In between the million and three swaps I had going at the same time, I did some non-swap sewing as well.
A year or two ago, I made my dad a mug rug for Father's Day. Apprently it is a HUGE hit at his work! People stop by his desk all the time to admire it and comment on it. One lady asked my dad if he thought would be willing to make one just like it for her dad for Father's Day and offered to pay me to make it for her. I don't normally do that because like I said in the previous post, non-quilters just don't get it! But the price this lady offered showed me that she did, in fact, understand all he time and work that went into making something like that by hand, and for my dad, I agreed to make one for her. I am happy to say, she genuinely loved it and was so thrilled with the result. I can't wait to hear what her dad has to say about it!
Have a great summer =0)
