    Here is a photo of the wonderful mug rug I received from Nelco. I love it and some wonderful tea to enjoy as well as a great postcard. Hope everyone had a great weekend.

    Here are two photos of the mug rug I'm sending to my swap partner. She likes yellow and lives across the ocean from me. I hope she likes it. I put some wool on the edges and zig-zagged over it.

    I'm finished with mine and they will be in the mail today. Heading NW of me. I wasn't happy with the binding on the first one, so did a second using the backing folded over as binding (please don't rat me out to the quilt police!). I decided to send both since my recipient is married and might want to use both.

    I was the recipient of this handsome fella. I sent Mary a pm to let her know he arrived safely at his new home. He's perfect for me as winter is my favorite season and I love snowmen.

    Lucky you Dabbler! Love your mug rug! I mailed out some packages today, including my mug rug, heading east! To a zipcode totaling 10 if you add them together!

    I agree...super cute mug rugs so far...can't wait to see more! These are a couple that I sent out today, but to someone in a different swap, so it's okay to post them here. Had fun making them. As you can see they are for Valentine's Day.

    I got a really neat mug rug today from Mawluv! I love the different fabric she used and all the different quilting techniques really add accent to the fabric. Thanks a bunch I will use it with pride.

    My lil chili dipper (Dusty hates when I call him that! ) shipped out mine today. The postman should be delivering it on Thursday. He was supposed to put something extra in it. I told him it should be either candy or mug related, so there's no telling what he picked.

    I still have to quilt mine, which should happen after school tomorrow. They're kinda large, like mug rugs with delusions of placemat-hood, but that's just more room for snacks, right? :thumbup:

    Well I received the cutest Mug rugs you could imagine. I know I saw the cats posted, I will go hunt them up so you can see them again! (I am truly sorry, please don't let Linda AKA "leBrat" hit me because I gave her a big ol' promise that I would post pictures today) But my secret pal Donna H-M sent me a really cute cat mug rug and a Valentine one. They are truly adorable, thank you so much!

    Now on to my HUGE excuse as to why I still don't have any pictures... I went to the PO, boy was it crowded, I mean crazy the day before Christmas crowded... The rates changed and you would think that everyone in this little town had to go and tell the Postal workers their opinion! I heard a lot of complaints, and I heard a lot of well why don't you just raise it to 50 cents and be done with it!... OK you get the picture I was there a really long time!

    When I finally got to the Post-guy I handed him my packages and a few letters and said I want to mail them and I want confirmations, he smiled and was very nice, OK where do you want me to send this one? Oh boy that would be my Mug rug and darned if I did not put the address on it! So then I had to go back to my Mom's house down load the address put it on the mug rug, going a really really long way away... (that was a small hint) then I decided to stop at walgreens since it was closer, got in to the camera dept and realized that I could not find the chip from my camera! (don't be to surprised, usually I can't even find the camera) but I had just had it in my hand, I remember it in my hand when I was talking to the guy at the post office... Well I went back to the PO and the guy remembered me, asked me if I had the address on the package, yup... oops AGAIN! didn't have the package with me! But he did have the chip, small miracles happen in small towns, they remember everyone!

    By then I was tired, and had to meet my sister at the retirement home so we could have dinner with Mom. my sister and my Mom both think I am the one who might be in need of assisted living! Tomorrow I repeat the day, hopefully with better results! And the totally strange thing is, I usually am not quite so bad!

    So my very patient partner is going to get a Mug rug that has a story, and Linda Lebrat' can't yell at me too much, because you ladies won't let her~ Right???
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    Mine is all ready to go and will be shipped out tomorrow. Here are three clues as to who it is going to;

    1. zip = 22
    2. I haven't been able to find any posting from her.
    3. Here is a pic of the back with her favorite colors.

    LE BRAT IS BACK. HAH you think you can stop me from razzing you? you are oh so mistaken Ms.Marytoddliz I think you absolutely need razzing but not for what you think. ITs for stealing MY MESSED UP DAY. were our moons aligning? did our witchy things get together and say hey girls its TIME? sheesh. now I wont tell you about my day. nope not going to mention MY postal experience nope nope you cant make me. but you can beg and maybe?..

    oh fine bet ya I beat her silly excuse for getting free laundry service, food three times a day and well all those other perks at the assisted living. Ready? I left the house to go to the post office and market and pharm. Ok get to the post office figure heck no one in the lot will zip on in and mail my packages. Yeah! I put things on the counter and here things begin to decinigrate. First off I had put this table runner for a dear friend on the counter. Going to give it one more quick over. I had put it in the drier with a damp cloth and a static thing to help pull any cat hairs that might have snuck on it before I sent it. she is allergic. What I did just before I left however was say. honey can you take a pic he says put it down over there and he would so i did. thanks! put it in the bag. ok take a look at it under the florecent lights and think holy hell there is CAT HAIR on this. For the next thirty minutes with a damp rag I am wiping looking wiping looking leaning down sideways. ok clear next section and so on think ok check the back put it back on the counter RIGHT IN the area where I had wiped stuff off on. ok then wipe, lean down, wipe lean down. finally I think we got it all. I had her check with me when I finished a section paranoid oh no please no more. GREAT tada one in a box. Second is a small set of these cool little boxs I found for a member here so pretty mother of pearl and great. I put them in another box so they wouldnt break. we wrap them all up in a box tape it shut I put her first and last name and then say hey where is the mail to? couldnt find it. call home nope its not there. ok look in the truck. nope its not there. She is kind enough to say here is my phone number just call me I will add it and you can pay me tomorrow dont worry. such a sweet post office lady. I go to the pharmacy. they need blood work insurance giving them trouble wont pay. oh ok let me go find that for you. otherwise its over 180.00 um not. so go to get won ton soup forgot chinese is not open go to market to get stuff make it myself. come home light inside this brain goes on. uh the address is inside the box that is now taped up ready to mail. The girl is sweet enough to cut the box open get it out and retape it for me.

    Great day huh? oh and the shower. not happening. see the doc called at 10 am to cancel and reschedule on me for the fourth time. so.. winners day? I guess. i made a good soup, sewed a bit, got out and got fresh fresh air. learned how sweet that girl is. also know I get the first opening at that adult home before marybeth can even think of moving on in.

    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.
