TODAY..

... Josh and I have been busy, we have been in and out ... including taking the dogs for a LONG walk... and now he and the dogs are trying (not very successfully) to keep the snoring down to a low level!!

We also had rather a large tea.. that I think was Josh's downfall lol x

I have taken advantage of this, and while I was making tea I  cut out and worked on my latest mug mat...


OK lets be honest it will hold THE LOT..


cup saucer AND plate xx lol x...


I so like this block..


I have been practising my machine quilting as well..(and the backing fabric is fun xx)


Keep smiling

Backing fabric is great. Am in process of making some 'mini' mug mats myself. Yours puts mine to shame!

This looks lovely -)

Wonderful! I am right into making mug rugs of any size at the moment. Small table mats, large coasters, call them what you will. They are satisfying to make cause they get finished quickly.
Love your quilting on them.

Mug rug is great and love the backing fabric. I so love these small projects in the summer when I would rather be outside most of the time but want to keep my hand in. We are swamped by cycling - still one more day to go - our village is surrounded and we cannot even get out of our road!

That is a really striking block - I can see a quilt with those blocks separated by plain blocks. Thanks for sharing!
