Today my friend Tiffany from Another Pie In The Sky is back with a cute mug rug she made with the Accuquilt Go! Ribbons. When I asked her to take part in this series she jumped right in and said yes. Be sure to hop on over to her blog. You will notice that there's no follow me button on her blog, see this post for an easier way to follow blogs. And why not practice that new way to follow right there. You will never have to refresh a blog again to get everything loaded.
Today's cancer related web site is the National Cancer Institute. This site has lots of info about treatment, prevention, testing, stats and clinical trials.
Take it away Tiff...
Hello everyone! It's such a privileged to be back at Craizee Corners! For those of you who may not know me, my name is Tiffany and I blog over at Another Pie in the Sky. As you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I have recently met a few twitter friends who have been affected by breast cancer. Those are the first women that I know with breast cancer and it has opened my eyes to this disease.
Sha sent me some ribbons and I decided I would attempt my first mug rug. I've heard they are addictive and quick. I agree with that later, but not so sure about the first. I did this mug rug today in a couple hours. I didn't do the "standard" mug rug with the binding. I actually sewed the pieces right sides together and turned turned them right side out. The only thing I would do differently, and still may do, is sew 1/4" around the outside (I ran out of pink thread).
I started out making 2 mug rugs as a set, but have only finished one. However, you can see the back of the 2nd one in the bottom, right photo. Can you see the difference in the two bottom photos?
Aren't those adorable? She literally made them in between phone calls yesterday! I love how quick mug rugs go together once you decide on a pattern. As a matter of fact I think I will make a few for Christmas gifts today.
Come back tomorrow for a great idea to remind you to get that mammogram and do self checks. Have you made your appointment yet?
