Two Flower Friday & A Mug Rug

I spent Tuesday morning looking for something in my sewing room, and I made such a mess that I had to spend most of Wednesday and some time on Thursday putting it all back together again.  In between bouts of cleaning and straightening, I sewed these two hexagon flowers.  Thank you Karen at Journey of a Quilter for hosting One Flower Wednesday. 
And, I also made this mug rug.  The little 9 patches finish at 1 1/2" inches and are left over from a quilt I made last year.  The flower was part of the cheater cloth that was included in the Fresh Flowers fat quarter pack that I ordered. 
This mug rug was machine quilted. 
 We had more snow overnight.  It doesn't look like much, but there was freezing rain and sleet underneath it.  I shoveled the driveway today (about 75 feet X two cars wide) because I knew the snow was too heavy and wet to use the snowblower. 
In fact, the snow was so wet that it just rolled up when i shoveled it, so I made a snowman.  The photo isn't very clear, but I think if I went back out and decorated him, he would look like Snoopy.  I sent the photo to my daughter, and she thought it looked like Gandalph from Lord of the Rings.  Either way, the neighbors are probably calling the Neighborhood Watch block captain to keep an eye on me. 
I hope you found some time to stitch today.  I'll stitch tomorrow while I'm recuperating from shoveling.  Thanks for visiting!

Wonderful flowers, excellent fussy cutting, beautiful fabric!!! Also, a very pretty mug rug. The back looks just as good as the front. The same wet, heavy snow hit here, it sure was a workout!
