OK, I wasn't so sure about these mug rug things when I first heard about them...I mean honestly, is it useful?! But when my guild was doing a swap, I couldn't help but sign up. The swaps are one of my favorite parts of what we do - they stretch me to make things I wouldn't normally make, and I love seeing what everyone comes up with. People are so creative! This was a grab-bag style swap, which means we don't make for a particular person. For this one, we were to include a mug in the finished product that inspired our design. I had some leftover strips from my sea glass mini, so I couldn't help it, I made an even mini-er one!
I was lucky enough to get this:
Lucky Duck Designs made this fantastically graphic little mini that is such a fun, punchy green. I have it right by my sewing machine where it can inspire me while I work. And look at that cute mug! Thanks Colleen, I love it!
