This is really nice! I came up with a similar hot pad using front/back loops to use up scraps. I'll post it one of these days...

Pray for powers equal to your tasks.Then the doing of work shall be no miracle, but you shall be the miracleRunescape Gold, Fear not that the life shall come to an end, but rather fear that it shall never have a beginning rs gold, At twenty years of age, the will reigns; Runescape Gold at thirty, the wit; and at forty, the judgment. What gets us into trouble is not what we don't know.It's what we know for sure that just ain't so.
