The Sheep again

Last week my daughter was complaining her tea was getting cold because she would leave it sitting around. I just knew I should have joined the Mug Cozy Swap. Any way this is what I came up with, as you can see I used those sheep again. This pattern was in Patchwork and Craft Vol4 No 6 and was designed by Cynthia Martin. The pattern was a wall hanging called Designed by Ewe.

I so love those sheep.

It was very easy to make, I did print off one pattern to make it, but it was designed for a sloping cup and ours are fairly much the same size from top to bottom, so I just wrapped some paper around the cup and did a little snipping and there was my pattern, I added a bottom to mine to so it could not slide up the cup and get in the way of drinking.

This is the quilt I am calling "Inspiration". I made it because of the block I made for this months BOM in the swap I am in, the block looked so nice when finished that I decided to draw it up im my EQ6 and see what it looked like, when I did that I discovered the pinwheel, so after a little redrawing I started, that when I ran out of fabric, so I have ended up with small and big pinwheels and also squares with in squares. The cours are dark green and yellow floral, (the photo is not real good)
