Forgot about this blog.....

I totally forgot about this blog.  It's been a long time since a new photo ended up here!  I came across the sampler blocks being made by Penny this year and thought I'd post again and see if I can keep adding pictures of my students' work :-).  Enjoy.

Mug Rug insanity :-)

I've been making some mug rugs in the last few days to have on hand as little gifts. What a lot of fun these little gems are. They are meant to put on your desk or sewing table and will hold a mug and there is also room for a cookie or snack. This keeps your work surface clean and protected from spills. It can be thrown in the washer and dryer for quick clean up. You'll need several for your own desk :-).

What a lovely disaster I had in the sewing room working on these little mug rugs.

In the middle of the mess, I found my chocolate emergency kit LOL!

Some finished mug rug tops (they need binding yet):

If you would like to make mug rugs in class, I have all the materials ready to make as many as you like!

Pineapple paper pieced sample block

This is the 6" pineapple block that we will be using to learn paper piecing. This one is done in only two colours, but you can make fun designs using a different colour for each side or doing them totally scrappy!

The block looks totally different if you put it on point and three or five of these squares would make a lovely table runner:
