Happy almost 4th of July everyone. I am in the mood as I have been working with Red, White and Blue fabrics.  Finished the Mug Rug project for DD and her office crew... except it turns out she wants Coasters, NOT MugRugs. OK, I'm easy. I made Coasters - finished the last 13 today. Plus... I made one Mug Rug anyway so she could see what one looks like.

For Lori and others who haven't made these before,
here is a link to a tute I wrote in 2010:
Of all the coasters, the 3 above are my faves. And below is the one lonely Mug Rug. The red looks almost pink in these pictures, but it is RED.

Today I have included two dishes for "Menu Fun."  They are below my signature. I think this is a good idea to put them there. This way those who are interested can see them and those who are not won't be bothered. Good?

That's all for today. Until next time. . .

Quilty Hugs,


Note: The pasta is whole wheat. The 'saute' is accomplished with either water, veggie juice, veggie broth, etc... NO oil.

Hey Sweetie,

Love the coasters and rug. I use the coaster you sent me every day. It sits on my desk with a cup of coffee or ice tea on it.

I must make "our" DD Laura some embroidered mug rugs.

Keep up the new eating habits. You"'re doing great!
