Distractions Part Two

So after a few more seams, my mug rug looked like this.

The orange pointer is showing you a large bubble in the fabrics.  With the help of Jack (the seam ripper), I split the seam, cut away a little blue fabric and stitched it back.  Now it lies flat.

Only 1 problem.  This isn't a set of 4 mug rugs.  Oh wow!  I was having so much fun, I guess I forgot the goal.  This looks like a table runner.   I think I'll cut the sides curvy too.  Distractions.  They happen so often in life don't they?

Since there was more fabric left, I started slicing more curves.  Here's one mug rug in progress.
This one really became a mug rug

The backs are pieced and ready to load on the frame.  So when they're all finished, I share another photo.

BTW, it only took a few minutes to add the extra storage space, even though they tell you to wait 24 hrs.  If you're just starting out in the blogging world, consider your storage space and whether you might prefer to save photos at a lower resolution.  I wish I had do so from the beginning to keep from paying to add more.  It's not expensive, but still....

Enjoy your day!
