Two little finishes

In between the cleaning and cooking for Thanksgiving, I managed to squeeze in a little enjoyment.
First, I made this cute mug rug.

This design comes from Pretty in Patchwork.  There are some really cute ideas in this book.  The only problem is that the templates are not full size, so you have to plan ahead and get the ones you'll need enlarged.  This can be an issue for me since I usually don't plan ahead.  However, this one was easy enough to make without templates by looking at the picture and reading the directions.  I was happy with the way it turned out.

My other finish is this infinity scarf.
I bought this pretty flannel last year and never got around to using it.  In less than an hour, from start to finish. I had this warm and comfy scarf. It took 1 yard of  44" flannel and was simple to stitch.   I plan on making more.  If you're looking for a quick and easy gift, this is it.


  1. Ooooh both look so good - great job.

  2. Your mug rug is so cute and perfect for a cup of peppermint hot chocolate:-) Audrey and I made infinity scarves as teacher gifts yesterday... they really are the perfect quick project!!!

  3. Love the mug rug, so cute! The scarf is wonderful, great idea.
