It’s snowing, there are about 50 sparrows, juncos and finches at my feeders making enough noise to drown out an excited class of kindergarten children, Ginger is curled up on my lap, I am still stuffed from the breakfast I made of scrambled eggs and veggie “sausage” and I had my first nap of the day before noon. I think I need another one! So I guess it really is Christmas.
This little mugbag wasn’t on my original Christmas list, but I figured that my best friend deserved something. We don’t usually exchange Christmas gifts, but I seemed to be making bags for everyone else this year… This cute little carrying bag for a tea cup came from Red Brolly's bliog.Scroll down to the bottom of the page and you’ll find the free pattern there. It took me a day to make.
My friend loved these fabrics when she saw them in a bad I’d made for someone else, and I had just enough left to make a small project like this.
Only trouble is, I don’t have a cup small enough to fit comfortably inside this. Everything I have is too big. She’ll either have to find her own mug or wait until I can find one that fits.
So that’s it for the Christmas sewing for now. I still have one bag and two lap quilts I’d like to make for gifts, but I have less than a week to get my December FMQ Challenge finished – I’d hate to not complete it after coming so far. Everyone who knows me is used to getting their Christmas presents at all time of the year. If I get them out before the end of the year, I’ll be doing well.
Merry Christmas to each and every one of you! Until next time,
