Sometimes I feel like such a slacker!  But then I remember, I have a clean house....and I'm okay with myself again.  So that's what I've been up to!

I love creating and blogging, but sometimes can't get to both, while keeping the kids fed and mentally stimulated and keeping the house in some kind of working order.  So here I am again, caught up.

And here's what I've made. 

Union Jack mug rugs!  (Pattern available here for free!)

These have a special place in my heart, and are made for a special reason.

My husband and I and our three boys will be moving to London in the near future.  We are going to work with a church that is there, and eventually begin other churches.  For those who know the term, we are missionaries.  Right now, we are in the process of raising our monthly support, which means that we are traveling, well mostly my husband is traveling while I stay with the kids who are in school.  We visit churches and ask them to partner with us in our "London Calling."  Thus the free motion quilting on the mug rug.  I plan to make these and send one to each of our supporters. 

I also finished my first commissioned quilt.  Quilt pics to come for this king sized quilt!  It's finally beautiful out here in South more rain and a cool front blew in.  Yay!

I'm linking up today.  Go check out what others are making.
