Mug Rug Sunday

I made my first mug rug!  Well actually I finished it on Saturday.  I cut a rectangle of blue and inserted strips of white, then cut the strips of white and inserted strips of red.  It is quilted with sparkly thread and I just had to use the WC fabric on the back!

Detail of the in the ditch quilting with sparkly thread.

I have now quilted the green hanging with green sparkly thread and it looks a whole lot better!  Thanks, Jackie, for the great idea and the use of your green sparkly thread.

On the way home from Embroidery club on Friday night I just had to stop and take some photos.

The sky was quite a lot redder than showed up in this photo - it was also quite difficult to get the windmills in focus and at the bottom of the picture!
A mile or so later on the hills were this magnificent graduated blue - now this would make an interesting quilt!

Diet pancakes! (I don't think!)  Blueberry and raspberry vegan pancakes with soya yogurt topping!  So YUMMY.
