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!!  Cheesy

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  Cheesy  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!!   Grin

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!!!!!   Smiley

Flaw?  Seriously, what flaw?  This mug rug will be a holiday gift for my best friend.  If I didn't already have plans for it, I would have put loops on it and hung it on my wall!  It's really lovely!

jl409--whoa--what an adorable mug rug!  I would just keep the "flaw" on the down low...Cheesy...ha ha "what flaw?" is right.... Cheesy  I love the image...and the colors...and...

cabaute--I will tell you what the trick is to the "perfect" binding...it is fake! Cheesy Perhaps I should do a mini tutorial on it! ha ha  Glad you like it...the little heart in the stamp is my tribute to fellow mod and friend Leslieshappyheart, whom you admire (as do I!)...

The level of talent in this gallery is unbelievable!!!  I can honestly say I love every single rug here!

This picture does not do it justice, but it's the best I could get....And it still looks awesome!

I love her art and this is just perfect!!  I think she crawled into my brain!!!  Smiley

This is going on my wall, not under my mug.  Smiley Thank you sooooo much!!

I'm loving the new rugs everyone has posted!  Some amazing works of art!

I received my own work of art from cmarion3!  She created an apron from a napkin and some scrap fabris from her stash!  It is amazing work!  And she sent a recipe tucked into the pocket.



Thank you cmarion3 for such a lovely mug rug!
