    Okay, Nancia, you should get a prize or something for such a creative mug rug. And, the fabrics you chose really make it all pop!

    Would you consider doing a photo/text tutorial sometime? You are a terrific out-side-the-box creator!!!!

    Your any-shape mug rugs are so creative. My favorite is the red/black/white!

    The not round mug rug are so pretty, and my favorite is the one with the sweet face.

    Poor postie, look what he delivered to my door this morning

    First photo: Thankyou so much LindaC for the gorgeous mug rugs, love them all and each one so different. Had to sit right down and read the magazine and spied the 'Crunchy Cheesecake' recipe towards the back..so guess what's for dessert this evening

    Second photo: These are the beautiful mug rugs from nancia - we did our own little swap - I love the 'beach' theme and the mugs rugs are so cute - I especially love the fish one. And nancia also sent me a little 'Life's a Beach' tote, a ever so cute purse notepad and some tootsie rolls - I am becoming especially fond of those

    What a fun swap this has been.

    just when you think it's safe to get out of the water!!! i have rec'd beautiful mug rugs from my partner shirley! i love them! i have taken pictures and gone through the resizing ritual, including the sacrificed lamb and the fat 1/4's to the quilt gods, so maybe these fotos will post!
    well, i guess the gods require wine too! sorry will try again later. perhaps i forgot the ritual chant...!#$^^#%^&*UT$R$!! that should do it!

    The round mug rugs were a fun swap and an opportunity to meet a new swap partner. Perhaps another unique theme can be suggested.... hint... hint! My creativity has a long way to go when I see all the wonderful and fun creations that are submitted to view. Thanks for coordinating this swap.
