|Dresden Mug Rug|
I have been in temporary accommodation with my work place for five months, while a much needed upgrade of the building was attended to. Not only did the building upgrade occur, but a freshen up with new paint and carpet happened as well. Woo Hoo --it was so needed. There was a small amount of money remaining in the budget - this was quickly spent on new office furniture.
I am back into my work place, not yet fully unpacked, as a little hiccup on the home front occurred that same week.
The middle 5BN sustained a hard knock at footy, being as stoic as he is - I bandaged the wrist for several days, administered pain relief, and decided it was only a sprain! We jointly decided the injury could be managed by Mum, rather than clog up the queue at A&E with a seemingly little injury.
Lesson learnt - or so I thought- from the previous trip to A&E, only months ago -- where we waited for an indeterminable amount of time to have steri strips and glue applied to this injury- a clonk with a hockey stick to the nose.
After no improvements re the sore wrist-- were noted into the following week -- maybe it was time we arranged an X-ray, Yep!!-- a clean total break in his radius -- the long bone in the arm, As the Orthopaedic Surgeon laughed --no bandage was going to aid the healing of that bone in correct alignment.
No Mother of the Year award will be going to me--that's for sure!!

Back to thinking about the revamped work environment, I decided I needed to sew a Mug Rug to ensure my new desk stays clean. I auditioned some bright fabrics below.
|Careful pinning of some jelly roll strips, as well as other fabrics.|
I pinned the Dresdens, and using my recently found invisible thread, I stitched them onto the background, I then quilted the background with a straight stitch, outlining the peaks of the Dresdens.Using a jelly roll strip of Vintage Modern, I was able to piece the half circle, and bind the Mug Rug.
