Mug Rug Monday

Standard

I have always been in love with the adorable little, and quick, mug rugs.  I collect them in a bowl in my kitchen so that I always have something to set my coffee on in the mornings.  After a long time of thinking about designing my own little rugs, I have designed my first in honor of February.   Fun and finished in about an hour.  Quick, easy and free!!2014 February Mug Rug Color

I must be a total pinhead today because I can’t manage to upload the pattern for you onto this blog.  Until I figure it out if you want a copy please just reply with your e-mail address and I will send you a black and white pattern with instructions and supply list. 

Enjoy…bee happy.  Karen

Mug Rugs are sooooo cute!

Well, here are my swap Mug Rugs for the Quilting Gallery.com swap. They are so much fun and so quick to do. I did the owl with hand applique, the Scharon Schamber way with foundation paper; and, the bird with fusible and a small machine blanket stitch. I love them both. I made the blanket stitch super small to reflect the overall size of the design and love the way it came out. These patterns, along with several other really cute designs are available on the Craftsy site. I will spend some time this weekend trying to learn how to upload buttons to make it easier for you to find things.

Wouldn’t this be a really fun guild exchange?

Meanwhile, I found a great thought today and it really fits me…. “if I were more organized I’d be able to keep up with my organizational list!” Trying to catch up this weekend after a great week of quilting with friends, two workshops, and a guild meeting! (not to mentions allergy issues-sigh-got to love Houston!).

BE HAPPY….Karen
