Somehow I could not resist to join this swap last minute and signed up in the middle of the night. It is a chance to try out a new pattern and turn it into a small mug rug. And even with everything going on I will take the time to sew a little or more again and again.
In this house almost everything just has it spot and it is not able to move many things around to improve or get a change. We add some color on the first walls in the kids' rooms. Yesterday we moved the computer table out of the kitchen. Now there's a corner empty there and I a small table will get a home there, so the sewing machine can move from the kitchen table over there.
I don't recall myself sewing 1.5" squares before. They are tiny. However, the sizing fit perfectly for my first attempts of making mug rugs. One of the patterns is already cut in a little bit bigger size, too, to keep and either way might end up as couch pillow or small wallhanging. Couch pillows are still on my to-do-list to exchange the plain beige ones the couch came with and bring some more color in and a little bit softer cushions to snuggle in, too.
