Sewing with Friends...............

 
 
"Here's a mug rug for you,
and a mug rug for me,
We'll have a snack,
Some cookies, or tea" -unknown

 

I swap with a group of friends....the same group who we did a couple of Robins with........I showed you the Round Robin we did in my last blog and am currently working to finish the beautiful Row Robin we finished swapping in December.  Now we are working on smaller projects.  This month we swapped mug rugs...........For my first request I asked for a mug rug having to do with New Mexico because I am a New Mexico native......Lynette made this gorgeous map of New Mexico with the Zia Sun Symbol!  I Love it Lynnie! Thank you.:)

 
I was supposed to send something to Mary, who only asked that it fit in her 8"x8" mug rug box in her living room.  Since it was close to Valentine's Day I sent this to Mary.  I found the pattern on Craftsy....I believe it is called "Floating heart" or "Hearts Afloat"....or something similar.
 
 
 
I sort of got a bit ahead of myself because I found another Valentine pattern I liked so I sent this to Lynette so she could use it this month......
 
Aren't mug rugs fun??

I LOVE my mug rug and still have it out and using it each day. The mug rug that Lynette sent is brilliant! That fits the request perfectly. I also really like the heart one that you sent her. Bet she was crazy about it!!!

Yay! I'm glad you liked your mug rug. I LOVED mine too. Like Mary, I still have mine out along with the one I received from Irene. They are so much fun!
