Jonique has her wall hanging

I gave Jonique her NIU wall hanging today.  From her expression I think she likes it.

What have I done?  I'm in the middle of working on a wool candle mat.  This is the first time I've worked with wool.  I kind of like it.  The snowman BOM is wool on cotton squares and I wanted to try something else first to see how it would be.  I still have to put the back on it and then it (the candle mat) will be done.

I decided that I needed  to have a patriotic mug rug for the 4th so on Memorial Day I made one.  It started out different than it finished at but I can live with it.

Speaking of Patriotic things.  Rose Hall from Custom Quilts has an applique block of the month.  I've talked about it before and one of the months I received flags and stars.  For only $5 a month you get a nice assortment of precise cuts all ready with the fusibles on the back.  I dug out the one with stars and flags and fused it to some white material.  I will probably turn it into a mug rug.  A funny coincident is that the white stars are of the same material that I am using for the background. 

Have a great day.
