Anyway after some sewing and unsewing I finished up with these
I am much happier with these, and the mug actually fits inside!! Yahoo!!
The stitchery is finished and pinned to the backing, now to do the appliqué and hanging sleeve. I have enjoyed stitching this but am happy to have the finish..I have checked all the arms and legs and am confident no one is armless or legless! Now I need to do somereally boring sewing...yep I have to hem some new jeans!! But first I think I will go for a walk, the sun is shining this morning and it isnt super windy.
Have a great day.
