Congratulations to Chi in Japan!

We have our first really totally finished SAL quilt!
Chi is definitely a finisher. 
I love her machine quilting and the way it enhanced the streak of lightening setting.
She does intricate needlework as well, so make sure to visit her website.

Anne-Mette has finished her main blocks and just has the half blocks to make.
She plans a blue setting fabric like mine.
I am slowly working on my hand quilting. I know this will surprise you, but I got a little distracted with other projects. One of them is the Mug Rug craze going around blogland. So this morning's coffee had me making this.
It is for my DD, made from the scraps of her table runner.
Need to find a good mug to match it.

Another crazy week ahead with 3 classes, another tennis match (just in case you are wondering, I won last time!) and a long overdue coiffure. The following verse came in yesterday's electronic post from Rosie's grandson.
 "Gray hair is a crown of glory; it is gained by living a godly life."    Proverbs 16:31
Oh, boy! Now I am wavering on whether or not to color my hair!

I also love how Chi quilted her little quilt. I plan to work on blocks 5-8 this week, maybe I can get one done today. I have also been inspired by the "mug rugs" that have been appearing every where in blogland. I am going to try to get one made soon. Little projects like this are so much fun, quick and easy. Also, thank you for the lovely giveaways you showed on your last post. I am glad I follow.

Chi's quilt is so lovely! Beautiful choices for color and fabrics. And your mug rug is cute! I'm going to have to make one too.

Chi's quilt has turned out lovely and she has done a great job - quilting it by machine.
Your mug rug is cute. One can never have too many of them.
What a generous give away you have :-).

Congratulations on your tennis win!!! Hope you won this one too. Chi's quilt is wonderful! I love the colors of Anne-Mette's blocks. I am going to make my first mug rug this week if it the last thing I do!!! I feel like I'm missing out. I really like yours!
