Hanging in there…

Although it has been a hot summer, I am hanging in there. This past

week has been interesting, to say the least. It was our 20th wedding

anniversary and we spent it in the hospital; my husband fractured his

ankle so it was swollen pretty badly. I am sure that he will make it

up to me later on.

This is a wall hanging I have had on my design wall for well

over a year. I thought that it was time to complete it.

Only 7 more houses to add; I must note that I found this

picture on Pinterest. Because I am making it for myself and not

selling it for profit, I thought it was ok to make.

I do respect copyright laws and peoples’ creative property.

Mug Rug

I must admit that this is my first mug rug that I have ever made.

They remind me of fabric postcards, proably due to their small size.

The back of my mug rug. I finished the edge with a tight zigzag stitch.

Inspiration came from Pinterest. It has such great ideas that one can

tweak yourself. I used interfacing for the tea bag and I used black

fusible interfacing for the tea leaves inside the tea bag.

Another fabric postcard that I made. The circles are supposed

to be hay bales in a field. I painted the grey fabric that makes

up the buildings. A sharpie marker was used to add the

windows in the buildings.

Back of my fabric postcard

Using a stamp on the back of the postcard really helps to

finish it off and look more professional.

It was alot of fun making and quite quick too. I may

have another idea for a fabric postcard.

What have you been creating this week?

Have a great week.
