A LITTLE BIRD TOLD ME IT IS COFFEE TIME!

I worked on this little mug rug this weekend.  I love mug rugs. I like them to protect my burl wood tables.  I like them for the color they add to the room.  Most of all...I like them because they hide the dust.  This pattern is from the book Learn To Make Quilted Mug Rugs.  Now to sandwich and quilt this little mug rug.  

A busy week is coming up for the Attic Window Quilt Shop.   Check out the classes below.

JUST PLAYING AND CLASSES

I know I have numerous UFOs that I should be working on.  However, when I was blog hopping the other day I saw this Quilt As You Go on Hey Let's Make Stuff.  It is called Scottish Thistle. In my QAYG class next Wednesday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop we will be making a simple place mat, but I want to show students this so they can see that QAYG is not limited.

Speaking of Classes, don't forget that Lee Anne will be showing you how to make this lovely Sling Bag on Monday.
And Marilyn will be showing you how to make this awesome Notebook on Friday.   Call the shop to register for all classes and get a supply list.  I'm thinking all of these are great gift ideas.

Don't forget to get your $5 passport for The Country Fair Road Tour of 2017 held October 12, 13, & 14

A GAL WITH A KIND HEART

 
While at Happy Scrappers at the Attic Window Quilt Shop last week, Jill stopped by and showed us this pillow she made.  She said a friend whose husband had recently died, asked her to make a pillow out of one of his shirts. So this is what Jill came up with.
This is a closeup of the pillow.  Jill said she is making a cover for the pillow so you will see that at the  neckline of the shirt.  This is such a clever idea!
Jill and her daughter recently vacationed in Argentina.  Jill brought back this beautiful bag which I had to show you.  She said that in a certain section of the town the people painted their houses all these pretty colors.  I bet that was awesome.  Thanks, Jill, for sharing with us.
