I am joining the Colette Mini Bloomers Swap
Welcome to the fake swap!
oooo--you late senders don't make me give you negative feedback!
I finished! Less than a week late...
Here's my mug rug:
The colors are a little brighter IRL, but I didn't want to wait for sunny conditions. It has a few scraps that I've been hoarding waiting for something special, and a strip of fabric from my grandmother's stash that my mom remembers from childhood. Also a good time to practice free motion quilting! I think I'm improving. The batting is an old towel.
In action, with orange spice tea and white chocolate chip cookies.
I have to admit, when mug rugs first made their appearance on craftster I though "how neat! and useless..." but I'm fairly certain I'm going to use this all the freaking time because it's just so fun!
