Sunday Sewing



I had quite a few scraps left over from my last thread catcher/bird making session.  Since I didn't want to let any of that lovely Blueberry Crumb Cake fabric go to waste I started cutting it into 2-1/2" squares.  A few hours sewing, some pretty trim and voila!  Three mug rugs. 

I also had some squares left over from some mini charm packs Catherine gifted me and made this one too.  I must have been in a Blackbird Designs mood as these fabrics are from their Antique Fair line.

Next up on the agenda....more birds!

Wishing you all the best week ever with lots of sewing and stitching and whatever else your heart desires.  Remember to tell your loved ones "I Love You" not only this Tuesday but every day.  :o)

Very pretty mug rugs! You know, I'd never heard that term for them till a few months ago. Here they're all coasters.

I'm curious about the birds, Myra. Did you come up with the pattern yourself?
