No more orphan blocks

From classes and experiments and such, I had about 30 orphan blocks (that I could find) so brought them with me on our holidays (and a sewing machine). While hubby was golfing, I sewed them pillowcase style into mug rugs. Some still need the opening for turning sewed up, and they all need a bit of quilting. 

My daughter picked two already. She lives in a humid climate and loves them for soaking up the sweat from a cold glass on a hot day. I've a few ideas of where to send the rest. They are an odd batch though!

I also brought a small quilt to sew, but so far no progress. We are having too much fun. We leave for home in three days, so it will go back the way it came.

What a great way to use up those orphan blocks. I should do some digging around for a few things for our next trip.

I'm glad you had a good time in the warmth. Your winters are way too long.

What an excellent stash of small gifts you have ready to grab and give!
