W00T, I received an AMAZING Mug Rug from Linda (alwaysinmyroom
) today!!! I don't know how she knew that I was hoping for a slightly larger mug rug (I kept thinking I needed a bit longer real estate to accommodate my snacks! Did I mention that in my Q? Hmmm I don't think so... She's PSYCHIC!). It is so perfect, in so many ways!
I mentioned that I really loved LesliesHappyHeart
's style of happy colors and techniques, so Linda did an homage to Leslie, which I think is spot on!!
But, before I gush further, let me share... Ta da!!!
I love, love, love it! And oh my gosh, the sewing is so perfect... I am really jealous of Linda's amazing skills. I had NO idea that the two sides were made up of scrappy pieces until I read it in her accompanying card - the seams were so perfect and flat. I really love the spiral for where the mug goes too - I just love spiral designs in general, and the spiral thread is so perfect to mirror a round mug. Oh wait, the last pic was the "action" shot, let me show you!!
And the back is gorgeous too - I <3 the fabrics, and the designs showing through, it is totally two-sided!
I particularly love the tiny teacups stamped throughout - it makes it so perfect for afternoon tea
It's a bit late in the evening, but I see I have some delicious Meyer Lemon tea that is caffeine free (YUM!)... Off for a relaxing sip, and maybe if I'm super careful I will set my mug down!!
Thank you so much, Linda - my new mug rug is awesome
.P.S. I am going to have to hit you up for some sewing tips. I mean, look at those perfect bindings. Seriously!!!! No, seriously!!!!!
