Doxie Love - A New Mug Rug from Amy Made That

Hello, Friends!
Are there any dog lovers out there?
Do you especially love dachshunds???
I've got something sweet to share with you!

I happen to know of a special long haired doxie named Oscar,
whose mommy had a birthday.
I thought I'd stitch up this little mug rug, just for her, 

I've had this fabric in my stash for a few years.
It came from JoAnn and I found it irresistible.
We had a miniature dachshund in my family,
when I was growing up.

A New Sponsor! Kimberly's Fabric Stash from Amy Made That

Hello, Friends!
I hope everyone made it through the
Blizzard of 2016.
So many of us in the USA were affected!
Here at my house we had about 8" of new snow.

I kept busy throughout the storm by sewing,
as I'm sure many others did.

I made (yet) another Be My Valentine Heart Mug Rug
using my new pattern.

{For now, I'll give you just a glimpse...more photos in another post to follow.}

I also made this little snowman.
He's cute already, but he needs to be made up
into a finished project.

For this particular set of hearts,

from Birch Farm by Joel Dewberry.

I started with 5" squares,which are always in abundance, right?
Think "Charm Packs"...
I cut them into 2 1/2" squares to create patchwork pieces
for a set of 3 similar, but distinct hearts ...

Christmas Mug Rug from Magpie Quilts

Now that Christmas is over, I still have a few projects to share with you. One of the quilt guilds I belong to had a mug rug exchange at their Christmas potluck. I found a great mug at Home Sense that had a beautiful poinsettia on it. And I had a great Robert Kaufman poinsettia fabric at home that was a pretty close match.
Poinsettia Mug Rug
I added a checkerboard border from some ivory & green Christmas fabrics. A little quilting with an all over meandering pattern & a green border and this mug & mug rug were ready to go!
