    Forgot about the update, sorry. I have mine sewn and need to hand sew the binding, then they will be done. Shortly I will just be waiting for my partner's name and status will be ready to mail.

    I finished a mug rug, but, then I needed a quick gift for a board member that shared the stars and stripes pattern with me. I am so bad! I will work on another one today. I even forgot to take a picture of that one, dang it.

    But, here is a picture of some I made last year.... The first ones were hubbies because he loved to first ones I made for his brother. (which is the second picture)

    I finished my main block and now working on the border and trying to decide on backing and binding. I have been enjoying the whole process. My DH keeps shaking his head at what I am doing. He confused about what a mug rug is. I should be done this weekend since the weather hear is wet rainy and gray all week, can't do much work out side.

    I have misplaced my photos of the ones I did last year. I made a sunflower one, that was my favorite for Tammoo who loves them. Alas, no photo. maybe she is around and can upload it.
    I am still milling ideas right now. Have another obligation that has overtaken my design wall so can't quite get to this. Oh my goodness, it just occured to me. I can make two of the one block I am making. hey there it is. I know what I am going to do. Yep, one mug rug in the works just from me typing up this note. A little teapot and cup on a mat with sugar cubes and saucer. Sounds like a winner.
