NoT MuCh DoNe !

Last weekend we had DD2 up to do some bridal shopping with DD1, so I didn't get much of a chance to actually get any sewing done. Well not technically anyway, my daughter did some more work on her Xmas wall hanging while she was here. It is DD2's first attempt at piecing and a little applique and it's going pretty well. I think she should be very proud of it. So I had to show her the applique stitch but that was all the time I spent at my machine. Guess I'll have to make some progress on my PhD project during next week as I have a busy week planned and we are away for this weekend too.

It's still a work in progress !
~~~*~~*~~
I did find some time to make another mug rug this morning (please forgive me if you are mug rug'd out).. but this one is for a friend who follows a certain rubgy league football team here in New South Wales (Australia) called the "DrAgOnS" and their colours are red and white.... hence the colour choice of the rug. I teamed it up with a red mug, a red gift bag and I'll add some coffee and bikkies (cookies) before I give it to her this coming weekend. It's just a little bit of fun between Kath and yous truly.



And then this afternoon I whipped up another bag for the Cancer "Make a bag" project. On this one I appliqued a HaPPy and colourful FLoWeR... so I hope it helps to brighten someone's day.

I'm certainly not mug-rugged out - I think they are the perfect small project and I love the red and White. Really sweet bag!

Hi Cheryll - cute mug rug. Question: Why do you write some of your words with specific letters as capital letters and lower case letters? I'm sure there's a reason, but I don't know what that reason is.

You are so productive! I've been working on sewing a dress for my granddaughter. Now I remember why I dislike making clothes and LOVE making quilts. It is almost done...just need to finish the zipper and hem it. Then back to my Snowball quilt.
