April Showers Mug Rug Hop


It is time for another blog hop with Madame Samm and Erin our cheerleader.  I've really been enjoying all the mug rugs made this week.  As a matter of fact, I now have more than one on the design wall.  
Life has been a little crazy around here lately, so I thought a little spring happiness was in order.  I was able to use my blanket stitch on my sewing machine, a little hand embroidery on the eyes and antennae, some machine quilting, and then hand binding (I soon realized is rather difficult on something so small).  What fun to be able to use a little bit of all those different aspects of quilting and have a finished "mini quilt."  


                                FRIDAY, APRIL 12th
