On a roll!

The month of June simply does not have enough days in it ... 30 days hath September, April, June, and November.  Or perhaps because the days are cooler, after all it is almost the winter solstice, my hours of sewing have increased.

A table runner made in the quilting block, Card Trick because I rather like Card Trick, in its 12" block format.  Simple, yet very effective, and if I had 100 days in June I may have considered making a quilt!  Just may have!
Another swap, this time for a Christmas in July mug rug.  Having recently found Christmas FQ's at sale price, this mug rug presented few problems, except ... which fabric to use?   
When in my favourite fabric shop last week I noticed some gorgeous fabric designed [so I think] with mug rugs in mind ... tea cups with flowers.  Photos?  Not until the sewing fairy puts in more hours!

Some more lovely things Shirley. I love that little red robbin on your applique cup. The table runner is lovely and I particularly like " Card Trick" myself although I have never made the block myself.
