This was quite some time ago but I finally found a minute or two to upload pictures and write something. The summer has been somewhat crazy in a good and bad way. Today we are expecting 32C in Edmonton so I like to look at pictures in which I am wearing a hoodie :-). I am not complaining but my body is not made for 32C. I am perfectly happy when the temperature is around 20C.
Back to the topic at hand. We had picked the Irish Theme at our Modern Quilt Gild Meeting and this is what I made. I found this wonderful and cute little bag online on the Spoonful of Sugar website and I loved it. I made one trial bag that got immediately snatched away by my daughter. I later found it stuffed to the brim with My Little Pony items. I am ok with that because it gets used.
See the little tag in rainbow colours? Yes. It is the end of the rainbow and inside the bag I hid some gold coins aka chocolate coins.
The recipient loved it by the way.
The mug rug itself was inspired by Jacquelynene Steves and I could not stop making them. I made Valentine versions in red and cream. I gave several away…and forgot to take pictures of course. Some days I am glad that my head is attached to my shoulders….
On my way to the Gild Meeting already running late my husband shot one more picture. Birdie playing in the background with the trial bag and wearing a ponytail. A rare occassion and worth a picture.
Ta-ra..I am on the hunt for the gold pot at the end of the rainbow. See you soon.
