'm busy with Christmas preparations and don't even have my tree up (but my dear husband is out right now looking for a small tabletop tree). Hope you enjoy these items I shared!
