After completing the quilt top for the Across the Sea QAL I was feeling like I had finished my last exam. It had been such a struggle with my machine that to say I felt elated is a bit of an understatement.
However, there was still work to be done. Two mug rugs and two `goodies` for the Goodie Swap 2011 that Canadian Susan had twisted my arm to join. Woefully behind and with a posting date just over a week away I set to it. Using the same block pattern, I have completed the top for the first mug rug. It`s hand pieced using Kumari Garden.

I have started the second mug rug top, which I hope will look like a book shelf with the last book falling over. I am not happy with it yet but need to sew the `books` together before I decide. I `ll see what it looks like once the `books` are joined together.
If you are doing some stitching I hope the sewing gods are smiling on you. Linking up with WiP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.
