I’ve been doing some more Christmas sewing this week and fighting off a small cold. I’m going to win on both fronts. 🙂
I finished the Leg Lamp pillow by straight line quilting vertically and adding some fringe to the sides and it looks awesome.
An extra-large mug rug was completed. I used the 6 1/2 inch pattern of the Lucky Stars Block of the Month from last November. I thought it looked a little like a poinsettia and would be a good focal point for this mug rug.
There is such joy that comes with sewing this time of year. The colors, the prints, the designs – everything is just so calming and evokes such pleasant thoughts of friends and family. There is something so joyful in unselfish sewing and in knowing that you are putting love into all of these handmade goodies. I just love it.
