I have to admit that it feels a bit shallow blogging about the joy of sewing in light of the tragedy in Connecticut a few days ago and the resulting mourning and sorrow. I know that our prayers are with each an every person and family affected by this heinous act. I pray for God's grace, peace and comfort. The sorrow that this act brought into a community and our nation is unfathomable.
We had a slow weekend, but I worked a little on some rug mugs that resemble a fingerprint. I found these designs at www.secretsofembroidery.com They come in a wide rage of designs, but I bought just three: the coffee cup, a heart and a spiral. These little mats are nice to hold a cup of tea or coffee and a few cookies.
These take about 15 minutes from start to finish and are a good way to use up scraps. They measure about 5 x 6.5 inches. One or two of these are cute rolled up and placed in a mug with some teabags or hot cocoa mix. A quick and thoughtful gift.
Until next time, I wish you Peace.....Barb
