Sewing Time is Coffee Time

Coffee and sewing just go together.

Yes I have been sewing.  Quite a bit actually.  I just haven't photographed or posted.  I have been working on two big fitting projects and sometimes I need to take a quick break and play.

I like to play with my embroidery machine.  I am mesmerized by the machine, watching it create intricate designs with thread.

I also need a coffee break.  I am trying to clean up my sewing area too.  Mug rugs seem to be all the rage right now so I thought I would make one.  I totally copied an idea from timewrinkler on Flicker.

The design is from Urban Threads, my very favourite source for embroidery designs.

I even found a piece of binding just long enough to bind the edges.

Back of the mug rug.

My tiny coffee corner has everything I need on top of the little fridge.  

Now I must get back to work.

Thanks for dropping by,

Love the designs (especially the scissors) & thanks for the link! What kind of embroidery machine do you have? I have a Janome Memory Craft 350e & still need to get the software, so I have only have done the basics!
