Oh boy I was having conniptions last night. My mug rug was going so wrong and I just couldn't figure out how to fix it. Here is what it looked like
and you can see how many times I tried to catch the piece of material that I couldn't. So I wrote to Erin and said please move me in sheer panic and then as I was in bed this morning I thought all of a sudden I could fix this by undoing it and redoing it because the fabric wasn't actually too small. So I got up early (well for me anyway) took my best and best friend right now - my seam ripper - and went for it. Would you believe that less than an hour later here is it
Not perfect but it does depict April here in England almost except we haven't been having rain this April but SNOW!!! It's unbelievable. We had no summer last year and now we aren't having any Spring and Spring is my favorite season. Never mind it usually rains here in April so I thought what better to represent April than Showers in England in April.
I hope you like what I made - it's okay and not perfect but at least I had another go at binding. I will have to do loads more before get my two quilts back from the Long Arm Quilter.
Thank you so much for coming to my blog and seeing what a hash I made of this mug rug but do stay and have a look at what else I've done and I will be showing my latest blocks and quilt tops really soon.
I really should have said that this pattern was designed by The Patchsmith who lives here in England YAY!!! You can find the pattern here and she has some more lovely ones that I have purchased as well.
See you soon
