I was lost without my machine! I was waking up in the middle of the night with ideas, and I just about drove myself nuts! 'Course, it didn't help that it was raining outside some mornings. I should have been cleaning my house, but I (for some dumb reason) can't clean in the rain, or when it's dark, or anytime I have lack of natural light. Crazy, I know, but it's my excuse! So now, when I finally have my baby back, I must get down to business! First though, I just HAD to make something that was floating in my brain. I have visions to do this bigger in sections, but thought I'd first try it out on a mug rug:
Isn't that the most perfect binding fabric? Strange that I found it in my basement bin where I have stuff I usually don't use, but found while I was down there looking for something else. Needless, to say, it's staying upstairs now!! I actually have it in another color way too so you'll probably be seeing that sometime in the future.
Here is another mug rug that I made. I was a bad girl and copied this almost exactly from a mug rug a friend did a few years ago. If you click the picture, you will get a link to hers so you can see that too.
So, I think that's it for the mug rugs for awhile. I made 6, and really only needed 1, so I'm set. Now I am going to concentrate on the Fab Little Quilt Swap quilt that I need to make. Needless to say, I'm sure I won't be able to do just one there either. I already have tons of ideas, so we'll see how far I get. At least I did something while my machine was gone:
Now to continue. I'm thinking this will be colorful and fun and VERY me! Stay tuned! I'm going to try to quilt it today since it's already pieced and ready to go. Stay tuned................
