Q4 FAL list for 2013!

It has been way too hot here to do much sewing but I have a late finish for the Q4 FAL - this is a mug rug that I made from a selection of black and white fabrics.

Once again, I used the scrappy trip along tutorial to make this block, but started with strips 12.5 x 2 inches wide so the mug rug finished at 9.5 inches square.

I backed it in some newspaper print fabric and have sent it off along with a block of dark chocolate as a gift.
 So this little project rounds out my list of finishes for the Q4 FAL.

I managed to get 9/10 projects done from my original list back in October 2013 which I am pretty pleased about considering I had my husband home for a few weeks after ankle surgery:(

2. Fabric Basket for swap:done!
3. DUDQS Mini quilt: done!
4. DUDQS Xmas runner:done!
5. Black and white project; done (see above)!
6. Feathers quilt: unfortunately this pile of lovely blocks was not touched this quarter but is first on my list for next time!
7. Ellie Quilt (aka Baby Elephant walk quilt): done!
8. Chicopee QAYG bag: done!
9. Christmas stocking: done!

A huge thanks to Leanne and her wonderful sponsors for hosting the FAL and keeping us all on track:)
