A little mug rug I made. I am sorry, my pictures are not sharp, my camera is in storage, and impossible to get to. So my mobile has to double as a camera


Thanks for looking.

Hi, I added a coaster with pink and purple, especially for the ladies who love purple! Thanks for looking.

Thank you. We get markers here, too. Never thought of that. I will definitely use it in future!

A nice design.
Why don't you trim your fabric top and bottom before stitching the final satin stitch, just don't cut the stabiliser. It gives far cleaner edges that way.

Thank you.

I can not bring the fabric in the hoop close enough to my eyes to see where to cut, and leave enough space to work the scissors - I have an eyesight problem. (I can no longer do hand embroidery, I am scared I might literally stuck the needle into my eye.)

I am sorry to hear that. In that case the precut parts are indeed the best solution. I am always afraid I'll miss a little bit.

Well done. Try angling your scissors just a bit toward the design. See if it helps getting a little closer.

Dear Anneliese,

You're doing really well. Keep at it and with practice you'll get better and closer at trimming the edges. Love Chris

Sorry about the untidy edges, I still have problems cutting close to satin stitches. It is an ITH coaster.
