Mug Rug Swap ...

Good morning to you from Hey Grandma!

I look out the window at the Sun shining down on the snow we had Tuesday. Another blanket of diamonds! Sooooo beautiful! Heard this morning where will be in the mid 50's early next week ... hmmm, you just never know what the weather is going to do!

Here is a picture of the two Mug Rugs I made for a Mug Rug Swap I entered. Mine travel to Washington .... I anxiously await to see where my two come from.

These were so much fun to make! I am making more to sell in sets of two at Willow Mesa. I think I am going to have several different categories like Basket Series, Bird Series, Dish Series .... Mix things up with patterns and colors ... should be fun.

I am still looking at the blocks and fabrics (now on top of the pile) with the Sampler Quilt .... Looking isn't making up the blocks though right? LOL I'll get there!

Hey Grandma! wishes you all a wonderful day ... I need to get back to some Domestic Goddess type duties and then to the sewing room!

The sun may be shining, but DANG! It's cold! Odd to think that we get over a 100 degrees in the summer with this cold thing going on ....

So much the better, I suppose. It keeps me in the house creating, which is where I want to be anyway! LOL

I finished the knit project? What do you think? I am very happy with it! It has been mailed to it's Birthday gift location, and I started another one to sell on Willow Mesa. Actually, because the pattern was so quick and fun, I'm going to make a few out of different weight yarns for different looks. Oh, and meet Babette! She'll be hanging around from time to time to help display.

Remember the Sampler Quilt I was making before Christmas? Do you have to think back pretty hard? It's been a while, huh? I pulled the project to the top of the pile it was in .... I really want to get back to working on that. Progress will be pictured soon ...
