Quilt and Patchwork Mug Rugs - Opam 2012

I am having a really good week for sewing and on Friday I managed to complete these two mug rugs.  Had to show it off with a spotty cup and saucer.
This mug rug is made up of scraps left over from a quilt I made a couple of years ago. patch worked together and the white strip is decorated with some built in stitches on my sewing machine.
The other mug rug is made using Cath Kidston fabric which I bought on the Internet a year or so ago.  Again built in fancy stitches have been used to add to the design.
Both of these mug rugs are quite simple as I think that the fabric needs to speak for itself.  I have made 5 mug rugs now and I think I need to increase the difficulty to stretch myself.  These will go with me to the craft fair in November unless I find a use for them before that date.
I have more stitchy  goodness to show you this coming week.
It has been another glorious day here in Cornwall but we have been indoors emptying the living room ready for the plasterer to come tomorrow to do the ceiling then we can repaint the walls and sort out the floor.  It is nearly two years since we finished the kitchen and it is time to start another DIY project.

Thank you, it is time to step it up a gear and make some that are a little harder. Will make ideal presents.
