    Thank you so much for this wonderful pattern. I came across it on pintrest and fell in love. It reminds me of my grandma’s house when I was a child and I couldn’t wait to make a set for myself. Your pattern was so well written, and easy to follow. Making these was a breeze. Thank you for sharing your talents. You can see my hot pads on my blog if you’d like =0)
