Gearing up for the Holidays

First, I have to say that the camera I bought in Japan almost 6 years ago is biting the dust. I noticed that the pictures I have taking lately have all come out terrible. This is probably the last time I will use this camera which is good because I treated myself to an iphone which should come this week. YAY, iphone!

I read other blogs and find them invigorating and inspiring. I have seen all the mug rugs and thought I should get in on it! I think they will make great gifts and of course, I had to make one for me. For those of you who know me and for those of you who don't: the blueberry fabric is starting to become my signature fabric. I try to use some of it in all my quilts, if possible.

So here are the beginning of my mug rug phase, side one and side two. I am flying out of here and will be hand quilting them on the plane. They better not take my needles.

I was thinking of making mug rugs for Christmas this year and then remembered I made placemats last year. Now I have to rethink. Looks like you have a good start.
