A UFO finish and some mug rugs

Rain has stopped (at least for some days), days are slightly cooler and these two things mean only one thing: gardening. Our garden was overgrown due to all the rain and we haven't done anything outside for some weeks. No gardening when its wet! :) We've done quite a lot over the last couple of days, which feels good. My muscles are sore, but that is how it should be, isn't it?! :) Not sure I'll manage 3 days in a row...

Sewing and other inside activities have kept me busy. From my previous post I had almost finished the daffodil table topper


It's finished, sold and on its way to Norway. 
This is UFO #8 from the Quilts! Quilts! Quilts! UFO Challenge. Still have some UFO's to work on, but must confess I'm tired of them! :) 

After finishing 3 big quilts lately (left to hem the binding on one), I have made a few mug rugs 


I found these beautiful fabrics while I was looking for something else........... 


It was a fat quarter and I fussy cut those beautiful pansies. Just enough for 3 mug rugs and what was left is cut into squares.

Just enough of the coffee fabric stripe to make this mug rug. :)

My latest craze is trivets. I have made quite some and hope to get the photos done today.
