I actually drew it yesterday and couldn't wait to put it together. I knew the "sprinkles" would be the crowning glory!! He-he! When my kids were little, they wouldn't touch ice cream or donuts that didn't have sprinkles on top. And my daughter always insisted on a cherry too! This little mug rug would be right up her alley. (I won't show her though........she already stole Goosey Lucy last night......so how many mug rugs does she need anyhow?)
My favorite is this one though:
Ever since the doll swap, I've been itching to do another crayon quilt. Actually, I didn't originally plan on doing this one that way, but after I looked at the amount of feathers, and wondered how I'd keep them all straight with applique, I decided that crayons would be my best bet. I love how he turned out and I am staring at him hanging in my kitchen right now. I named it, "A peacock in a pear tree" for obvious reasons. Just wait for the rest of the 12 days of Christmas. You can only imagine what 4 calling birds might look like, can't you???? How fun! I have all sorts of whimsical stuff swimming in my head. (Incidentally, if you want a brush up course on how to do the crayon procedure, here is a link to my tutorial: http://mamacjt.blogspot.com/2010/08/flowers-by-mail.html) The only thing I did differently this time, is I used a #30 weight black thread rather than the #12 pearl cotton. The #12 perle would have been too thick for that many lines and I would have had a million ends to bury.
I also can show you a beauty of a placemat that I received from suejoy today. She was my swap partner for that swap. I just love it.
So that's it until next time. Who knows what will be next? With me, you just never know!!! I sure hope you have fun seeing all my stuff as much as I LOVE making it. Come back....please?? It's so much more fun to share.
