Now don't you just love the mugrugs? They are so cute and fast and fun! I sometimes use old orphan blocks I have laying around. Just make a little quilted block, then trim it up and bind it. I have had non-quilters thank me for the little piece of art that I gave them.

I have a friend, Melanie,  who went back to school for her BSN, and graduated with a 4.0. We had a little get together for her at, of all places, the Fun Depot. We played lazer tag and rode the bumper cars and the go carts. Even took a turn in the batting cages. ( Man, I use to be such a good ball player....)

Anyway, I found a mug I wanted to give her, and I just had to make a mugrug to match. (The rug is a bit wrinkled as I had it all rolled up in the mug before I remembered to take a picture.)

She liked it. (The mug says: "A good friend knows how you take your coffee. A GREAT friend adds booze!!)

Today I'm hoping to get a quilt on the frame. I have been itching to run the old Juki and try some new freemo patterns.

Enjoy the weekend.

Really cute mug and rug. Love the saying on the mug. I had a friend/coworker that when we had to go to after work picnics always brought a bottle of Bailey Irish Cream in her purse for that one purpose. It made for a delicious cup of coffee. Have a great weekend!

Booze ... maybe that's what I need to get well (sick a month now). Darling cup and rug ... I haven't made any of those yet but they're on my list.

I've been looking for the right beginning rug to try, your strips and checkerboard fits the bill. I LOVE simplicity!

I have really like the mug rug and I want to make one. It's just that I have so many projects either going or on my list that I can't find a place to do one. But, maybe I will be able to make some for gifts next year.
