Hexie Mug Rug progress

I started doing some Hexie's the other night out of scraps and came up with the idea to do it as a mug rug for a Xmas present.  I've started it but haven't gotten very far on it.



I'm not sure what color will be the background but this will be about the only thing on the mug rug.  The hexies are around 2 1/2" each so it will a good size mug rug.  I'm joining the hexies by doing the ladder stitch(?).  I hadn't heard of that before but I'm liking how it is coming together.  I have about three hexies sewn together and all are sewn onto the center.

This is my weekend I meet up with some gaming friends so I won't get much stitching done.  Still a little here and a little there will get things done.  Perhaps Sunday afternoon I can go and look to see what color I want the leaves to be for Lily Rose.

If you like interesting recipes, check out my other blog Getting Healthy.  Don't worry, it's so much about that because that's fallen down by the wayside but I do post recipes over there.  Lately there have been some Saudi Arabian recipes that were given to me in a pamphlet on Unity day at work.

I'll catch up with all of you on Sunday.  Until then everybody be safe.
