Work in Progress Week #41

So, I am going to cheer for myself for a moment. I have two celebrations. Yes that is right two this week. The first one is that I have a finish project to share today. The second celebration is that it is the end of NABLOPOMO. What is that you say. It is national blog posting month. If you were a follower at the beginning of November, you know that I joined in. 

The good news is that it is the last day of the month. Which means for you, no more of my posts each day. Phew... I was having trouble coming up with things to post about every day. I really have a new sese of respect for those of you who do that all the time. During this month only missed 2 days after I started a little bit late. I think that is pretty good, for the blog slacker I can be. Anyhow, now we will return to our regular schedule program of me only being creative sometimes :)

Lets get back to the more important celebration. I finished something. I finished my first mug rug. And the first mug rug that I have on my list for this Christmas.

mug rug 1 in use

This one is for one of my husbands co-workers. His co-worker is a guy. I had the hardest time coming up with something for a guy. I used the lazy angle ruler a couple of  kona brights charm squares and some kona for the neutral (which I could tell you the color, but this was before I started labeling).

mug rug back

The backing is some print, I just can't tell you which. The binding is from Curio by basic gray - asparagus needle lace to be exact. I am actually pretty proud of the machine binding. Best yet. The quilting kinda echos the piecing. Shh don't notice the mess ups.

Very fun very simple and my first mug rug.

My only other work in progress this week is my Kaleidoscopic quilt. I actually got a lot done with it. I just need the halves to become wholes.

  1. Your WIPs are awesome! I especially love the Rouenneries hexagons and the kaleidoscope. Hahaha, I love that you included a box of stacked fabric as a WIP. I usually don't consider a project a WIP until I've cut into the fabric. Otherwise, I'd be in Big Trouble.


Thank you for taking the the time comment. Please know that I read each comment and they all make me smile.
