At the last minute we decided to stay an extra month in The Villages. It's hard to find places to rent at this time of year, but we were lucky to land a lovely home due to a cancellation. The owners are off doing good work in the world (literally, helping children in 3rd world countries) while we are golfing and swimming and uking and woodworking and dancing and using their golf cart, kitchen, den, wifi, and shower.
I decided to make a gift for our hosts, but when I looked around I couldn't find a thing that they need. Finally I settled on a toaster cozy (everyone needs one, right?). Then I couldn't find a pattern online, so I designed my own version. I uploaded it to Ravelry to benefit all toaster lovers.
