Quickblog

Mug rug for Penny, originally uploaded by Lynne @ Lilys Quilts.
Have you tried this new flickr feauture out? There's a little B icon over the pic you want to blog, press that and, hey presto, you have a blogpost - it's so quick and easy for a one-pic post. I made this mug rug for Penny sewtakeahike as a little extra for her - she'd asked for a kitchenalia block and I made her the robot lady coffee pot but, being British, I felt she ought to have a cup of tea too. My mate Mandy from Simply Solids gave me a FQ of this fabric when I was loitering round her studio one day - it's cool to have a friend with a fabric shop where I can loiter.

  2. Great mug rug! I love how you girls in the other hemisphere share fat quarters so readily...here in Oz a fat quarter costs $6.00 so all I get from my quilt shop is a pretty plastic bag to take my (expensive) purchase home in!!!! LOL!

  8. How long did you have to stand there drooling/staring at the teapots before Mandy gave in and whacked a FQ off for you?

    I haven't tried the B feature yet, cos I always have too many pics I want to put in my posts (of pickled peppers).
