I sort of jumped on the mug rug bandwagon as well, mostly because I was thinking, well, that'll be a good way to try out my machine quilting, and, as it turns out, I can't machine quilt. I know it's a matter of working at it, and getting in some practice, but dear lord, what a mess! It took me 15 minutes to rip out a very small amount of stitching because were roughly the size of a molecule.
So lets not talk about that. Here. Look at our backyard.
