Poinsettias and a mug rug rug

The plan this morning was to do a bit of housework and head to the sewing room; however, plans changed when the sun came out.

I hung clothes on the line even though it's about -3C and I went out to wrap two small shrubs and loosely lay some lights on a couple. I'll see if they'll be ok to hook up when hubby comes home and fix them more permanently.

I headed to my sewing machine just long enough before lunch to set up some black thread in preparation for outlining the leaves on a mug rug and the second poinsettia.

The mug rug was all quilted and waiting for the binding which is ready to go, but I wasn't enthused. Something was missing. I added some fused leaves on top.

That does it.

I may get a bit more done after lunch before heading out for my tutoring session with a GEd student.

The added leaves make the mug rug, Holly!

I had to laugh at your hanging laundry in the snow. By your description, your weather (and snowfall amount) is about the same as in my back yard, here in Winnipeg.

Thanks for posting to TN&TN's WIP Wednesday!

I love the addition of the leaves and of course, seeing your laundry hanging out with the snow.

Like those leaves appliqué don the sewn strips. Nice touch!
