A gift for Luna's teacher
Together with Luna I made this sweet mug rug for her teacher's birthday this Wednesday. Luna did the Hedgehog embroidery and has worked on and off on her project for a couple of months at least. I think she did a great job!
The cute pattern is from Sublime Stitching and most of the floss she used is from Sublime Stitching too. I added the wonky star block and thought the handwriting fabric I used for the star was especially nice for a teacher's gift. And not just the star is wonky: the free motion 'leaves' around the hedgehog came out not quite as perfect as I had planned. ;)
The backing fabric is one I scored at the 'ugly' fabric swap at the Double Dutch Quilt meeting I attended recently. Obviously it's not ugly at all but I know it's former owner did not know what to do with it and I'm glad I could put it to good use now.
Moving on to the winner of the Three Kitchen Fairies hexagon templates. The Random Generator has chosen Sue Vaughan as winner. Congratulations! I hope you will enjoy Paloma's hexagon templates as much as I do. Sue, I will pass your e-mail address on to Paloma and she will contact you for your address etc. Many thanks to all who entered and please consider buying a pack of hexagons in Paloma's shop.
I have a busy week ahead with an interesting commission that needs my full attention and traveling to London this Friday. Eeep!
