A custom order, other finishes and a new project

Early Tuesday morning and I'm having my cuppa - wonderful!
I love early mornings; dawn, birds chirping, the clouds and colors of the sky - pristine. 

Over the last days I have been working on a custom order; 4 mug rugs. 
It took some time from the order was placed before I started working on them. I had some of the fabrics and some I had to order from the US, shipping time is everything from 10 days up to 6-7 weeks. I'm not sure where it gets stuck! 

These mug rugs are gifts and they reflect the likes of the recipients; coffee, cupcakes, waffles and knitting, and your guessing is right; they are nurses. 

I hope the recipients will be happy! :) 

A finish; candle mat / table mat

Another candle mat / table mat

Remember the Christmas log cabin lap quilt I'm working on? 
It's almost done! I've left to hem the binding. :) 

I have some leftover fabrics from the log cabin quilt and decided to make another scrappy lap quilt
I need 20 blocks and I made 2 yesterday. Not sure I will be able to make 2 per day, but... let's see! :) 
Not sure I have enough of the background fabrics though... I have a little bit left of this one, should be enough for at least one block. A little bit left of the same but in green and a third one that is different in gold on cream. What I will need is fabric for the border and backing, should find something on sale later. 

My coffee mug is empty so I'd better get going with some (boring) housework this am. 

Have a great day everyone!

The mug rugs are darling and sure to be loved by the recipients. The candle mats and log cabin lap quilts are delightful and your quilting looks great. I'm doing some housework now too and looking forward to some sewing time. Put on some music or a movie to help through the chores!

Dine mugrugs ser flotte ut, og din kunde kommer til å bli jätteglad.
Ditt Christmas log cabin ser veldig fint ut også. Du får jo gjort en masse selv om du har husarb.... Jeg masserer mest finger om dagen, blir lite gjort...

You are quite a busy little bee.
Great work so far.
I think the lap quilt will look awesome!

Well if you can wait for next year, you could shop after Christmas for those sales! I especially like the last block you showed.
