This past weekend while browsing quilt blogs, I ran across a post by Ryan Walsh of I’m Just A Guy Who Quilts about how to make a mug rug. Since I had been trying to figure out exactly what's the best size to make mug rugs… I finally found an answer!
So, instead of doing stuff that needs to get done… I made another mug rug, this time appx 7”x10” using stuff in my scrap bins.
I machine stitched down the binding b/c I’m either too lazy to hand stitch something that will be used and tossed in the wash frequently, OR… I would feel guilty hand sewing a quick project when I have so much else that needed doing… including a friend coming over for lunch! I called it “practicing stitching in the ditch!”
House Dragon shared that she uses a decorate stitch on her machine to sew down the binding... and a light bulb went on! So I had to try that too...
Speaking of LUNCH… I made the Chicken & Wild Rice Soup recipe from Crazy Vegas Mom’s blog.
True comfort food and especially nice on a chilly winter’s day... and great to take to work for lunch during the week!
