When you can't sleep ...... sew ..........

Between not being sleepy last night and being awake early this morning I needed something to work on.   So I dug out two more of my little cross-stitch pieces to make into mug rugs/snack mats.

The setting for the patriotic cross-stitch heart started with a few of the floral HST's and some extra fabric to make more that I found in one of my totes.  The navy fabric that it is sitting on is what I'm going to use for the backing of it.  Finished size will be 9" by 12".



The second mug rug also started with a cross-stitch piece and a few scraps.  I don't remember how many years ago I did the cross-stitch, but it's been a lot now.   And I just shake my head because after all the times I've looked at this piece it wasn't until today that I realized there was something wrong with the work.....can you see it?   I'll need to finish the outlining on the one leg.  And then I'm going to look for a button to cover the unstitched area or I might a little bitty flower applique over it.   If I can't find a button I like then I'll see if I can match the thread colors as a last resort.

Gratitudes:

1. Things are falling into place for my Road Trip this month.

2. Only 3 more days with the kids for this school year.

took me a few seconds to see the missing leg lol . . . good idea to sew something on top to hide it.

A few seconds is much better than the years it took me! LOL

Wrap a bandage around his foot - he just had that huge splinter pulled out by a mouse, you know! Cute projects, both of them. Hope you are sleeping better tonight!
