Oh my goodness! I keep trying to go to pinterest all day to look at my partner's likes and it is down! So frustrating! Well I still have to wash my fabric so I guess its not the end of the world. But it sure is annoying! (Especially cause I want to draw out my idea NOW!) Oh wells. I guess I'll just go start a practice mugrug while the kids nap. Woo-is me. Wink

Of course, the ONE DAY I'm not obsessively on Craftster!  And I started using Pinterest because Wist was always down right when I was starting a swap! 

I know!  My mantra is, "It doesn't have to be perfect."  HA!  YES IT DOES!!!  Smiley  Ok, well at least not OBVIOUSLY messed up.  I have learned that sometimes just because something doesn't fit MY vision of the final product it is still very cool. 

ha ha ha. Well thankfully it finally came up and allowed me to scheme and plan. I've sewn some and now am of course wondering if I like the color combo or not. I keep telling myself "Keep it simple stupid" but then I don't listen to myself because I find another fabric that I think might work. Seam ripping might be on the books for tomorrow.

Wow, I'm impressed with everyone's speediness on this swap! I cut and sewed the one side this weekend- love it! Now I'm hoping for a snow day this week, maybe then I'll have some time to get the other side done.
My naughty dog sneaked into my craft room on Sunday (a no-doggie zone) and was caught chewing my tape measure- I think he is a secret crafter!

Instead of doing what I'm supposed to be doing, I'm putting my hand on the finishing touches - or at least enough to be able to bring the rugs to our craft lunch at work tomorrow, and finish them there Wink If nothing unexpected happens, I'll finish this week at least.

Just checking in.  I have not made decisions on my mug rugs yet.  Sad  I have ideas for both my partners thanks to their kindly answering tons of my questions, but I am a little distracted with work and a custom jewelry order I'm making up for a fellow Craftster.  I keep thinking I should just dive in and make my mug rugs, but as I haven't settled onto a specific design yet, I'm hesitant.  I much prefer working when I know exactly what I want to do, and feel really positive about it.  I think that results in my best crafting.  So fear not dear partners, I've not forgotten you.  I just really want to do right by both of you!

I know what you mean, jennieingram. I'm sure your final creations will be worth the wait!

I finally cut my fabric but now I'm second-guessing one of the accent fabrics I chose. I might need to make another trip to the fabric store... oh darn Smiley.

Finally pinned down my idea for Stifflersmom and then proceeded to put it all together because I was just so excited about it.  It is in its envelope and ready to go to the post tomorrow morning.
