I made two mug rugs to go with a table runner I made a couple of years ago so I could give them to my parents this year. The only problem is I lost a mug rug. I cleaned my sewing room and now it has disappeared. This is what happens when you clean up!
The mug rug is a free design using this tutorial by Megan. It was part of the mug rug madness holiday addition over at Erin's blog, Two More Seconds.
I got an early Christmas present of a charm packs and decided to make half square triangles. There are so many quilts I want to make using these that I will decide later what to do. I will probably make some more with fabric from my stash before making any decisions.
I decided to give Dave a canvas of a photo he took of the Golden Gate Bridge when we were in San Francisco for Christmas. I was so excited at how it turned out that I had to give it to him early. I came up with many excuses to justify it but really I just could not wait! It is not often that I think of something he will love. I had the photo put on a canvas in black and white. The only problem is that I think it would look better on a different colour wall.
I decided to try something different with my jelly roll race quilt and make it a summer quilt. I did not use batting and put a green flannel on the back ( it does not show up in the photo). I love how it feels. I t is so light and drapes beautifully. I now want to try using flannel instead of batting. I quilted it with straight lines along the seams.
I could not resist taking a photo with Brittanys new dog. It is solar powered and wags it tail in the sun.
