I'm trying to think back on what I did last week, and wondering why I only have one mug rug to show for my time. Pah.
Well here is that mug rug, anyway. It's for my lovely friend Emily who recently started a new job (after a fairly long search and I'm so happy for her). She asked me to make her one, and told me what kind of fabric and colours she likes and I went from there.
I had a dilemma with the colour of thread to use for the quilting and I am SO HAPPY that I chose some yellow 30 wt rayon thread I won in some doorprize draw many moons ago. It mimics the gold accents in the fabric absolutely perfectly if I do say so. And if I had a better camera with an actual macro setting, you would be better able to see that I quilted (what I hope looks like) bamboo shoots and leaves in the plain area. I'm super pleased with it, and I hope Emily is too.
And that's it!
Oh wait, I made the nametag, too. Whew - TWO things! I feel soooo much better now (sarcasm).
Not much of a WiP report from me, but there are lots over at Lee's!
