So, on a quiet Sunday it was a blessing to come across the many How To posts on Karen's blog named Sew Many Ways. Her blog is a great read, make sure you've got brew (that's what we call a cup of tea). She has a large number of tutorials as well and they're really well set out - you can't go wrong when you follow her instructions.
A while back I signed up to participate in Quilting Gallery's mug rug swap and so I've also been busy making the two mug rugs to send off. We're fast approaching the deadline for posting. Fortunately, they actually have their binding on and just need eyes which I'll use some beads for. Will post pics of the completed mug rugs when they're done, posted and safely in their new home.
