Busy weekend

I had another very busy crafting weekend. I'm now into 4 different groups with project deadlines. By the end of this week I need to have in the mail 2 mug rugs plus goodies which I can post most of because the people  I am sending to don't know who they are getting theirs from.

This is the front and back of my very first mug rug ever.  It is the Elegant Pumpkin pattern from Shell at Raspberry Rabbits.  http://theraspberryrabbits.blogspot.com/  I just love it.

This is the front and back of the second rug and cozie.  One very traditional and one very contemporary.

Here are the pictures of 1 of the goodies. I found the tutorial for this neat little envelope at  http://originateandrenovate.blogspot.com/2011/09/traveling-art-kit.html  

It was a good tutorial with a button closure.  I used velcro.  My envelopes contain a kit to make a rice bag.  The other goodie that I made can't be posted as they are personalized and that would give them away.

I also spent some time working on my applique cards.

The applique pattern is from an old Art to Heart book and the celebrate is a Stampin Up stamp.   Well I need to get going cause I need to get a small table runner finished and photographed by Friday.
Have a productive week.

  3. I love your applique cards! I have a friend who makes all of her cards like that and they are so fun to receive. :) And that pumpkin mug rug - stunning! blessings, marlene

  4. Oh, Selina, I received my package from you today. THANK YOU so much! The mug rug is fabulous, and so are the other goodies. I am quite overwhelmed. Wherever did you find name fabric? Too cool! I just love the pumpkins, well, I love it all! You are very talented and generous. I'll be following your blog, and it's nice to have a new friend. (We share a favorite cookie, and they were not broken BTW.)
