With a number of people saying they were already sending out their Christmas Stocking swap packages, I thought it was best if I finish up mine. For my last project, I purchased a fun ‘crafty themed mug’ at Joann’s, stuffed it was hot drink goodies, and decided to make a mug rug. Since my partner’s favorite colors are the redaquawhite combination I opted to go with that, but quickly realized that I didn’t have enough coordinating fabrics to do a patchwork so I decided to go with a ‘whole cloth’ look and an applique. After a bit of searching I went with these guys (but transformed him from an ornament into an applique) – I’m hoping I can find a cute button or embellishment that I can add to give him some dimension after I’m done quilting the rug. Today, I plan to fire up the BSR and do some free motion quilting – I’m so excited, it’s a foot that I don’t get to play with often enough!
