A Little Birdy Told Me...

I'm still making mug mats. Can you even believe it? Well, I do have a method to my madness. I'm making them as gifts. I'm not going to show you more of this one right now, but it's all finished and ready to go to its new home.
I also worked a little more on the Pure Table Quilt. I'm having fun piecing the borders because I only had charm squares and fat quarters of the Pure line, along with one jelly roll of Moda Basic in white, to work with. I admit it's a bit of a challenge.
I do have the fabric for the backing, but I'm still deciding if I'm going to cut some of it for the front and piece the back or not. I'm going to do another strip of white next, and then decide which fabrics I'll use next.

I hope you're all doing something fun today. Especially if you live where there's a lot of snow right now. Gosh! I can't even imagine living in snow again. Although, I fondly remember hot chocolate, a roaring fireplace and a couple of dogs lying on the carpet. I loved the days I spent working in my northern studio with the sun reflecting off the snow and brightening up my workspace.

I hope you have something to do that makes you smile today. Warm hugs from our home to yours.

Hi Donna, Your work is just beautiful. I love the colors. Where up north did you live? The snow is beautiful, but a pain sometimes, we got over 8 inches in Michigan. Have a wonderful week and I hope you are feeling better. Hugs, Terri

Good Morning Donna!!! That has to be my favorite mug mat so far!!!!!!! Just beautiful.

We have about 6-8 inches of snow where I'm at. My dog is part Australian Shepherd and her coat is long and thick. She absolutely loves the snow. I'll have to post a few pictures of her. She loves to bury her face in the snow and then looks at you, face covered in snow, as if to say "What? Why are you laughing? Are you laughing at me? Why? It's not like I've done something silly? Is it?"

Have a great day!!!

This quilt is just gorgeous, Donna, and your mug mat peek is also beautiful. I'm sure whoever she is, she will love it! I saw your poor pup's swollen face. OMG!

Glad you are busy sewing and hopefully feeling much better. Your mug mats are so wonderful you should keep making them. How lovely your Pure quilt is coming along. I feel refreshed now that I have visited your blog. Normally I read yours first each morning however today got sent in another direction and here it is afternoon. Inspired and refreshed I thank you Miss Donna. Happy creating...

Glad you are feeling better and hope you continue to improve.

Your mug mat is just too pretty to use. I would probably place a coaster or something over it to protect it while in use!
