Weekend Update

How is your weekend going?  We are relaxing at home listening to the rain.  We have been getting a lot in the past week, but have been under serious drought conditions since the beginning of last year.  Needless to say, the rain is very welcome!

Here are a few sewing updates before the start of a new week and new projects.

My gift for my grandmother is packaged and is in the hands of the postal service.

If you missed the posts about the mug rugs, you can view them here and here.

She loves soft blues, so I tied it with a pretty blue ribbon.  I love ribbons about as much as I love quilts!

I had to take a short detour from my Half Moon Modern quilt to work on a short project.  My 4 year old son wanted some pillows out of Lightning McQueen colors, but I couldn't use anything other than red and white.  I could not use Lightning McQueen fabric and orange and yellow were not allowed (Lightning is red with a little orange and yellow)...these were all his instructions.  His favorite colors are red and green, so he chose green for the back.  What can I say he has a process and he knows what he wants!

These are almost complete and I will show you an update tomorrow.  The green fabric is in the washer as we speak.  It is a very vibrant bright green that tends to run so I threw it in the washer.

One more quick update.  My husband sent this picture to me of his desk at work.  He loves the coaster I made for him.  Glad it was a hit.  Of course I didn't feel any pressure making something for my husband (implied sarcasm).

**Note his koozie - representing Texas A&M, the Fighting Texas Aggies, Whoop!

You can find a pattern to make 13 mug rug variations here on my Etsy blog.

I digress...what projects are you planning for the week?

Happy Sewing!

  2. Hi Candace. Wet here too..and cold. Thanks for your mug rug inspiration. I have made my first ones. Not as pretty as yours...a little more office orientated. Yours are gorgeous.
