I joined the Mug Rug Swap Adventure a while back, then got very sick with gall stones.  I didn't sew for months!  Which is obvious if you read my blog -- no posts for a LONG time.

My partner in the swap doesn't like colors that are common in my stash, so I searched for quite a bit before finally finding something I liked that I thought she would.  Apparently, I made a bit of a boo-boo.  She said no black, brown or purple.  I didn't take my list with me, and thought it was no black, brown, or pink.  So there's some purple in it.  Thankfully, she indicated on Flickr that she liked the fabrics, so hopefully she won't hold it against me!

Above is the front.  I wanted something simple so I could show off the fabric.  It's Tina Givens' Haven's Edge.  I sent scraps to my partner and kept some for myself.  Lovely!

Above is my version of a label.  I'm not big into the fabric labels with all that info on them.  I want to see the fabric.  All of it!

My favorite square!  The birdies!  It was accidental, though I was trying to make it happen.  Just didn't have to try too hard!  Whew.

And the backing.  I LOVE this fabric.  It's gorgeous!

And that is why I haven't sewn or posted in forever!  I have been sick, on and off, for months.  I finally know why -- I have a giant gall stone!  Fun times.

Surgery takes place on June 15.  So sorry I haven't been talkative.  I do have some projects I have to finish -- like a mug rug for my partner in the Mug Rug Swap Adventure 2!  Coolness!  Anyway, keep your fingers crossed that I make it through the next two weeks!
