    Stupid Sewing

    Needed some more or less mindless sewing today after a mind boggling session with a couple of 12-inch blocks...just to decompress!

    Love all the colors in this cute little mug rug. Had you not mentioned it, I would never have known of your terrible blunder. Mentioning it, that is.

    Mug rug is very cute. Sewing not stupid, it is the cleaning the house and cooking that I think is stupid. Sick of it! It is taking away from my time sewing.

    You made a great mug rug! It makes you happy just looking at it. Now you can 'feel better' every time you use it.

    Wow, that will get your attention, and you won't be able to mindlessly sew! I love the bright, bold colors!

    I love the colors. See, you took a frustrating situation and made something useful and pretty. The mug rug would not exist had you not had trouble with the blocks.
