    Thank you! Me too! I wanted to do something a little old fashioned. I had planned to use more of the colors she said she liked, but when I got on a roll, I just couldn't stop. I almost added a picnic blanket and an owl peeking out of the tree, but I couldn't decide on the best way to put them on since it was a thought that came after the foundation seams were done and getting the effect I wanted at that point would have been a challenge.

    Hi CAS,
    I'm sorry I didn't post sooner I received my Mug Rug Saturday and have been trying to get a decent picture since then. First I had to charge the battery then I got a picture but then I tried to post it and couldn't get it sized down to a size that would load to the board.
    I love the Mug Rug it is perfect it is under my tea cup on my night stand at this moment. You are doing better at FMQ then me I haven't even tried it yet so don't worry about it, it is great.

    Again Thank you,
    Donna C.

    These are the mugs rugs I sent to marytoddliz. She had quite a time the other day, but wanted to post these. So I will make it easier for her and post them myself. Glad you liked them Marybeth !!

    Donna, I just love your mug rugs! That is such a neat valentine design and coordinating fabric. Where did you find the kitty design? When you posted that last week I was thinking... oh boy, I wonder if that will be mine.

    I think everyone is making adorable mug rugs. Insulbright I would think is fine. I used it in a tablerunner I made last month as well I was thinking hot dishes on a table.. that is what my dinner ones are for to keep the hot dish off the table aside from looking all pretty so it certainly wont hurt. I did find quilting it if I was not careful gave it a bit more pucker than regular batting when the needle went through on the back. so slow and larger stitches stopped that.

    I have had silent partners now two months in a row however they did make their items and post they received. They simple didnt chatter. Its frustrating a bit because I like to get to know my partners. The non secret thing is great because then its a sure thing (or closer) you write, you talk you know they are excited to receive your item and you theirs. Here you dont know if they will post.. if they like it.. if people are going to follow through with their items. Usually if someone posts I am working on it .. the hostess can then know ok they are alive and well and participating.. and we know the same.

    I mailed my two now waiting on go for mine. Tracibug want to trade an easter one maybe? I have oodles of easter fabric.. pastel easter or bright easter. I am up for another trade with you if you like. pm me I still have to mail another one i have made as an extra for my friend Sharon in NZ. She has these adorable new baby kittens Sharon post your kitten pic so everyone can want to hug them to pieces too. so cute.

    Thanks Nelda. I think it would be wonderful to have a place for all the photos. Especially with this mug rug swap there has been such variety and inspiration created by every one.!!!!!

    Yay Donna, I'm happy you like it! I took a picture just in case. I did NOT take a picture of the back where my attempt at FMQ really shows, I found an easy way to get pictures the right size. After you upload them to your PC right click and "send to mail recipient", there should be a prompt to send a smaller size. Then just mail it to yourself and save that picture.

    I'm loving seeing everyone's mug rugs! Mine is in the post but have not posted a pic so that it's a surprise. Nothing received my end yet, but it will probably have to travel a long way.......waiting is part of the fun!

    CAS - my fmq is also a bit dodgy especially on the back! I'm hoping my partner doesnt mind tooooo much! Lol!

    Oh wow, I just clicked on the link and see that I have already posted one photo but there are lots of comments. Maybe you could put at the top of the page not to leave comments, only photos, or is it too late?

    I got my lovely gift from Gina today! She sent me two mug rugs and a beautiful dark green mug that matches the backing and binding on the bigger 'rug'... I'm having some coffee in that mug right now. The cute "coffee" theme rug has a spoon pocket with a shopper lady on it (funny) and a beautiful quilted motif for your cup to sit on. I moved the mug to the side so you could see it, I hope. She also sent a smaller Valentine mug rug. I have that one at my computer and the bigger one where I sit and knit in the living room. Thank you so much Gina, for the super gift!

    Same for me Lynnie, my swap partner received her package on Monday. I haven't heard anything to date, maybe she is out of town. I really am enjoying seeing all of the variety on these mug rugs.
