design wall monday? Already?

I actually have something on my design wall at work.  Wow...Perhaps I should have warned you before I posted that.  That's ok.  I'll wait for you to recover from the shock of that announcement.

It's not much but since it's at work it doesn't have to be much.  It's all about getting things started again and back into a grove.

That being said here is the finished mug rug that I did.  You know I don't like it and just wanted to finish it because I sewed the binding on the machine.  LOL.

As some of you may know, the yahoo group that I belong to has what we call a bucket list.  I don't do big projects for this since limited space etc.  This months bucket list drawing was to learn to do Cathedral Windows.  I did one block for it (that's enough thank you very much) and here it is.  I will be turning it into a mini wall hanging but not sure how I will finish it yet.

It is pretty plain right now.  I have a little under 200 of these denim squares (approx 8") so thought to use five of them here.  The middle is the reverse side of the denim.  I was going to embroidery in the larger blocks but can't think of what I want to do or what to applique there.  I might just end up doing red border and back on it and leave it.  I might also use red thread and to hash marks for the quilting.  This will probably be a wall hanging.  The blue is actually a prettier shade then it shows up in the picture.

Any suggestions?
