Simple Gifts. Give Thanks.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and/or friends.  My (nearly) local extended family enjoyed a delicious feast.  We all ate too much and had too much fun!

In a pre-Thanksgiving Day "light bulb moment", I made a small mug rug for my SIL's mother as a thank you for a thoughtful little gift that she sent me this summer.  In a moment of spaciness, I forgot to take a photo before delivering it to her yesterday.  :o(

I used one of my six-and-a-half inch "Crumb" blocks for the mug rug.  I had set it aside with a group of extra blocks to make pillow shams to match the quilt.  Before I did the quilting, I inked the words "Simple Gifts. Give Thanks." While quilting, I added the recipient's name.  She appreciated the gesture.

I'm sorry that I neglected to take a photo.  I would have liked sharing it with you.  Hopefully, my next completed project will be accompanied by "picture proof."

Until then...
Happy Quilting!
