Have you been following the "April Showers Mug Rug" blog hop this week? There have been so many pretty projects posted and it's only the first week... so much fun and inspiration!
When this blog hop was posted, I immediately thought...
"April showers bring May flowers"!
And this week has been dark and rainy every single day in my neck of the woods. We are soooo ready for the showers to result in something good!
I had to include some galoshes in my little mug mats ...
one has the galoshes on the front, and the other on the backing.
And I used two of my favorite stitchery blocks in my mug mats.
These are two of the (free!) embroidery blocks posted last year by Clover & Violet in their Garden Steps project. Hop over and check out their wonderful designs.
I had so much fun turning these hand stitched embroidery blocks into something useful.
Both mug rugs have some machine quilting and hand stitching.
I made my mug rugs the perfect useable size for your favorite mug, or tea cup, or cold beverage glass.
I just love this photo...see the "courage" through the glass?!?
If you would like to have one of these mug mats at your house, leave me a comment below. I will pick two winners at the end of the hop.
Thanks to Madame Samm and Madame Erin for organizing all this quilty fun for us!
I encourage you to visit my other mug rug friends and see what special projects they are sharing today...
