Hi Cuties, I have not posted anything for awhile, so I thought that you would all like to see what I have been doing over the past few months.

My friend gave me some material scraps, and this is what I have made for her.

No patterns were used for the Bag or Mug Rug.

A Small Bag to hold you Coffee/Tea Mug in.
A Mug Rug and a Mug Cosy Cover.

Stunning work as usual Lorraine. I have first hand evidence of Lorraine's sewing finesse. When we visited Lorraine and her husband last year in Adelaide she gave me lots of her handmade goodies. She is an amazing seamstress and artiste! Love Chris

The set came out so pretty, Lorraine. I like her scraps she gave you. She must sew too, if she had scraps, or they were her mothers. If she does sew, what kind of sewing does she do, maybe quilts?
I keep wanting to make Nora and Avery a dress alike, but other projects have taken my time. It will be winter here, if I don't hurry up-lol
Nice to see you post-Toogie

I love your color pallet. Did you have a pattern for the cup cozzie or did you design it yourself and is it a wrap around one?

Hi Barbaric, Yes I did have a rough pattern for the cozzie and yes it does wrap around and attach with a button and elastic, but everything else I designed myself. Thankyou for your kind words.
