Halloween is such fun isn’t it? We lit the pumpkins and the trick-or-treaters came knocking. But that was yesterday and today is November!
A new month brings with it a new Across the Pond Sew Along project. This month Amy, from Amy Made That has chosen ‘Apples’ as her theme and she is showcasing a nice selection of projects to whet your appetite. And Susie has already made a very pretty patchwork table topper.

One of the projects Amy mentions just so happens to be the very project that I have chosen - Lori Holt’s apple blocks.

And if you decide to make a mug rug for this month’s project and you want to add quick corner triangles to the back – here is how to do it.
2. Pin them to the top two corners of the mug rug at the back.
3. Bind the mug rug as you normally do and the corners will be stitched in place at the same time.
4. Then all you need to do is insert a chop-stitch or twig into the triangles and hang your mug rug from a nail or tack.
So now you can make all the mug rugs you want and display them as a collection. And when you do, don’t forget to post your photos to the Across the Pond Flickr group so we can all have a look.
Sew until next time ......................
