Field of Colour...
I have finished the mug rugs for my SIL's birthday...
TaDa
a stack of ten...
 two stacks of five...
 a field of colour...
 I know some feel ''mug rugs'' are a waste of time!!!!!!!
but they are a quick easy gift and you can do so much with them... 
and?????
I had been thinking??????
that they could be made more ''manly'' by doing them in..........
football colours and appliqueing the teams name or nickname on them... 
so then Dad or Grandad wouldn't feel so left out while sharing a cuppa..... so stay tuned over the summer that is what I could be doing ready for the footy season...

I had won some Christmas fabric last year and wasn't quite sure what I was going to do with one of the pieces and while digging through my draw with all my ''off cuts'' of heat and bond I came across a piece that was for ''heavy'' projects... so I made Christmas parcel tags
all I did was put calico on the back and cut the edges with my zig-zag scissors...
OH......... my spider web quilt is back from the quilter...
stay tuned...
