Peace



You may remember this lavender/purple mug rug I made a couple of weeks ago. A run to a different Dollar General yielded this "Peace" mug which matched the mug rug already made. My hubby's coworker's father died recently and this set with a sympathy card placed on her desk made a sweet condolence gift.

I plan on keeping several of these different themed mugs on hand for various gift occasions.

I can just imagine how many different Christmas sets I could come up with!

The cup and mugrug are so pretty together. I think that's an excellent idea to have them on hand, ready to give them instead of having to rush out and try to find something.

What a blessing to your husbands coworker. Very nice.

I was praying for you and yours this morning since I saw the terrible storms that happened in the south. So good to see this lovely mug and matching mug rug this morning. I'm going to try to find a Dollar General today. We have many dollar stores but not sure Dollar General. What great ideas for Christmas.

Debbie~ How cute, love the purple. How big did you make the mug rug it looks like a nice size. I have never quilted but this looks like a nice small thing to make. My daughters birthday is coming up and she loves Faith Hill, so I bought her the Faith mug last year and this year it would be great if I could make the mug rug. Thanks for the idea, you don't mind me snagging it from you do you??

Blessings,Joann

What a sweet thing to do! I am sure the co -worker was touched. It is so pretty. Love the colors! You are always doing something clever. Because of your post on houseplants...it inspired me to transplant all of mine. Thank you.

Was rushed yesterday and did not read your blog, so am late in commenting. You know that purple is one of my most favorite colors. This is a priceless remembrance for one experiencing grief.

I might even try my hand.

We are safe and sound after the violent storm. Have a wonderful day.

Debbie, love both this purple set and the other green set. Both mugs speak volumes. I love the simplicity of them. A very thoughtful gift for sure.

Practice first.... Sew once!

I worked on the monogrammed bags I am making for Christmas gifts over the weekend.  I had already been successful with one bag.  The monogra...
