Accuquilt Go! and a Mug Rug

Yes I have made a couple mugs rugs along with the rest of blog-land!;-)
I used 2 inch strips and Rose of Sharon flowers cut with my GO!cutter.

Made two matching ones with mugs and chocolate for part of Alice's Christmas gift.
I also made her runners for her table but for some reason I can NOT find any pics of them!! Will have to ask Alice to take some for me!

This is a candle mat I made her with a candle wrap Diana stitched.
She did the wrap in Alice's fav color of purple! ;-)

This is a vanilla scented wax battery candle.
Love these! Does have the flickering look of a real candle without the worry.
I have had mine by fireplace for 2 yrs and batteries still holding.

Well we did finally get all the Christmas stuff back in storage.
So then it was time to put house back to normal, well as normal as we get here.
I like to redo things and so I have been moving things around, pulling this out putting this away. Playing sort of..;-)

Put a few of the snowmen on the mantle for a bit.
Snow Angel is a BittersweetFolkArt Primitives original by my friend Mandy.
If you love some prim check out her patterns...;-)
I think Mr. Winterberry needs to come live here too.

Changed out the wall quilt for one of my very old old ones.
This one is very very worn but I love the part that shows.

We are cloudy now and expecting a rain over night with the occasional flurry.
Yes Winter is still here.

Well back to sewing up some pretties for my dough bowls.
Will share that in another post.
