Ever since the beginning of the 3rd mug rug swap, I've made 9 mug rugs, none of which my partner has commented on, I'll have you know. Now, I know you can't comment on everything, but trouble is that she hasn't commented on anything else that I knew of either and I've been looking. I was thinking of what I could do to maybe "shake her up", so earlier this week I thought I finally "had it" and made this:
I used to just love that song from "Alice in Wonderland" when Tweeledee and Tweedledum sang it...do you remember? Oh well, anyway, I drew the oval freehand and went to town. I hand embroidered all those words, appliqued those teeny tiny candles, stitched the sprinkles on the cake, pieced the bias binding and got it on almost perfectly and ........."nothing". Not a peep!
Then, just for fun, and because I wanted (and because I have a strange personality, I suppose), I made this:
Yes, it's a mug rug too! It does have batting and the yolk, in fact, even has three layers making it stick up real 3D like. I should have saved it for the QT Mini swap for this time.....the theme is 3D, BUT the real funny thing is that I've gotten more comments in Flickr on this goofy egg than on some of my other stuff which has taken me sometimes 10 times longer to make. Who knew? Now, I wonder what other kinds of food I can find to quilt???
And I suppose you're wondering..........."No", she didn't comment on this one either. LOL
