Making a mug rug is like making a mini-quilt. It is tiny and easy to finish. I should make a few more to practice binding, as I definitely need the practice! The idea for this quilt just popped into my head, and I knew it would be fun. If I was a better artist, I would have created an actual person holding the kite, but instead, I simply hid the string behind the flowers. Mug rugs are also awesome because you can use up scraps or special fabrics.
I hand wrote the phrase and traced it in embroidery. It was fun to do, and I'll definitely do this again.
Speaking of contests, I won a skein of Sundara's luscious Silk Lace! Incredible! As you know, I've been on a yarn-buying hiatus since December 31, but winning yarn is okay! The Silk Lace is in the Beach Glass color, and I plan to knit High Seas with it! Thanks, Sundara!
