More mug rugs!

My finish for today is the other mug rug that I needed to make for a Christmas present.  My friend is away until tomorrow so I’m not too much in trouble for being late.  My friend Nancy owns a grey parrot that thinks she is its mate.  Nancy loves her bird as well.

I almost like the back better than the front.  I used my home dyed fabric because it was just the right colour.

I received this mug rug in the mail from Quilt Sue.  I love the colours and the embellishing stitches.  So pretty with such simplicity.  I always seem to make everything so complex.  For all the mug rugs I’ve made this is the first one that I own!  It’s not really droopy on one side – I think I need to iron it.

  1. I think your mug rugs are real works of art and I would never be able to use one, I would hang it on a wall. They are gorgeous.
