 Not much going on here this weekend.  Much too beautiful outside to stay inside my dark sewing room.  I did get another Hexie Mug Rug finished.  I'm going to make some out of Christmas Fabrics just as soon as I get up to the Attic Window Quilt Shop to purchase some of that gorgeous holiday fabrics.
I also made one of these Pretty Pockets.  This is a discreet and spirited way to secure post-surgical drains after Breast surgery.  I got the pattern from Creative Blossoms.  A couple of years ago I made several of these pockets and gave them to Lacks Cancer Center in Grand Rapids.  When I heard my 92 year old friend tell about her bridge partner who was having surgery and would have the tubes, I made one for her to give to her friend.  They are so pretty and quick and easy I think I'll make some more for the Cancer Center.

The Halloween Hexie mug rug is just adorable, Caroll. Christmas ones will be a treat. It is so kind of you to make the bags for the Cancer Center. So sad that we need them at all.
