Whatsa Mug Rug?

Have you ever heard of such a thing? Not me!!! ('Course, I'm old and don't get out much anymore......BUT, wouldn't you know it, they are having a mug rug swap on Flickr and NATURALLY, I had to join.) The swap hasn't even really started yet, and partners haven't been assigned, but I just HAD TO try my hand at this. Now, I'm a Diet Pepsi girl, so don't have lots (like ANY without dumb pictures of cars on them) mugs, so had to go shopping. Awwww....what a shame! I was all over, but TJ Max seemed to be the best for variety and expense. Thursday I picked up two and yesterday, I made this:

Big mug - little matching rug

Now the really funny thing about this is........I made about a million cute doll quilts, right? Some that took 3 whole days. This crazy little thing took about 3 hours, start to finish, and it made EXPLORE on Flickr today. What's with that? None of my doll quilts did! Goofy! (But, guess who'll be making more?) I was back at TJ's yesterday. Anyone need a new mug with matching rug???

Your mug rug is sooo cute!!! I love it. Think I'll have to try my hand at it.

I've been checking out your blog for a couple of weeks now and your work is so inspiring. You are very talented and I love how you have so much fun.

That just makes no kind of sense................except...................this is totally adorable, and tiny, and perfect, and eyecatching, and makes me want a mugrug, which I have absolutely no need for in this whole wide world.

Stop tempting me with things I DON'T need.....I'm compulsive, don'tcha know?

Beeshebags said...

THat looks absolutely fantastic. I've just discovered your blog off someone's blog roll...and couldn't resist coming over and checking out your mug rug....I can tell I'm going to have to try and make me one now. If the mug rug is anything to go by, then whoever gets the say so of what goes on EXPLORE...must've been blind when checking out your doll quilts. Hugs Naomi from Australia

This is a great one. I never knew what they were until I received one along with my Dolls Quilt. Aren't they fun? Now I've just got to make some, better get over to Flickr.
