Busy Sewing...


The bindings for the mug rugs are cut and pressed.  


Here is my helper, Artemis, keeping me company as I sew.  He looks sweet and very comfortable, but don't let the sweet face fool you.  His tail is twitching which means I am annoying him with my picture taking.


The mug rugs are all quilted and trimmed and ready for bindings.  I have been adding the bindings and realized that I always get anxious when it comes to sewing the finished ends of the binding together.  It always works out fine, I just start to feel anxiety when I get close to that step.  With this project, I had 9 moments of anxiety, but by the last one I did feel a little bit better about the process.

If you missed the first part of this process, you can check out my previous post here:  Mug Rugs!!!

Have a great weekend!

  11. Hi Candace, I love your blog. You are a very talented lady! I was wondering if you could tell me who the designer is of the gray and white scalloped fabric in the very top picture of this post. I love it and can't find it. Anyway your blog and beautiful quilts inspire me to keep sewing.

    Thank you. Taflucas@yahoo.com

  15. Hi Candace, I'm so glad I found you over at bystephanielynn.com! I really love the quilts you've done. I've been sewing since I can remember, and have actually started TWO quilts now, but have yet to finish one. :( I'm so amazed by the fact that you not only start them, but you get them done! You're so inspiring! Can't wait to see more!
