    I just received a squishy package in the mail today and inside was this adorable mug rug from Linny! How pretty! I love it! Thanks so much! You did an amazing job on it and I love the soft colors you chose to use! I will keep the label on the back...makes it even more special. The first picture is the front and the second one is of the back with label.

    Hi everyone. Here are our new kittens Max and Marley which Elisabrat insisted I should share with you all. They are 9 weeks old and so much fun!
    Elisabrat is my not so secret mug rug recipient and we are having a great time conversing. This is my first time doing a swap on this board and I got all excited at getting my recipients name I made contact not realising that staying "secret" was not optional. Well, as we both like to chat we are having a great time emailing from opposite sides of the world. It has been a week since I sent the parcel Elisabrat so it wont be far away from you now. I haven't recieved my rug mug yet but am getting very excited aniticipating it.

    Hopefully I have attached the photo correctly and you can see my new fur babies

    I have had my Florida resident mug rug partner on my mind since Sunday when I mailed the package. It's -40 today where I am and I can't help but think the mug rug is heading for better times with my partner.

    CAS I sewed it on when I had the three layers together. Put the rick rack between your two fabrics that are right sides together and leave half the rick rack stickout out, add your warm/natural, then sew all around but leave an opening to turn inside out. I saw one with rick rack on a previous mug rug swap and wanted to give it a try. Easy to do!!

    I got my MR's today and I love them both.

    THANK YOU rwquilts for making me two totally awesome mugrugs.
    Like I told you in the pm I will be hanging them on the walls with
    all the other doll quilts and MRs that I have received.

    wil post pictures tomorrow when my battery is charged again (both
    in my camera and myself LOL).

    Those kitties are adorable my hubs saw them and he asked who's
    "kids" where they my reply was someone on the QB they are New
    Zealanders. His reply "oh so they meow upside down than?"

    He had me laughing to hard I had to walk away from the stove before
    I burned myself.

    Ronda - thanks again for the awesome MR's I truly LOVE the purple &
    yellow.
    Louise - Ya-ya to Zachary April 13 2015. I collect mugs from the U.S. and around the world. Also collect handmade pincushions, sewing/quilting themed fabrics, and fabric in general.

    They seem to spend a lot of time upside down thats for sure! Hanging off things, falling off things, climbing my bare legs. They are great time wasters.

    I think this thread is the best one I have ever seen on the QB. I am so enjoying seeing all the MR"s and getting to know all of you better. I, too am tired of snow and cold. We shoveled today and should have used the snow blower but after we came inside, it began again so we will have a chance to use it tomorrow, especially after the city plows go by and dump all the street snow in our driveways. Cuts a lot into my quilting time, so I am not happy with winter, either. I don't mind snow but I want some clear, sunny days in between so we can have a break. Ok, I will quit complaining. My days are better than many of yours. I am glad I am not a bookkeeper/account. Momma_K...what you wrote gives me a headache just thinking about. I am still waiting to receive my MR and it was fun to send my practice ones to other folks here. Now I will go look at the pictures of allof them. thanks Nelco for setting up a page. Lebrat..(Linda) did you notice how I used the bird scrappy you sent me? :-) Thanks ever so much!
    She who dies with the most fabric, didn't sew fast enough!

    Work in Hornby so NeedleArts is handy. Have also shopped in Cottonfields, Fabric Vision and Art of Sewing in Riccarton - I'm very flexible! How about you?

    The puppy you sent me is perfectly happy to be keeping me company at work. We don't get many visitors in accounting, but everyone whose seen it has said how adorable he is. Thank you again!

    and i just got remeinded that my MR went over the oceans so it might take a while, so if u are over the ocean and think u were forgotten, if u are mine, the anser is no, its on its way, did not realize some of these took so many weeks to get over to other countries, 3 weeks for aus, another swap and 5 weeks and waiting for Inda, go figure, lol anyway, cant wait for feb, oh love those kitties and why resize i love them as is lol,
    SPREAD THE LOVE-- hug a child, share a smile, be kind, and let a loved one , and an animal know that you care,,,, it costs nothing but a minute of a day, so do not delay.

    Pat, No you are not the only sending out at the last minute. There are quite a few that have not notified me one way or the other. Some have not even acknowledged the fact that they received their partner’s info. So that makes me think they do not check their inboxes. >>
    > >
    If you have sent or received your Mug Rug and have not let me or your partner know then you will be going into the naughty corner until you can be good. PLEASE PM me with the information---I do not want to look all over this post for it. >>
    > >
    For the ones that have been good. You all get a double gold star.

    P.S. Please lets keep our comments to ourselves. We do not know what might be the porblem

    Oh yes, been to all those places. Have you been to Needlearts recently while the half price sale has been on? The Make Cafe at Bush Inn is lovely too,you can have a nice coffee and check out the fabric. I get some fabric from Lincraft and Spotlight and bits and pieces off trade me.

    I love cottonfields because they have lots of models of things made up. I recently bought a bag pattern from there to attempt. Just got to get all the kids back to school then i might try it.

    Told you the kittens would be a big hit. They are so cute I just want to grab them and accidentally put them in my purse before I go home. and resize? are you kidding. Posters would be better.

    I love everyone is getting mug rugs it would be lovely to see the pictures hint hint. Are the cameras charged? I asked one of my partners to please post and so far no news from that end so I think no post will be coming. shoot. I didnt take pics. Time for a new camera here but at least the hubby has his Iphone so I can still put some on as they come in. Sigh.. maybe tomorrow. lol I know where my not so secret pal is sending from so I am patient. Kiwi I promise to hollar first moment it comes! honest!
    Linda
    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.

    My First Mug Rug

    This is my first mug rug swap - and this is the first mug rug I have ever made; I hope my partner likes my simple design - I tried incorporating some of their favorite colors. Hopefully it will arrive by Saturday.

    So glad you liked your package. And the tissue holder will be loved by Aleigha. The tissue holder is a free pattern from Connecting Threads. Both were fun to make. I too like the lady bug material just had to buy it!
    You are very welcome.
    may you be in heaven before the devil knows your dead!
