I love mugrugs!
They are really just mini quilts, an excuse to get down and creative on a small scale. But they make great wee gifts too.
I recently made this one for my friend Sarah
, whose birthday I missed!
Sarah recently encouraged me to try out some new/modern hexie designs that have been floating around the Hex-a-long flickr group
. I was delighted with how this one turned out (check out a great tutorial for this hexagon here
If you are wondering 'why the monkey face?' it's not because Sarah has a particular fettish for them (at least I don't think so!), but this is her profile icon for her fab blog and flickr page.
If you've never visited Sarah's blog
- check it out! Sarah has an amazing ability to make even sewing disasters sound funny! She's a very talented quilter, writer, Brit Bee member & friend.
You may remember I signed up to the Small Goodies Swap being hosted by Fluffy Sheep
. This involves making a mugrug & small goodie for 2 people.
We've all now been assigned our partners - I'm really pleased with who I've got but I'm sworn to secrecy. All will be revealed at the end of September.
Suffice to say, I have already started on one of the mugrugs ....
....and have some ideas on what small goodies to make too.
All will be revealed in time!
Enjoy your bank holiday Monday, Brits.
