Everyone in our house is feeling much better now. Thank you all for your kind words. It felt good to have you say you liked reading my blog because I was real. Despite my daily attempts to be a supermom, I am not. Why edit out the screaming toddlers and vomiting infants. Someone should get a good laugh out of it, right?
Now that Mother's Day has passed I can show you what I made for my mother and mother-in-law; the two women who have everything, need nothing and who are so crafty they could make everything themselves. Which makes them the hardest persons to get gifts for; unless you count the dads who give you zero ideas whatsoever. Seriously all the mothers ask for are grandbabies, pictures of grandbabies and visits from grandbabies. Instead I made them one of these.
These past few days I have sewn some random little things. Since kids were still on the mend and the house trashed from the week before there was very little time to sew, but I still had to make something to keep from going mad.
Modern Mini Quilt and made them into a mug rug. For those who don't know, a mug rug is smaller than a placemat and larger than a coaster; like just the right size for a cup of coffee and a bagel. It seems like a silly thing. I think crafters made it up so they could just make incredibly tiny quilts.I don't have the proper stuff to make it heat resistant so it shouldn't be a hot pad. Luckily, it perfectly fits on this table in my sunroom. So, a mug rug it is.
I also made Bruce. He belongs to Jimmy now.
Bruce has a mustache. Ron Swanson would be proud.
And ha, ha! I got beans and peas to grow. I actually think the first round were eaten. Hopefully this round will stay once I transplant them.
The final order of business is prepping for the Sew, Mama, Sew! Giveaway Day. I need your help for my giveaway. Would you rather win a Noodlehead envelop clutch or aMother Daughter vintage ruffled apron set?
