May Day Part 2

So where was I? .....

Oh yes.  I had finished the mini BOM which reminded me to go and look at my other Blocks of the Month (BOM) and see what I needed to save.  I'm not doing all of them this month/year but I'm trying to collect them so I have them on file.  I think I'm pretty much caught up on the patterns now so that is good.

Speaking of patterns.  I went onto Craftsy and downloaded about 7 mug rug patterns.  I think I will be making them.  Check out Craftsy.  These mug rugs were around $2 and one even came with a table runner that matched it.  Here are a couple of them.  These pictures don't do them justice because I was taking them from the computer. You'll get the idea though.

I love the silhouette ones.  They are a little different then the normal ones I usually see.

I think that I do the patriotic one first since Memorial Day is this month and the 4th of July is right around the corner.  I do need to catch up on some other projects including some of the bucket list from my yahoo group.  I figured out how to do the Hawaiian quilting block so picked out my pattern, my fabric and it is based.  I'm not going to needleturn it this time.  It will take long enough with just doing buttonhole.  I hope to make blocks from the bucket list and then put it all together at the end.  Wish me luck.

I got tired of my thread catching on the pins so I basted it instead.  I think it will work a lot better.

That's about it.  I received a great yearly evaluation from my boss.  I also got some lovely flowers for Administrative Day.  It's been a week now and they are still doing well.  I split up my big bouquet and gave a small one to mom and I kept another small vase for me in the office.

The one that I kept for my office.
Time to sign off for a bit.  I hope everybody is having a great day/evening.
