APRIL SHOWERS MUG RUG SHOW


This is what you call sliding into Home Base on a wing and a prayer....
I have looked for my camera for the last 4 hours!!
Found it in a cup on my sewing desk...Geez Louise!!!
It is now 2:00 a.m. CST and I'm FINALLY posting my MUG RUG Pictures.
You are getting the unedited versions...trust me...I'm a little punchy right now.
So here goes...

You know me by now...everything comes with a story.
DD needs some Fancy Mug Rugs for her new Photography Studio.
She serves her clients Tea/Lemonade with a sweet while they look at recent photos DD took of their child/children/family, etc...
 Thus,
LIGHTHOUSE
PHOTOGRAPHY
is either Hand or Machine Embroidered on each one.
APRIL SHOWERS

 I want you to see the ruffles...(I'm not finished embroidering some)

 Hmmm...I need to clip some threads, don't I?



Where do those stray threads come from when you're taking pictures?

My little frog was traced, outlined w. fabric pen, and colored w/ crayons
Can you see the rain drops I FMQ?
Maybe you can see better in this photo

One More Finished Mug Rug.  
In all I have over 15 ready for binding 

My favorite china cup, Lefton...isn't it lovely?  Any beverage tastes better in this little beauty!

Polka Dots, Black & Red, Ruffles
WINNING COMBINATION!
