After work this week I worked on this mug rug which was designed to go with the green "HOPE" mug shown with it in these pictures.
I want to give proper credit for the idea of using the Flying Geese pattern for a mug rug. You can see it here on Ms. Pork Chop's Flickr page: FLICKR PHOTO HERE Mrs. Pork Chop's blog is here:Mrs. Pork Chop
I think this makes a cute Spring gift for a friend. Total cost: $1.00. The mug was found at Dollar General and the mug rug was made from scraps.
I've got all kind of other ideas that would make this gift even more special. How about a handmade matching cloth napkin? And Oh! A couple of homemade cookies in a snack size zipper bag or A chocolate dipped spoon!
Sewing plans for the weekend: Make the backing for "Bluberri Breezes", make more mug rugs to go with the mugs I bought, do some hand quilting on the Grandma quilt and work on the red and white quilt as leaders and enders.
