National Mug Rug Day!

 Did you know today is National Rug Mug Day?

Mug rugs have become quite a big thing in blog land. 
They make lovely gifts for friends. 
I usually buy a mug and then try to match fabric to it. Sometimes I have the fabric and then have to try to find a matching mug. That is a bit trickier!

Looking back through my photos, 
I have made a few mug rugs.
 I always try to make one that I know 
the recipient would love.
My lovely friend Shez of Enjoying Life just loves mug rugs!
 You should pop over and visit her blog to see her collection. Mug rugs have been arriving in the mail 
with no names on the envelopes!
 It's a bit of a mystery really!
 I made this one for a Winter Wonderland Swap.

I scanned the Snowy Owl on the mug and
appliqued it onto the rug.
Then there's the signature mug rug I finished this week.

I've also got a couple I haven't blogged about before.
These two mug rugs were from me! Hehehehe!

Pop over and say hello to Shez and check out 
all her gorgeous mug rugs!

Happy National Rug Mug Day!

Who the heck decides on these Days?? I log in to read a few of my favourite blogs and everybody is saying it's Mug Rug Day! You've made some lovely rugs, Christine - I went mad on them a few years ago, and everyone on my birthday and Christmas list got 'em ;-)
I think I must have burnt myself out because I haven't had the urge to make any ever since then!

Beautiful mug rugs there Christine, and I do love the look of the co-ordinating cup! x
