Children, flowers, cats, and a beautiful day in May. Put them all together and you have a perfect recipe for mischief and mayhem. The May mug rugs for my Children and Pets at Play silhouette series was inspired by my cat loving friend who begged me to show cats this time around. The pattern includes three pages of instructions with photos, templates for the silhouettes, full size layouts of each mug rug showing placement of silhouettes and locations for embroidery, plus black and white photocopies of each mug rug. The photocopies are in response to a request that my quilting lines be shown. The quilting is far from perfect, but they do convey a sense of movement these little scenes. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Basic quilting skills.

When I retired from a lifetime of teaching in 2007, I was worried that I'd quickly get bored. That concern didn't last long at all. I was thrilled to discover that there really is life outside of the classroom. I spend parts of most of my days indulging in my favorite hobbies of quilting and sewing. I started designing patterns as an experiment, and no one was more surprised than I was to find that other people liked my little designs. I'm a teacher at heart, so I do try to write my patterns in such a way that beginning quilters can follow them. I include lots of details, photos, and little informative notes. I make myself easily available to my customers, and I respond to all questions as quickly and as thoroughly as I can. Contact Information: Blog:, Facebook Page:, Email:
