Finally a mug rug

I think I spend too much time reading blogs and not posting, so here's what I have been up to this week; my Dad's much belated birthday present!

It took a little while longer than That Girl That Quilt suggested, but I'm a newbie and it was my first ever real binding. I am quite pleased with how it turned out, just don't look too closely! Her tutorial for machine binding was much easier than I had anticipated after reading other blogs- just [another] one for the stop-reading-and-bloody-well-get-on-with-it books.

So I may be a little behind with the mug rug craze, but I loved putting it together, simple as it was, I felt like it was an achievement and with Chris looking over my shoulder asking for his own how can I resist making some more... I might have to improve on my fabric choices for men though, there's just so little to choose from. Maybe it can match his ipad case, we will see...
