A Last Minute Gift...

Last minute because today is my last 'official' day of 

school til February!

 (Happy dance....)

And when one of my dear friends gifted me this pretty 

fabric,


(hopefully enough to make a blouse),

I made something in return....


A mug rug!

I started with 1.5 " squares.....


And backed it with this piece of Liberty!



My colour choice was inspired by...


the mug I bought first!

I love the low volume feel of this...


I hope she loves it as much as I do!



On a side note, thank you to all my followers for 

voting for me for the Travellin Pic Stitch Bloghop....

I won the Australasian section!

In celebration I will be having a   g.v..w.y   soon!


Happy days!
