And in the meantime, I've been keeping myself busy with these nifty little inventions: Mug Rugs. Larger than a coaster and specifically designed to hold both your coffee mug or drink glass and a snack, these miniature quilts are great for using up scraps or testing new designs, quilt blocks, techniques, and motifs. Which is how I'm using them. In short order I imagine my home will be overrun and my friends will find themselves unwilling recipients of my creative floundering.
For a great, cute little tutorial on how to construct a mug rug, check out the one at Sew4Home.com.
