I was getting ready to sew last night when I spied this fellow on my sewing machine.
Hey, wait a minute! He has my Aurifil thread sampler under his arm. Cheeky monkey! Whew! I rescued my thread. Now I wonder what this fellow's name is? Maybe he will tell me in time. I am sure you will see him again. You may want to suggest a name. I asked if it was Rumpelstiltskin but he just smiled and shook his head "no."
I solved the photo dilemma, although I still have the SD card stuck in my computer. (another SD card and a different transfer method)
So here is a picture of the fabric I got in the remnant bundle from fabric.com
I also made my first mug rug last night. It isn't perfect but it is great for me, I used my favorite color- blue. It was done as a challenge. I had five "rules/suggestions" which I could use all of /some of/ or even just one. I managed four out of five.
(1) I used only non-square rectangles. There are no "square" shapes in the piece. Try designing a quilt project without allowing any square shapes! I had to draw it out several times. Ha ha.
(2)I stuck with a monochrome color scheme.
(3)I used Pigma pens to add words and images to the finished product.
(4) NO borders were added.
All the measurements for cutting the fabrics are 1", 2" and 4" -that is raw cut. It is sewn with 1/4" seams. It is just right for my mug and a cookie or a couple of crackers.
I don't know if you can see all the words. It says "1, 2, 3 Coffee or Tea" "Have a cup" (drawing of cup and saucer) "Smile" (and a drawing of a smile) This was added AFTER it was finished with a BLUE pigma marker - in keeping with the monochrome theme.
