It feels like Christmas in Ta Town :)

I have been working on Christmas blocks.. and both of my Christmas block sets are complete. I will have to post photos of those this weekend.. so keep and eye on this post for up dates ;) I also started my Mug Rugs for the Mug Rug swap. I have all of the appliques ironed down and the layers pinned together. I need to start the stitching around the appliques now. They are cute the way that they are right now but I want to add something to take them for ok.. to wow!! I think I have figured out just the right thing :)
I also have to start on a Holiday Apron.. I love to make aprons ;) I have some ideas in mind already. I would say but I don't want to spoil the surprise for my swap partner ;)
Tonite was the perfect nite to sew.. It was raining all day and the temps dropped. It started snowing on my way home from work. What a perfect nite to stay in and eat beef Stew and work on my Mug Rugs.
Since Nadine and I thought of this idea of hosting a Mug Rug swap...... I have had a lot of ladies asking me how to make Mug Rugs.. I can tell you these little guys are taking the sewing groups and the internet by storm.. If you haven't made a Mug Rug yet.. what you waiting for??? They are so darn fun, easy and fast...
Don't forget ladies.. the due date for the Christmas blocks~~~is quickly approaching!

Mug rugs are taking over my sewing room - You're right - too fun. A great size to experiment with too. I have had fun playing with different colours and styles this week.

Hey, I sent my Santa blocks to you on Tue (11/9) evening. So I would have thought you would have them by now...but I don't see them marked as received on the side bar...I didn't insure/track it and now I am worried!! I hope you get it soon, or have received and and just haven't had the time to mark it as received.
