I can't believe a week has gone by , where does the time go anyway ? My dear little granddaughters Nila and Elise spent the weekend with us so I was busy playing checkers and monopoly and no sewing took place but that is just fine , I had a delightful weekend . Elise who is just four asked me if it was hard to sew , I told her no and that when she got a little older I would be happy to teach her to which she replied " Oh good Gammie because I want to be a fashion designer when I grow up" ,how precious is that :-)
So what did I work on you are asking , well I did get a few small things done since last week , first off I came across a pile of Christmas strings so proceeded to make mug rugs and I even had some left over bindings to use to finish them off.
Annette of In Stitches and Seams for a sweet little candle mat , To make the original pattern I needed six sections , well I had only four left so I did a little thinking and decided to reduce the pattern by 60% and voila here is my little version of Annette's pattern.
I also finished off a little wool pincushion I had started ,this is a free pattern by Terri of Whimsical Quilts
Needle and Thread Network , be sure to hop on over and take a boo at what everyone is doing this week .
