    Hi my name is Jamie and I am addicted to Pintrest. I have to limit my time majorly! I have 89 different boards and I actually have used, done, or made alot of the things I have pinned. Its great for homeschool and kids craft besides inspiration on alot of different projects.

    I received my very pretty mug rug today from judee. I will post pictures either tonight or tomorrow. Thank you so much judee. I will be using my mug rug daily. It has little lady bugs on it, and such pretty spring colors. She also included a nice card with a beautiful picture on the front. A great swap partner.

    Wow, everyone is mailing out so early!!! I haven't even started mine since the deadline is June 7th. I guess I better get started so my partner doesn't think I've forgotten or got lost. LOL

    I will attach the most touching story which I just received. I hope my partner doesnt mind!

    'And greetings from Texas.

    Here is your mug rug, made with you in mind. Of course I patterned it after several things that I saw when visiting Sault St. Marie Ontario, ( which I know is not the area in which you live). I hope you like it as I had a lot of fun making it.

    The maple leaf block represents the fall foliage that was just beginning turn colors while we were there.

    The bear claw block represents the bear prints I saw while stopped at a national park as we, rode the Algoma RR into the forest.

    And of course the flying geese blocks represent the beautiful geese that I saw in Sault St. Marie. And we had a pair spend a few days here at my apt. complex a few weeks ago. I suppose they wanted a rest and our little pound looked good for them before moving on along home.

    The light blue in the geese pattern represents the clear waters in the streams, rivers, and waterfalls, we saw while riding the train.

    And lastly the red represents the red maple leaf in your flag.

    vanginny , you are right ! that is lovely. i have been to sault ste. marie many years ago, and it is a wonderful place, bringing back memories of a stellar trip across southern canada ( as far north as Banff and Calgary) and northern usa. a lifetime ago! canada is a beautiful country! and that is a beautiful mug rug. not surprised it is full of meaning! texans are also wonderful people !

    HEY I thought that Nelco posted her in the forum it was MAY not June mailing deadline am I missing something? I think you had better get sewing ladies. go back a few pages she did say mailing date was May and a lot of us said wow we thought it was later but its not so Nelco clarify that for the mailers please.

    I think those were very cute mug rugs. the first posted! I heard mine is in the mail so I will be peaking at my post office often for their arrival from WeeFi!!

    Sorry for the confusion. Since the sign up went so fast and closed early, I figured I would change the mailing date. But if you are on the June date - keep it. I am very flexible.

    Please DO NOT stress about the mailing date.

    I feel like it is a holiday for me today. I arrived home from work to a good size package with many treats inside. The most spectacular is the paper pieced mug rug made with perfect points, beautiful colors and this will definitely be the talk of my school tomorrow when it is placed on my desk for all to see. Thank you, Mizmelly, you outdid yourself.

    More nice mug rugs and goodies. I sent mine out today to judee. I also wish I could always send out goodies, but finances are tighter now. I love sending extra goodies. I am just happy that I got my mug rugs sent out earlier by the updated time given. Very nice swap.

    Thanks Nelco

    I wish that I could always send goodies too. My reasons are a bit different though. For me, it's having the time and energy to go to the store usually (I work full time and have 2 side jobs too, plus I suffer from depression). I asked Dusty to pick up a mug and a box to go with this swap. He comes home with a postal box that is 14"x12"x3-1/2", and he didn't get a mug! So, I got a box from work and made a run to Wally World (Walmart) at lunch to get one. I didn't find what I wanted to match this project, but I found one I loved, so I got it anyway. For anyone who is keeping notes, all our dishes are that Asian inspired square red & black motif, so if anyone wants to send me a red & black mug, it'll be used lots! I have to kinda hide the others for "we're out of clean cups" emergencies because it doesn't match in the cabinet, so the resident engineer goes all wonky on me.

    You are very welcome, Marymazz! It was fun to make and gave me so many other ideas for mug rugs! I whipped out another 4 for my mother and family for Mother's Day. And now I want to make mug rugs as gifts for Christmas this year!! So many great ideas!!
