Susan-Claire from Gourmet Quilters sent me these absolutely beautiful mug rugs for the Quilting Gallery mug rug swap. No prizes for guessing which country she lives in!!
I am just blown away with their beauty, the lovely fabrics and the stitching!
Even the reverse side is beautiful!
And there's more - some charm squares and a bookmark. Makes me want to travel to that beautiful country.
Then I heard the news . . . about last night's devastating earthquake and I felt sick from the shock. My prayers go out to the people of Christchurch and anyone who has family or friends there. May your loved ones be safe.
My mug rugs are on their way (hopefully they will have arrived by now) to another continent.
Then another swap in a Yahoo group I belong too, with more mug rugs!
This blue one is for Susan.
And here is Fiona's batik rug and mug cosy for me. Thank you Fiona - I love my drinks really hot!
If you're inspired to make a mug rug for yourself, you can find the instructions here.
I'm sorry to have been so quiet these last few weeks. I must be a bit run-down as I've had Shingles for three weeks and was feeling pretty rough. I'm on the mend now and back to my old self! Its lovely to be back.
