Great news  The Dead Mule School of Southern Literature has printed my short story, The Fruitcake.  I'm so excited this is the first time one of my stories has been printed.  So run on over to the Dead Mule and read my story. 

Merry Christmas

Mug Rug 2

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas......

I had an idea for another mug rug, using one of my favorite fabrics- outgrown jeans.  Not my jeans, my girls little bitty jeans.  The jeans originally had a red plaid cuff, so I used that an inspiration.
It has a Christmas feel to it, without being overtly Christmas.  I wanted one that could be used all winter.  The two large pieces are 5 x6 inches.  Then I just added a border, rickrack and binding.  I love the fact that the pocket can hold a treat.

It went together fast and was lots of fun.  I see a version of this going to AAQI in the future.

Happy Quilting
