Although we had to work at the apartments yesterday, it wasn't one of those marathon work days and the Girls behaved extra well. We got home about 5 pm and had a quick bite of dinner and watered the flowers. Today I can move as slow as molasses and play in the sewing room a little.
Since I finished the Luna Notte II quilt top I haven't been sewing much. Friday I thought I should use the embroidery machine to make sure it still works, so I stitched out a few mug mats. When my sister-in-law was here last weekend she fell in love with the one I use at my desk, so she went home with one and I made a mental note to make a few more to send her.
These are made entirely in the hoop (ITH) and they stitch out in 10-12 minutes. Once they are stitched all you do is trim around the outer stitching. The coffee cup design is my favorite, but there are 20 or more designs to choose from so you can coordinate the embroidered design with your fabric. I'm quite fond of the green/high heels fabric ~~~~ can you tell? This is a nice scrap buster project.
I hear Jeff making coffee, so I'm off to help him wake up.
Wishing you a wonderful Sunday!
