Since these are made entirely of French General's La Petite Ecole line, I thought I'd throw a little French on the 'mug' side with some embroidered backstitch. D is enjoying Late Immersion (grade 6) and my French vocab is slowly coming back as I fulfill the role of 'Mother Who Speaks French comme une petite enfant" while simultaneously acting as "Homework Support Staff".
I'm the kind of person to put leftover HST's into a little ziploc baggy, stuff them in a drawer in my sewing room and never do anything with them again.
Not this time.
I am going to use every last scrap of the La Petite Ecole charm pack that I paid a whole $7 for!
I only have 2 full charm squares and some angled scraps left over from cutting Tracey's Dresden Plate petals. Not to worry, though, I have a plan! I'm going to use the scraps to make a pair of boobs for Mrs. Moen, using a design similar to my Allium rug rug.
I'm not yet sure where these 2 mug rugs will end up - teacher gifts are a distinct possibility. I just need D to do some covert mug sniffing on the teacher's desk to figure out who drinks tea and who drinks coffee!
Tomorrow night is the VMQG meeting. This month Felicity issued a nametag challenge. I best get working on that!
