~about a doll quilt, a mug rug and good etiquette~

My little monster has been quite ill over the weekend. We've been housebound since friday and I can tell you the walls are closing in one me! The silver lining of spending all my time between these four walls is of course sewing! I finished my mini quilt for the Doll Quilt Swap. Here it is all bound and quilted, still in need of a label and a name perhaps? Suggestions are welcome!

{Doll Quilt Swap 10} Finished!

I've grown to love this little quilt. It's been quite a challenge to come up with something I hope my partner will like. Judging from the extensive stalking I have done she has quite different tastes from mine. But she, like most of us in the swap, would like for her partner to make something they love. So I tried to do both. A little bit of my likes combined with some things I think she likes...lets hope I didn't get it wrong!
I ended up making something quite different from  my initial idea but I still really wanted to execute the 'ceci n'est pas un coq' quilt. So I made this mug rug. It's pathetic if you're the one laughing hardest at your own joke, I know! But it makes me laugh everytime I see it.

Ceci n'est pas un Mug Rug

Something completely different; Kat is hosting a series of posts by different guest bloggers Good Etiquette for the Modern Blogger  Today's day two so there's only one day's worth of cathing up, it's very interesting to read!
