It's Moo-velous!

Hello!

Sorry for my absence. I got a lot done last week but haven't accomplished too much since. My son and I went to visit my dad and sister on Saturday. On the way home we visited 3 thrift stores. Two were new ones for me. I found lots of treasures! I will share the pictures of my new treasures soon. I haven't had a chance to take them yet because I was wiped by the time I got home Saturday. Then on Sunday all I wanted to do was sleep. Same thing today. I seem to have come down with something that's just wiping me out. My son has come down with a bad cold but seems to have more energy then me. Maybe it's his youth. The hunky dude is healthy so far. Hope he stays that way.   :)

Do you remember me telling you about a mug rug swap I was in? Well... my partner received the mug rug I made for her so I can finally share it with you. She owns a dairy farm. She loves and collects cows. I designed and made this mug rug for her...


It was my first ever mug rug and my first ever applique. I think it turned out pretty cute. Here's the back...


I also made her some matching coasters...


That's all I have to share today. I'm hoping I'll feel better tomorrow so I can work on some on my many projects.

Have an awesome day!  :)

Until next time...

Hopping over from the Sew Darn Crafty Party and loving your project! We ranch and this is darling. We don't raise dairy cattle, but there are a ton of dairies down in the valley and these would be cute to make for a little silent auction for the 4-H Dairy club. Did you just freehand your pattern? Cute. Cute. Cute! I need to make one with a beef cow...and a horse...and a buffalo...and a chicken. LOL!
