I spent a little time today making a mug rug. This one looks really good. I think I might put it on Etsy. I traced the leaves from actual leaves in my yard. Did a little thread sketching on them and then echo quilted the whole thing. The background is actually a piece of leftover fabric from curtains I made about 10 years ago. Scary to think I have fabric older than my children!!! Good news is I didn't have to buy anything! Maybe I can use up some of my scraps! I bought the binding for my Memory quilt. I plan on having it finished next week.
I saw this great idea on Quilt Times, it's a Christmas Quilt Along. Here's a link. Basically, you spend a day sewing for Christmas and post pictures. I can do that....actually I already have. The Memory quilt is a Christmas gift and the CD cover is a Christmas gift. I'm pretty sure someone will be getting a mug rug, I just haven't decided who! They are just so much fun to make.
