STRINGS AND MUG RUGS

I didn't leave yesterday as i had planned....the weather was terrible....i got as far as the door and said 'no way'.....the wind was blowing, rain hitting the door and the temps were cold , yes really cold for a fall day....i was half way expecting snow or ice last night during the night....anyway it didn't seem like a day that was fit for anyone and i hate running round in the rain trying to stay dry.....so i just decided to stay home and enjoy something i like to do....SEW!

I got out my scrap basket and played in it all afternoon....i have some patience but after 4 hours of playing in scraps i am ready to quit....but i made 6 mug rugs of which i have yet to quilt...i thought maybe i would do it last night but i was too keyed up from being 'scrappy' all afternoon i didn't think i should machine quilt anything and get keyed up again or i wouldn't sleep lol.....

and i also made some string blocks while i was  playing....ok i counted them yesterday and there are quite a few but this morning the amount i have left me lol....i just know it wont be long and i will be thinking about how i am going to use them in a quilt....
the picture looks like they are single blocks but they are small stacks in each one, i just grabbed them and laid them out...i could have made a lot of them yesterday but working on mug rugs and strings at the same time takes a little more brain power especially when i was making a mono color mug rug....trying to use just one color in it while using lots different one in the strings....next time i think i will just stick to one item at a time...lol...

i hope today that i will quilt the mug rugs before the day is done and i still have the bag to assemble so would like to get that done also....but for now its coffee and breakfast time for me and i will see where my day takes me after that....more later....
