Inch by Inch

Inch by's a cinch! Yard by's very hard!
 My motto for this summer.  Most of you know I've had to really limit my sewing lately and it's been a struggle for me.  I'm not one to slow down like this.  I've always got to be doing something with my hands.  But while my wrists  heal, slow and easy it will have to be.

My major accomplishment so far this month is this Mug Rug
for the Mug Rug Swap Adventure 2.
(that was due June 30th)
I started with a 3D kite patterned from this quilt I made late last year.
I used mini ric rac for the kite string,
then found these bow buttons for the kite ties.
Of course, the background is the blue sky...
...that needed a little sun and cloud.
And there you have it!

It is on its way to Wendi, a very patient and understanding lady.
I hope she likes it.

And I'm back to inching along....

Your mug rug is too cute! Love the added detail of the buttons on the kite tail. Glad to see you are able to do at least a little bit of sewing. Hopefully your hands will be healed soon:)
