A change in plans

I have a couple of more finishes to share and I also wanted to tell you there is  a change in plans I will not be taking part in the sale afterall . Why you ask well , we are having some special visitors , my oldest son Rob and  his family are arriving this afternoon from Ontario and will be staying overnight so needless to say they have top priority as I do not see them very often .
First I made this Christmas stocking after seeing the cute one that Annette made , it seemed like a perfect plan and to make it even better when I was searching through my Christmas fabrics I found a whole lot of strips I had cut for something previously , great I thought , half the work is done.As  I was digging in this same container I came across this fabric with some cute little Christmassy items printed on it so I immediately thought oh another mug rug , it had to be a bit larger than a regular mug rug but hey at Christmas we like to have lots of treats right ;-) So this little mug rug was born from that idea .
 So on this blustery wet and wild Friday I am busy preparing for Rob , have a great day and thanks for stopping by and Lest We Forget on this Remembrance Day.
hugs Sheila
