Teacher's Appreciation Mug Rug's

     There's always a holiday or something special to prepare for with gifts. Like Mother's Day, I got plans for that already. This is about Teacher's Appreciation. I do appreciate all they do for my kids, and making a little gift is fun for me as well. There's a little koozie surprise that I snuck in here.

Mug Rugs are on the agenda. I started out with her 1st grade teacher.
 
 
Mug Rugs - Used for drink and a snack, or just for the cuteness factor. It's 5 by 9 inches.
 

 
This is for the art teacher. I hope he likes fish. We are in Pensacola, FL. Salt Life stickers are everywhere. Plus, it was  the only manly fabric I have. LOL

 
This one is for the music teacher. I was getting a little tired by this time. I quilted do re mi from the Sound of Music. It's subtle. I should've used another color of thread. Whoops. By the time I thought of that, I was done quilting it, and I would've had to start over. So not happening!

 
Here we have the blue mountains in a koozie. This is for the P.E. teacher. Tutorial coming soon!
 
It made me think of this song...I had to add it.
 
 
 

 
The birdies are all getting their feathers now. Beautiful little things.

Some finishes

I finally got the little tabs on to hang my coffee trio that I made some 6 months ago. I have a 3rd panel, but there was no other spot. We got a large picture for over the dining table. That's where they were meant to go. So, I'll just swap it out occasionally.  I finished these in like 10 minutes. I have no idea why I put things off. It's ridiculous. 

 
In the last post, I showed you the cute birdie eggs that moved into our backyard. OMG, they hatched. Of course they did. Hubby and I  risked being dive bombed for these photos. Seriously, it swooped right by my head. I could hear the wind. I covered my eyes immediately.
 


You can see all the way down this lil guys throat.
 
 
I finished a bunch of new items for the shop. Hopefully, Mother's Day will be the first sale. Shop here.
 

Pincushion tutorial here.
 
 
 


 
Who knew hand towels could be so stinkin' cute?

 
This set  is my favorite. It was my most creative moment today. :)

 
I love coffee!
 

Enjoy your sewing. Blog at ya later.
