Pong's Punch of Color Pad

When I was twelve I decided I was going to make hand quilted hot pads for my entire family. I had never sewn before, and sewing was not a tradition in my family, but this did not stop me. I sat on the floor in my bedroom, thimble and thread in hand and sewed stitch by stitch for several months a hot pad for everyone I loved. I was visiting my parents a few weeks ago (they live several thousands of miles away and I rarely get to see them), and there was the hot pad under a steaming pot of mashed potatoes. I asked if that was what I had made almost 15 years ago. My mother informed me that it has always been her favorite hot pad. Since then I have used sewing to show my love for the people in my life from my first sewing machine project (an Amy Butler Swing Bag!) for a best friends birthday to the Big Footed Bunnies (Wee Wonderfuls) for my new niece and nephew when they were born; my proudest moments have always been the moment of joy on my loved ones face when they receive a hand sewn gift.
