Don’t you just love surprises?
Look what arrived this morning all the way from sunny Crete 😀
Teje from Nero’s Post and Patch made these mug rugs for me. Teje has to be one of the sweetest people on this planet and she writes a wonderful blog about her sewing hobbies, her animals and more. She has entered the Blogger’s Quilt Festival with her beautiful Butterflies Quilt and has actually sent me some extra butterflies from it! Aren’t they gorgeous?
She has constructed the butterflies using the same methods as in her quilt. Here is a view of the back which I like as much as the front 🙂
My photographs don’t do them justice so you must go and take a look at the whole quilt on Teje’s blog and vote for her quilt at the Festival.
There is absolutely no way I could put a cup of tea or coffee on them. I couldn’t bear to have them stained. So I have taken a great liberty and hope Teje doesn’t mind. I haven’t mentioned that they were also beautifully wrapped in tissue paper and tied with home made tape. I’ve used the tape to make a wall-hanging for my sewing room.
Our Spring and Summer in the UK has been incredibly wet this year so we have only had a few butterflies in our garden. These have more than made up for their absence.
Thank you so much Teje 🙂 I will treasure them forever 😀
