"...in a time lacking in truth and uncertainty and filled with anquish and despair, no woman should be shamefaced in attemping to give back to the world, through her work, a portion of its lost heart." Louise Bogan, American Poet 1897-1970

Mug Rug

     Two days before Christmas I decided to make my BFF and neighbor, Kathy a Mug Rug. I had sooooooo much fun making this small gift!! I got to use some of my fancy machine stitches and I echo quilted from the fan out.  Echo quilting has always been my fav, but I haven't used it until this cute little mug rug. I'm hooked! Little things are fun and challenging. Don't wait as long as I did to try one. Go ahead. I bet you'll like it, too.

                                                                    approx. 7x11"

     Happy New Year everyone!!  May the new year bless you richly, Deborah

Autumn Four Patch

     Another top is complete!! I'm calling this one Autumn Four Patch and it is for my sister-in-law. 

     I now have completed, at least the tops, of all the quilts I started this year. Only three remain in the UFO category, all the rest are finished and have been given to whom they were made for.  Okay. So I still have some that are cut out from last year, but I don't want to talk about those right now. heh, heh.
     Here's hoping all your sewing projects for your holidays are near completion!
     Blessings, Deborah
