|Mug Rug for Partner 1, Mug rug & goodie swap 2011|
So, that's one partners mug rug done. Mug rug for partner two is done too, but I'm really not sure about it at all.
One side is my having fun with her colours, the other side is my first ever attempt at foundation piecing. I'm not sure about either side! Actually, thats not true. I really like the solids side. Its way more my thing. Not sure its my partners thing though. And, well, when my man (yes, he's home! yay!) saw both mug rugs, he looked at this one and said "is this one for someone you dont like as much as the other one?"
Oh Crap. Not the case at all! Tell me honestly, is that what it looks like?!
I also got the "goodie" done for partner two. Again, something that one minute I look at and think "awesome", the next minute I look at it and think "awful." I'm a bit confused I think!
I'm fairly positive partner 2 likes that particular print. And its a note / sketch pad carrier / roll / thingy. I've tried really hard to think of something specific to her. So, its either going to be a big hit or a complete dud!
Talking of big hits though... Check out what I received in the "For the Love of Solids" swap, from Adventures in Fabric.
Isnt it fantastic? Beautiful cushion, a lovely mug rug, and some lush fabric too! I'm really delighted with it all, so a big thank you to Lori for being such a great swap partner.
I've still got a "goodie" to make for partner 1. I'm getting too close to the deadline for comfort! I'm really going to have to make an effort to restrain from joining swaps and Quilt-alongs and what not for a wee while, I've got so many sewing projects on the go at the moment I'm feeling a little overwhelmed. Not in a bad way, just in a "why cant I stay awake more?" way! Still, now that my man is home I don't need to worry about housework for the time being - and you can imagine how happy that makes me! I just need to convince him that the hoover jumped and wasn't pushed...
I'm linking up with Sew Modern Monday again, remember to have a wee nosey there and check out the cool stuff others are doing - there's a feature on Jill from Made on Main Street, whom you may remember was my For the Love of Solids swap partner. Her work is pretty amazing!
