    Mug Rug Bug

    I've been snooping around here for almost a year now, and have finally decided to start a new thread for the first time!! First let me thank all of you for your great ideas, designs, techniques, etc that you have shared. I have grabbed many and even ran with a few.

    Thanks to some posts earlier this month, I have caught the mug rug bug!! Within a week I made thirteen of them to send to my senior mom in her Christmas package. She is 85 and in an assisted living residence. They will be perfect for her to give to the staff members. Seems only appropriate that I can give back to her, considering that she started me down this crafting road about sixty years ago! I had so much fun making these - trying different patterns, quilting styles and binding methods.

    A big welcome from the state of Texas. Your mug rugs are beautiful. I know your Mom will love giving them to the staff and being able to say my daughter made these.

    I love all your mug rugs. I took pictures, as you say you get so many ideas from what others share. I see so many possible ways to use the left over blocks from other efforts. Thanks for sharing.

    Congratulations on your first post - it's a terrific one! You really did get bitten by the Mug Rug Bug. You made wonderful mug rugs! Thank you for sharing your ideas... it's an especially wonderful idea to make little gifts like this for those in professional care to be able to give their caregivers. You Mom will be so tickled! Kudos to you!
