I can’t believe another year has come and gone….I spent last 4th of July with some very special friends at their beach house, eating great food, watching fireworks and talking about the possibility of them moving to the east coast for this 4th of July. Well that possibility became a reality in April and they are now living somewhere in North Carolina.
Does that mean we can’t go to their beach house anyway? Well, since they don’t live there anymore (boo hoo) I have to find someplace or something else to do!
I’ve come up with the perfect plan and it wasn’t even my idea…..I’m gonna sew all day with my favorite quilters!
Its a great consolation prize – right??
Now speaking of prizes…
I’ve decided to give away 4 (get it 4th of July) of my holiday mug rugs! I use them everywhere, I put my lap top on one when its on my lap, I put lunch on one, I use for coffee and breakfast – so many uses and so pretty too. I make these mug rugs with special combination of leftover scraps, so they look scrappy but they are actually coordinated. The heart is a signature design for Ladylike – I can and will be making stars too. I fill with a lightweight filler flannel and quilt with a meandering stitch. I also use a hand binding as you would a quilt. They are a very sturdy and completely washable.
I’m very curious what you do for 4th of July, so if you want to drop me a line or just say hello – I’ll assign a number and throw your number in a hat along with the rest and draw 4 numbers on Monday and let you know if you won.
Here are some more pictures of my finished mug rugs….
Enjoy this holiday will all you can! Blessings, Bev
