Hooray for a mug rug

What's a mug rug I hear you say - well its an overgrown coaster - big enough to hold both your mug and a treat.  It was also the first project this term for the textile group.  Today we focussed on the applique - we are using the raw edge technique - but I am being nasty to them.  Next week we are tackling free motion quilting - something that most of the group haven't tried yet!

After some nice home made soup for lunch, it was then off to the surgery for the leg dressing before coming home and tackling the Tuesday night sewing project - I am sooooooo far behind but have made some inroads today.

I have nearly finished the last block from A Quilter Lives Here - I just have the shop sign to attach so that will be done this evening.  Then I want  to move onto the February block fro the Scamblesby quilt - a lovely embroidered picture designed by Terry,  picture to follow tomorrow hopefully!

Otherwise its been a quite day - if rather foul weather.  Since my car cannot now be seen beneath the dirt I think its time to get it cleaned tomorrow!


  1. Busy busy busy by the sounds of it!

  2. I love a mug rug myself and your applique pattern is so cute! Hope it has been a good start to 2017 and best wishes for the remainder of the year too! Christine x
