Small things can be fun, too

Even little things can be fun. Such as a mug rug created for someone special. This one is for one of the darling ladies that works in DD#2's office. Angel loves everything to do with Monkeys... so monkey fabric is it. I call this little project "Monkeying Around". She'll get a kick out of it.


Remember the bowtie blocks that so many of us made several months ago? I made some out of fruity/veggie fabrics and turned them into placemats... well, a lady who was visiting at Aretoy last week shared her clever idea... cakes! Is this cute or what? The border is the "latte" fabric. Coffee and cake, what could be better?!

That's all there is today; hopefully I'll have some fun pictures tomorrow. Until then I hope you have loads of time to stitch. . .

Quilty Hugs,

Love your newest fun fabric mats. Your kitty is so cute drinking from the sink. My kitty loved to drink from the sink faucet. She would wait for me to turn in on for her. Yes, I was her servant but gladly so. I enjoyed her love for 18 years. Blissful quilting...
