Hi everyone, long time no see - I've been lurking around, but mainly staying off the computer. I haven't even been sewing much. Whole days have gone by just being lazy. And have I enjoyed it!
Today I've uploaded Caroll's Christmas, my new mug rug designs for you. These designs are named for Caroll at Attic Window Quilt Shop, who was instrumental in helping me start the Christmas Through The Year. Thank you Caroll!!!
There are 7 designs total.
You can make the entire set to give as a gift, or just use one or two. I first did them in different colored floss, then did the gingerbread men in redwork - love the redwork! And that one will be for a very special friend for Christmas. That's my November Christmas Through The Year gift. Making them in redwork is much faster!
I've decided to name my patterns after my blog friends. Christmas Through The Year was started for the purpose of having lots of gifties to send out to my bloggy pals, but this year is a tight one financially and I won't be able to send them. Praise God, we have enough - enough food, enough heat, enough to cover all the bills - He has been so good to us - but there is no extra. My blog friends have been so very good to me, and I want so much to give back, so I thought and thought about what I could do to thank you all. And this is what I came up with. I appreciate you all so very, very much, and love you dearly, so be watching for your names! They won't be in any particular order, I want the pattern to reflect the person.

It's thunderstorms today, grey and not terribly cold - Hermione was helping me take pictures of the mug rugs. She thinks I'm silly when I tell her to get down.
I hope you enjoy my new pattern, if you make some I'd love to see them!
