Merry Christmas to Me?


Last night was the Minneapolis Modern Quilt Guild Christmas social and mug rug swap.  Yesterday turned into one of those days...unplanned company, too many phone calls, my 4th grader had two tests to study for and a huge amount of homework for his HP math class all to do last night, and I wasn't exactly a 100% anyway, etc. - needless to say, I just couldn't make it. 

So I guess that means the mug rug I made for the swap is for me?  In the midst of Christmas shopping and a bit of gift sewing, it's kind of exciting to have a tiny quilt that's mine.

(For inquiring minds, I used Thangles for the 1" finished HSTs w/ Basic Grey Basics fabric as the HST backgrounds and Kaufman Quilters Tweed in the fiesta colorway for the body of the mug rug.)

Well, life happens sometimes. Your mug rug is darling and sometimes it's nice to actually keep what you've made!

Merry Christmas!
