Insulated Mug Cozys & Coasters

My new Mug Cozys & Coasters are made COMPLETELY in the hoop.
They have Insul-Bright inside to help keep coffee, tea, cocoa, cider, soup, etc warmer longer.

Create cute gifts sets with a matching cozy & coaster, mug, packaged coffees, teas, cocoa, cider, soups & more.
Wrap them up in cellophane, add a bow & a tag and you have a wonderful gift.

The set includes the Santa Suit, Diamond Quilted, Snowflake Quilted & Wavy Lines Quilted Cozys & Matching Coasters.

Zip It

I recently attended a 3 day sewing, quilting & embroidery retreat in central Illinois. It was a fun, informative event. I attended classes on my machine embroidery software and a few hands on project classes.

Here's one of the projects I made.

Maybe you'll be more impressed after it's zipped up :)

The class was taught by Mary Mulari
The project is from her new "Zip & Carry Bags" book.

I also attended a class on "Square In A Square".
I was amazed at how easy it was. The ruler can look intimidating, but once you know how to use it, it's really easy & fun. I still have to add the border to the sample I made in the class. I'll post a pic when it's done.
