If one is good...

...two is better!
I made another candle mat, this time using pinwheels.
I never do the same thing twice. 
This one is larger, and more appropriately sized for my snowgirl vignette!
My daughter actually loved the original and absconded with it.
The best part was binding it using my 'custom' binding clips from Merumo.
Aren't they just adorable!

I may have to make yet a third little quilted mat!
I think Kathie's original design is the best, only this time my finished HST's may be 1/2" instead of 1".
This guy needs a rug.
Found the frame on my road trip with the girls on Friday.
Perfect for my needlepunch project from Brenda Gervais.

And now I can share another mug rug.
This vegetable themed one went to a very dear quilting friend, Lin, as a Christmas gift.
I know she enjoys a cuppa joe each morning as she surfs blogland, and
I hope this mug and rug will be put to good use!


  1. The pinwheels look great in that little quilt too. It would make a lovely pair with the hst quilt.
    Lucky you, those custom binding clips are gorgeous and you could put them in your hair in between quilts!
    Your posts are always so motivating, they show so many new and varied projects.

  6. Adorable for sure! And good that your daughter liked something that you made. My daughter & I have different taste and quite often she does not care for my quilts. I make her some to her taste, though.

  7. Those little clips are darling that Merumo gave you! You have been a busy elf! What fun you have been having!
