Mug Mat Swap...
This is the package of goodies I mailed to my Mug Mat swap partner. I had fun creating these for Terry. Thank you Donna of Brynwood Needleworks for organizing and hostessing this fun swap.
I have always loved fabrics. I like to feel them. I am pretty careful when I select fabrics for colors and coordination. But...I must be dyslexic when it comes to sewing them together. Oops...upside down does not do it for me.
Here I am frogging. It must be right or I cannot continue.
Okay now. All going in the proper direction. I do really like the fabrics and colors in this selection.
I actually made Terry two mug mats just in case she wants to sit with a friend and enjoy a cuppa and a snack.
Here is another set I sewed for Donna our hostess. She and her husband really enjoy music so I selected music themed fabrics.
I am very grateful I entered this swap for it challenged me and I learned how to sew binding on like a tiny miniature quilt. Donna liked her surprise mats. This will be the year of mug mats as gifts I am thinking. It meets my happy factor of sewing and fabrics and fun.
It is amazing to me that this is already the first week of April. Mr. C and I spent a few days in Sonoma and Novato to enjoy some CSRG (Classic Sports Racing Group) auto racing. There were so many priceless fabulous cars and everyone was very friendly. The weather was beautiful...except the wind! Allergies and sinus infection not so much fun now.
Lots of birthdays to celebrate in April...family and friends.
You will find me busy cleaning house and Mr. C outside cleaning and mowing and blowing. We are hoping to have a Broker Open House and find a buyer for our newly reduced pricing. We remain optimistic. We have been excellent stewards of this home and property for almost 20 years and it is time for us to move along and let someone else enjoy our labors here.
Prayers for all affected by horrific weather conditions across our nation and world.
I'll take short breaks and try to visit each of you. Happy Spring and Birdies Singing...
