    Cute! I have been making mug rugs for gifts. I'll have to try sliding a mouse on them! Always good to have an alternate use.....

    How big are these blocks? I did some 6" ones and they look much smaller than these. I also did pieced star blocks so they may be too "lumpy" to be stable under a cup and certainly not smooth enough for a mouse. I may have to rethink my method. Thanks for the great picture.
