Sneaking in a little sewing time.............

Family left to go visit my dad so I used the time to start some red mug rugs.  The next show at Ciel Gallery in Charlotte NC is called "Red" and my daughter said they would like some mug rugs for it.  I have the light from the window coming in from the right and it shows the quilting on the top 2 really nicely but the prints don't show up.  I pieced the bottom 2 on the batting and backing so they were quilted as I pieced.
While my daughter made 2 pies and I was listening for the dryer to stop I pieced 2 mug rugs with Christmas fabrics, again mostly red.

You certainly captured the beauty of RED ! Every one is a fun mini, mini quilt. Your double vision has had to improve with by the looks of those mug rugs. They are absolutely stunning.

Multi tasking!!! They do look beautiful and I'll bet it felt good to stitch a little.

I remember a very special packet of scrappy reds that arrived at my house a few years ago -- "a happy" when I desperately needed one.

Your mug rugs are GORGEOUS!!

It is so great to see that you are able to get back to your quilting again since I know what an integral part of your life that is.
I know that if I can't quilt for several days I feel at a loss.
Cheers to you!

Beautiful mug rugs in my favorite color! I'm sure they are even prettier in person.

I enjoy making small projects. I will be making red,white and blue coasters and table runner and maybe place mats for a Christmas gift.

Love, love, love RED!!! Mug Rugs, that is what I was going to make for gifts. Must get to them soon. Thankfully they are small and easy to make. They make a great gift.

You have an attractive group of grandchildren. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
