Well, I decide that I should start sewing them while I wait for my new machine so I quilt the quilt :) They are adorable little squares when put together...but I've never worked with stuff quite that small...and I don't know that I want to make many more at that size :)
Once I had the first square together, I decided to put these into a smaller item for my desk. This is the result...
I love the way they turned out...even the little flap on the mug rug - which has a story to it...I was trimming down the granny blocks and thought it be neat to leave the bunting looking edge on one side...so I did. I even figured that the binding of that side would be tricky...and it was...but I proceeded.
However, when I was done, it looked horrible...at least to me... and I debated on what to do. It didn't take long to decide to cut it off and bind it with some other fabric.
However, that wasn't quite enough, so, I had to do something to make it seem a little different... I don't know why a flap, but I had the scallops left over from working in Curves Class and went with it...now I have a neat little spot for my pen and pencil to rest on my desk! And 'soft' covers for the nice wooden coasters we received for Christmas.
For the grace of God that bringeth salvation
hath appeared to all men.
God would have that all men be saved, but it is up to us to accept...but His grace is there for all. If you have never found the peace of trusting Jesus as your Saviour and would like to know more about the grace and mercy offered freely to you, please take time to read the left side bar of this blog or feel free to ask me more, I'd love to share with you about the salvation Jesus brings to our lives.
