My first Mug Rugs! I needed a hostess gift for tonight and didn't have any (good!) ideas. A couple of gals from the friendshipblockswap group had this great idea. I made these up this morning. Super easy, quick and fun! The fabric and coordinating card, envelope and bag are all from Stampin' Up. I love having everything match! Mug Rugs
I wake up in the morning feeling like....Martha Stewart.
I have all these great ideas, things I want to do, crafts I want to try. Then I think, hmm, next Tuesday would be a good day, or next Friday I should have time to try that. Well what happened to last weeks plans for today? I am putting things off again. So today is my next week.
Today I am painting the bathroom, making a batch of soap and choosing 3 more fabrics for lap quilts!
Can I squeeze in an hour of housecleaning? Pretty ambitious...I better get hopping!!
11 am: ACK I have no paint roller covers! I am doing all the brush work on the edges, but it has taken me 2 hours so far. And I thought I could do the WHOLE room in 3 hours!! Doh!
12ish:Done with the brush work! Rolling the main walls have to wait for the cover... Off to make soap.
2:30 3 batches of soap made-just waiting for the last one to trace....it is taking forever!!!
Evening: Got the bathroom painted, but doh! it needs 2 coats, so the whole thing all over tomorrow! Chose 4 fabric combos for lap quilts, and even got in about an hour of cleaning. Not sure what gave me the second wind this evening, but it may have been the espresso chocolate bar R brought home as my gift :)
One of the yahoo groups I belong to (it is all about swaps!) is holding a Block Lotto.
Each month, you may make up to 4 blocks in a particular pattern and color, then one winner is chosen to receive all the blocks. This is my entry-love the blue fabric!
July 1: Didn't win this month-the block will be mailed off to a new home.
So I have been slowly working on my blocks...Really I have!
I am doing the redwork on Block 4, just finished Block 7, and I am half done on Block 8.
But the Blocks just posted are 43-46! I do have some catching up!
We'll see how they go this summer, as I generally do hand work while at after school activities.
Less sewing, more outside in the sun (please come out again soon!)
