Mug Rugs

I needed to make some more adjustments on my new Featherweight before I could really use it.  I had trouble with the belt slipping and then my needle started to hit the needle plate.  After I made these adjustments, I wanted to see how it sewed.  It is a peppy little machine.  Peppier, I think, than my others.  I made these two little mug rugs with it.  I work remotely so have little contact with the other people in my department.  I decided to make some of them mug rugs.  They aren't quilters, so I am sure I will have some explaining to do when they receive them.  The women in my little quilt club hadn't heard of mug rugs either.  I spend too much time reading blogs!

Spent the rest of the weekend watching two of my grand kids while their parents went to a marriage retreat through their church.  It was tiring, and I am glad I don't have to do it all the time, but I miss them tonight!
Elijah had soccer practice-he is really enjoying himself.  Madison played with other little girls while their siblings practiced.
