Paul & I decided to check out the op shops in the area looking for bits to put in the new verandah area we’re working on. We didn’t find anything suitable but I did find an op shop with a fantastic range of books. I’ll enjoy sitting on the verandah reading them. :-)
When I carried the books out to photograph them, I dropped a couple of them & this card fell out of ‘Evening Class.’ Now there are a lot of names in the world, so for the name on the card to be the same as my eldest ds is a bit of a coincidence!!!
Sewing wise I seem to have caught the Mug Rug Bug, try saying that 3 times!!!! I have finished 3 & have plans for many more.
I have to admit the binding is time consuming but I saw some coasters on a blog this morning & they had been ‘birthed,’ rather than bound & they had ricrac sewn into the seam. I think they look great & would save lot’s of time, so I’ll be giving that a go.
I’m going to a quilt group Xmas party next week, it’s the first Xmas party I’ve been to in years, & I decided to make a Mug Rug for my Kris Kringle gift. Of course it should have a mug to match so I did the smart thing & went in search of the mug first. I spotted this cute Japanese style mug & as I have a collection of Japanese fq’s thought it would be ideal.It even has a lid to keep your drink hot.
