Heat got you down? Craving the cool kindness of fall, the savage winds of winter? Do you refuse to give up hot coffee in the morning even when it is 110 F (43 C)? Well you could probably use a Mug Rug to go with that steely attitude. Please join us for the 4th Round of the Mug Rug Swap.

I was so close to joining last round, decided not to, and then regretted it after going through the awesome gallery.  I'm not going to make the same mistake this time -- working on my questionnaire right now Wink

Sent in my questionnaire. Smiley I've wanted to make mug rugs for a while now, but every time it comes to making it for myself, I just end up quitting and making a gift for someone else. O,o

*sigh* I really can't stay away from swaps can I?  Roll Eyes  I've been wanting a mug rug so badly! And it'll be just the right amount of project for me to be able to fit into my schedule. I guess I have to sign up.  Cheesy

Looking forward to another round!  I just love the mug rug I received in the last swap.  And had so much fun making mine, too.  Smiley

There is really no reason not to join the Mug Rug Swap. The small canvas does not allow you to over extend yourself with time or materials. It is why I love doing this swap. I am glad to see veterans coming aboard for round 4.
