Oh boy - it has been so hot in Sydney for so long now that I just don't feel like doing anything much, especially if I have to go outside. Thankfully we are supposed to get a cool change tomorrow - hooray! At least I have still been able to sew. This week I have completed two mug rugs. I think it is OK to post about them as my partner in the mug rug swap doesn't know who I am and therefore won't read my blog. These are for the Mug Rug Swap being coordinated by the Quilting Bloggers Gallery. Love it. Haven't done a swap like this before. I guess you could say I am a swap virgin! Anyway, my recipient, who I won't name, just in case, is overseas so I decided that I would make one Aussie Mug Rug and one fun one. The Aussie one features the kookaburra which is the bird in the centre of the star. I love them - they sit on the fence or in the trees around my house and laugh at us all the time.
Now I am all organised for my month of sewing red scrappy Saturdays. Yippee! And after all the cutting sorting and ironing - I want to sew - so.........bye for now..........Happy Stitching!
