Finally something new.

I was given a lovely gift at Christmas from an established was a "mug rug" I had seen pics on pinterest and thought how cute.  But now that I had one in front of me my thinking changed to what a great idea...small quilting project that would allow me to work on some of my skills for sure without the huge workload of a full quilt.

That having been said it still took quite awhile for me to get my act together and make one.  I haven't been able to purchase any new fabric as finances are very tight at the moment and I so wanted to get something that had a little picture on it.  Sometimes my wants keep me away from what I can create.

So with my sisters birthday approaching I knew I needed an easy project, as I have been unwell for the past 6 weeks, so I thought I know I can do this "mug rug", and off I went to my space.

The first one took me the better part of the day just figuring out the pattern and cutting the pieces, of course picking the fabric takes the longest :).

Now other than my nit picky eyes that find every flaw I have to say I am very happy with how this turned out and the second one I made was done in quick order as I have it all figured out now.  So here is the finished product.

eeeee... I love it...
