It rained this past weekend, so I decided to reduce some of my stash by making a couple of mug rugs, which always make nice gifts and if you don´t spend hours like me, on deciding the colour combinations, can be cut out and sewn quite quickly..... that is ...... if you don´t need any applique paper.
I had very little, so off I wobbled (due to sprained ankle) to our local ` enter at your own risk´ patchwork shop and this is of course just what you should not do. If you have children, send them or your husband, a neighbour or anyone who won´t be tempted by a wicker basket full of very pretty fat quarters in blues, creams, reds and tans, all just sitting there saying ¨buy me, I´m perfect for your mug rugs¨. Of course I loved the reds but contrarily bought some blues.
and the chocolate cake coloured fabric also. Did I mention that I nearly left the shop without the applique paper? so pleased as I was by the new fatties and some pen refills.
Until next time.
