I made a few more mug rugs, finally. I don’t know where the time goes sometimes. The summer is quickly slipping away. I have been spending quite a bit of time working on my curriculum planning for my classroom. I did, however, work in some time to get some more mug rugs completed. I really like how these turned out . The first one has an antique lace doily to set your mug on. It is super girly and so adorable. If you are a fan of purple and polka dots and vintage, this is the mug rug for you.
I also made this one, using one of my “Fandango” by Kate Spain charm squares. I love the colors of this one. It is so bright and cheery. I used a log cabin design on the left (an old quilt block pattern). There are no fancy embellishments on this one, but I did use a thick, zig-zag stitch around the edge for some more texture.
Both of these are available to purchase from my Etsy store, if you are interested.
I’ve also been working on my Lilly of the Woods Fairy cross-stitch. It is coming along, just taking forever. I also realized that I’m missing some of the threads (mostly Kreinik metallics) that I need. Here is my progress from my last post on this project. Today I’m going to work on making a wall calendar for my classroom. I’ll take pictures to share later. Happy Crafting!
