Mug Rugs.

I joined an on-line sewing group called Just Sew.. and this months swap was Mug Rugs. So here are mine and today I have posted them off to the USA to my swap partner. I do hope she likes them.

I was in dire need of a new peg bag, so with some of the scraps left here is my new one. I forgot to take a photo of it before I filled it with pegs so it looks a little misshapen .

That is the sum total of the sewing I have done since my last blog post. I have a pile of mending and alterations to do but the garden has taken over at the moment.

The little arbor where we sit for coffer and afternoon tea is now due a severe hair cut and a tidy up, now that Mrs Pigeon has raised her two babies and they have all left.
This is the third year she has built her nest in the roses above, as much as we try to dissuade her, she is sitting on an egg before we have turned our backs (this year two).

The little bench Mr M made has moved again, this time I hope for good. There was an awkward little triangle between the green house and the fence, where all sorts of junk used to get dumped.Its now another little seating area.. Though where to put the wheelbarrow now..Ha! Ha!..

The mosaic floor is an old table top, the metal legs rotted and fell off..
I love up-cycling and it is looking good. The black pot at the front now has a lovely lavender planted in it..

Well Mr M has just come in with a second large bowl of gooseberries and tells me he is about to pick some blackcurrants so I know what I shall be doing later..

Keep safe and keep stitching........................Doti...
