Hello, my friends. Are you as sad as I am that this holiday weekend is wrapping up, and we have to return to the real world tomorrow? :-(
Well, here are a few pics to bring some you some cheer. The Scrappy Mug Rug Swap has wrapped up, and I have both sent and received my goodies.
I received this adorable owl mug rug from Dena (a.k.a. denawayne on Flickr). Isn't she cute?
Dena also generously added several fabric cuts from the same line she used to make the mug rug. How thoughtful was that?
Thank you, Dena, for making this lovely gift for me - I will enjoy using it every day. :-)
Here is what I sent my partner, who was Me1issa - a Double Dresden Plate. The outer ring blades were cut in 3-1/2" lengths, and the inner ring of blades in 2" lengths. I think the result is pretty effective and a slightly different take on a traditional pattern - if I don't say so myself!
I also included a few goodies...
Enjoy the rest of the holiday weekend! I'll be back tomorrow with a tutorial round up (topic yet to be determined - ideas?).
