I've been busy, I had a birthday last week! It was wonderful, the whole family went out to dinner. I had such a great time. I may be older but I don't know about wiser sometimes! I do feel the older part! I wouldn't go back and change a thing. I love my life, amazing husband, wonderful kids, and terrific grandchildren! Oh, and my parents and in-law's all great people, too.
I finally made these cute little mug rugs. I used the tutorial from Jodi Neslon and the machine binding tutorial from Pat Sloan for the binding. Of course, I couldn't follow the mug rug tutorial exactly how it was written (just like I can never leave a recipe alone) I always have to change something. I added a brown tree trunk to the tree because I can't stand tree's floating in air (how do they get there?) and my mug rugs are bigger, I have bigger mugs (no laughing)! And I added gold garland with my free motion quilting set on a tight zig-zag stitch and lots of other free motion quilting. These were lots of fun. They aren't perfect but neither am I!
I thought I would include a couple pictures of my stained glass. I made these a couple years back. With the grand kids living with us, I have had to put the stained glass tools and supplies away so that the grand kids don't get hurt. Stained glass has a lot of dangerous chemicals and of course glass is sharp! We don't have a good workshop space for it that is secure at this time. I liked doing 3-D type pieces like these but I also did panels, too.
I will put up some pictures of our Christmas tree soon. Here is a picture of my granddaughter singing at her pre-school Christmas performance. Isn't she cute?
Here's my grandson at the same performance, I love his hat because it says I believe in Jesus! Both kids did great!
I hope your projects are all getting done. Have a wonderful day!
