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.
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).
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.
Here is the rest that I just haven't even touched.

There are more, I am sure, but I don't have time to track them down or I don't have pictures of them.
