Mug Rugs and Hail

I've been a busy girl. I got my mug rugs finished for my swapper partner, Dianna. They are applique mug rugs. Now I remember why I don't particularly like applique. I'm not too good at it! I bet the ones I get from Dianna will be ever so much cuter. I can't wait til we swap so I can show and tell.

I can show this rug mug I just finished:

Can you see my feathers? They show up the best on the solid lilac. These are some triangles I had left over from my Purple Mountains Majesties Triangle Quilt.

We had a terrific hail storm last night. I've never seen such a violent hail storm. It dropped buckets of hail on us, we still have a little 24 hours later.

Looks like we have snow again! When I was little I named a doll Hail (or Hale, I don't think I could spell yet). I think I named her this because my aunt always sang, "Hail, hail, the gangs all here..." I guess I thought Aunt Harriet was talking to my doll! LOL
