A little sewing...finally!

I haven't done much sewing the past few weeks, so it was fun to work on a small project the other day. I wanted to make a little quilty gift for the teacher librarian that helps all of us elementary library clerks in our school district (there are twelve!).
I decided on a mug rug using free pieced letters...I couldn't decide if I should do her name or "Read".  It's been a while but it all came back to me...making letters is so much fun.

Before I knew it, I had the letters for her name ready.
I added a little border and quilted it. I think I should've put a white border all around her name, but it was getting sort of big for a mug rug, so I didn't.

I realized after I gave it to her that I should've signed and dated it. Oops!

It's a lovely little mug rug. The colors are wonderful.

You can still sign and date it. That's what Sharpies are made for!

Great letters.
