No Sew Zone!!!

Yes this has been me for the last two months in the NO SEW ZONE.. I have sewn a few things but nothing much to speak of. I finally settled down to business tonight and found the fabrics needed to do my Easter Mug Rugs.. I kept saying I needed to go to the fabric shop.. but I hate to spend the extra money for gas to drive, when I have a nice size fabric stash! I knew I better get in gear... the due date for the rugs are sneaking up on me fast.
I have all the fronts, backs and batting cut... Next is the sashing.. that won't take much to whack the strips off the yardage :) Fold and press... weeeeeeeeeee in one large swipe of the iron ;)
I finally decided on a design. After cutting out two sets of Appliques of the first design, I decided that it had too many small parts to make it nice for my partners. I will finish those two with free motion stitching. I will keep those for myself ..... just in case they turn out wonky! That's ok with me... sort of a Art Quilt meets Mug Rug ;) I went back to the drawing board and found another design that I really like and that is the one I will use ;)
I Hope everyone is having fun with their projects .. I can hardly wait to see them ;)
Happy Stitching!!
