    I have not quilted anything before this. I know there are a lot of mistakes. I hand quilted it to see if I could do anything. I still enjoyed it, and I am piecing a regular quilt, and having fun. The brown patch on the back side of the mug rug also had a personal message written on it for the person, and my name of creator, but didn't get that later picture. I do love the sewing and creating. My husband just got me a table for a machine my mom gave me, and a set of drawers for material. He also got me some tools.

    Thanks for all the encouragement. It means a lot. It wasn't hard, but I Kept trying to make smaller stitches, and my thread would break. Um, I also did this sitting in the living room with no table. Now though I will have one.

    It is so cute with the mug on the rug. And how you have packaged it to give is so sharp
