I've made a MUG RUG

Now I too have a mug rug and I love it!!!!

I have seen mug rugs on several bogs, and they have all said it is addictive to make mug rugs. And yes it is.
So while making my own mug rug, I made three more. Some months ago when Hanne and I visited Bente we got some wonderful mugs, travelling mugs as Bente said it was. And I picked fabric that matched the mugs and made mug rugs for all of us. Bente and Hanne got theirs when they arrived here for our advent weekend.

Thursday was my quilt guilds meeting (will show you photos from the meeting later) and both Hanne and I brought our mug rugs with us. It is perfect for my mug, gingerbread cookies, chokolate and thread. Even useful to pin my needle there :) Did I mention I love my mug rug.

I guess you all remember the challenges between Hanne, Bente and I. Last time we met it was Hanne's turn to give us a challenge. And this is what we got. Two stripes of yellow fabric. and the text on the challenge was: A lot of light and warmth (lines from a Norwegian song).

And what did I make :)

A MUG RUG of course.
I told you they are addictive.
I have to make more.

Don't forget about the challenge/giveaway in my previous post.

Saying for today:

Because we can't call people
withouth wings angels,

we call them friends

(this is the saying on my mug)

Hanne said...

I love my new mug rug - thank you very much :-)
It goes well with a piece of chocolate or a bisquit on the side of the mug, as well as doubling as a pin cushion!

Hi May Britt,
I LOVE those mug rugs, I have not seen them before ! I was thinking they would be good for our quilt guild retreat.
How big are they ? I think it is a great idea to make them with space for chocolate and cookies on the side :-))

I know this is silly, but can you make a tutorial for the mug rugs. Your mug rug looks like the perfect beginner quilt.

I appreciate all of your photos and your blog, thank you for sharing your talent with so many people all over the world. Quilted Blessings to you and your adoring blog fans!
