Getting Caught UP ;O)

I am finally getting caught up on Swaps and other UFO's Speaking of UFO's here are two of them completed.

Spring of 2012 Mug Rug swap.
I tried my had at some thread sketching on this mug rug.
It turned out OK... Could be much better!
I would like to continue to learn and improve on thread sketching
I would love to make art Mug Rugs ;O)
Or any type of Altered Quilting Arts.
I think it takes a skill just like painting.. and I am no Artist!
This thread sketching might be a struggle for me!
This mug rug is the one I shipped out.. not the one with thread sketching.
Sorry haven't taken a photo of that one.

Sorry about the poor Photos.. house lighting is awful!

I held a Christmas stocking swap in 2011. I made a beautiful Stocking with this little Snowman Applique. I liked the little Snowman so much I made a few mug rugs for myself. It took me a while to complete the handwork. (Binding)  My fingers are still not working like they should.

I made an adorable Sun Bonnet Sue that I sent out as a thank you gift to a sweet helpful internet friend. Of course I forgot to take a photo of her.

 Here is my Little Sue.. I found a photo of her that the owner had posted ;O)

 I guess there was a reason I forgot. I need to make one for me. I have all her parts and pieces cut out. I just need to stitch them together. WHY yes I have one of every mug rug that I have made so far. I think I make two just because..... It's so hard to give up the finished project. Most of my friends know... I just love mug rugs!!! You can do so many things with them and they are so very fast to make. It's not like all the Beautiful Quilt Blocks that I have laying around that need to be put in to a quilt. That will come soon I hope. My limitations has kept me from completing my Holiday Quilts. Completing the quilts was on my list of things I wanted to complete this year.
Speaking of Quilts... thank you to all that has sent me beautiful Christmas Fabric Scraps for my piano boarder for one of many Holiday Quilts. I can still use donations... send me an email if you would like to donate. I was just looking at the donations this morning and wishing I felt up to sewing them together. Maybe in Oct after the surgery....
Anyway ladies.. I hope your days are filled with Lots of Sewing and completing UFO's.
