An unexpected finish - or not that fabric again!!!

When I came into the office on Wednesday, Heather, our lovely Early Intervention Teacher, had organised our Christmas Do - a breakfast at a local cafe next Wednesday. I am on annual leave, but DH should be able to look after the boys so I can sneak out and have a good time lol.
Part of the arrangement is a $5 Secret Santa - there ain't much you can buy for $5 nowadays!!! Mug rug came to mind straight away, and this morning I dove into my scraps and came across a good old friend (and there are still some more leftovers!!!). With two layers of cotton batting and one layer of insulated batting this should hopefully work as mug rug or even as a kind of trivet.
I might just have to get rid of the rest of those scraps - I saw Rhianon, the Nifty Sitcher, do a slashed top recently, maybe that's where these will end?
If I don't get to post again, have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and I can't wait to see if Wendy and Dawn are going to run another Sew It's Finished next year because I already have stashed up on new UFOs this year!
Happy Sewing!

Ok, so once I set Image Resolution to "small" it worked - in case others have had similar issues?

Great colours and a fabulous gift for $5

I'd be more than happy to receive that. I did the same for my party. Great use of much loved scraps
