February Christmas Through the Year…

Here is my February finish for Allie’s Christmas-a-long: 1

It’s a mug rug for my Christmas present box.  I got the pattern from Nickles Pickles. Just click on the translate button on the right and then on the mug rug tutorial. Didn’t it turn out cute!!! I’m going to have t make more mug rugs!

I have been AWOL because I have been sick with bronchitis for a couple of weeks.  I put off going to the doctor for 11 days before finally giving in and going.  I kept hoping that it would just go away on it’s own since we don’t have any real insurance to speak of and I didn’t want to spend the money on an office visit.  When the coughing got to be too much for me I gave up and hacked, wheezed, sniffled my way to the local clinic.  After a shot in each hip, steroids and antibiotics I am finally feeling a bit more like myself. 

I don’t really have much else to show for the month except for a bunch of “started” things.  Here are a few pictures of the components to a few projects I will finish soon:

I’m sensing that I may have a circle or dot theme going…hmm…

Sorry to hear you have been having such a rough time. Doctors and meds are so expensive. Hopefully now you will get better.
A very cute mug rug and lots of circles. Can't wait to see what you are up to.
