WINNER IS MARY
#1 congrats my dear...
please send mailing details
( everyone else...thanks for joining in on the show.
very appreciated)

Hello! I'm Carol, better known to some as "mamacjt" and I'm thrilled to be back on Stash manicure again. When our dear Madame Samm asked if I'd do another segment, I wondered what she (and you) might like to see. Should I do a small tutorial? Should I talk about color and/or design? Exactly what might thrill and inspire you? Then it came to us like a light............I'd just show you a bunch of my mug rugs. (Perhaps a bit mundane, but colorful none the less since I do like B R I G H T!!) So, just sit back and enjoy because today is not tell..........it's just show.

And those a just a few. You'll find the rest here so if you're so inclined, just click and take a peek!

Oh...and one other thing. I thought a mug rug would be an appropriate give away for today, so this little beauty can be yours if you'll just leave a comment. Samm will let me know who is getting this beauty so I can send it out. Good luck!

So you know how it is..leave a comment here on  Stash Manicure on which one you thought
was my best creation....and come on over and visit me at my blog..
leave me a comment there and you will be in the pool for this draw
of this mug rug.

I love the first one, the rug matches that cup perfectly - did you do the cup also? You are so talented!

  44. I like #1. Too pretty for a mug rug, looks more like a postcard.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I´m just like you are. I love colours in spite I dress very calmly. And I say to myself every time I begin a new quilt that I will be low with the colours but it doesn´t help. I just love colours. Your mug rags have really inspired me. Thanks for the show.

    ReplyDelete
  46. What a wonderful, different, inspiring, colorful Show (and Tell). I love them all - even the ones that didn't make it here. How can you chose just one - that's like trying to eat one potato chip. Thank you for a delightful post.

    ReplyDelete
  65. All of them are wonderful! But my favorite is #3, the bird with the hearts. My second fav is the snowman. You are such an inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  66. All of your mug rugs are great. How can you pick a favorite? Number 1 is probably my favorite because of the matching mug, but the frog is funny, I love snowmen, the birds are cute. Love them all. Thanks for the chance to win in your giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I just love all of them but especially the funny little frog #14.

    ReplyDelete
  70. thanks for showing us these. I like them all, but I'm voting for #3.

    ReplyDelete
  71. They are all beautiful. I particularly like #5, the Dawn mug rug, because I have a daughter named Dawn. She has always been an early riser, living up to her name!

    ReplyDelete
  72. I was browsing flikr yesterday and sent myself 10+ links of cute mugrugs and several of yours above were on that list, so random! The unbirthday one is my favorite, #13... but I really like #6 because my mom's name is Dawn. Thanks for the great inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I love them all! Thank you for sharing them, and your creativity

    ReplyDelete
  74. They're all so great, how can I choose one? I have to say, though, I do love the Christmas trees a lot! Gives me ideas for this year's co-worker gifts.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I loved each and every one of them! Your sense of color and design is WONDEROUS! I'm headed over to your site to look for the rest of them now (I did't see a clickable link to the rest of them and I wanna see MORE, MORE, MORE!) Wowza! I love all your stuff Carol!

    ReplyDelete
  76. They are all so much fun! Then I checked the blog and more fun! Yes, I've added it to my subscription list. I think if I had to pick a favorite it would be the unbirthday.

    ReplyDelete
  77. These are so fun, are some of them machine embroidered? So creative!

    ReplyDelete
  78. I love brights, too, and #1 is my favorite. I also like #12 and #13. Thanks for all the ideas!

    ReplyDelete
  80. #13 is my favorite because EVERY day is my UNbirthday! I'm not getting any older, you see! tee hee! Loved them all, really.

    ReplyDelete
  81. They are all so cute. I could narrowit down to #1 and that very cute frog. I really need to make a mug rug and soon.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Really Carol, just one that's a favorite. Nothing like asking the impossible. When you do such a fabulous job on everything you do, it's not fair. I love the frog, and the wonky flying geese, and, and, and ... Where is your egg mug rug, I saw it a couple weeks back on your blog! :-) Your just too darn good girl! I wanna be like you!! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  83. Carol - You are such an inspiration to us all with your wild abandon to color and your whimiscal approach. I truly admire your work and everything is just eye-popping. My favorite mug rug is the mouse in the red & white polka dot cup. I drink my beverage of choice in a red & white polka dot mug just like it, but if a mouse ever popped out of it like that, I'd be GONE. LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  84. Enjoyed your show and tell. I love the frog, just makes you laugh. However, all the mug rugs are really cute.

    ReplyDelete
  85. I'll take all of them! LOL How can we pick? OK, my favorite would be the round birthday one! Or the Christmas presents! Can't decide.
    Happy Mug Rug Day!

    ReplyDelete
  86. LOVE LOVE LOVE! The bird with the long legs! Thank you so much for sharing!

  88. I LOVE them all!!!!! I do like #13 and have that song stuck in my head now! lol So very colorful and bright!!!! I'm LOVING mug mats right now and wish you had patterns for all of them! :)

    ReplyDelete
  89. I love the concept of having the mug rug match the mug! I have a black and white mug, my favourite that I think I will make a matching rug for!

    ReplyDelete
  90. Love them all!! It's so hard to choose but because I have to I'll go with the frog. For some reason I want to call it the fairy frogmother....lol

    ReplyDelete
  91. I like the unbirthday and the snowman. So cute.

    ReplyDelete
  100. You are truly my inspiration - I check your post out every morning on my 'must check' list. I love your work - I am trying to learn the freedom of combining drawing and quilting.

    My favorites are #2 and #3.

    Hugs - Marie

    ReplyDelete
  101. This question is TOOOO hard! I love the frog, but the tilting candles on the Unbirthday quilt are such a wonderful design element I have to say it is my favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  102. fab, fab, fab. if I am required to choose then I will choose well... the multi-colored brick road (4th from the top). Perhaps it is a fav pick because it is not my normal style.

    ReplyDelete
  103. It's impossible to pick a favorite Carol - that would be like having to choose my favorite of my three children. :) I love your work and I covet your incredible color sense. blessings, marlene

    ReplyDelete
  104. Oh my Heavens, your works is amazing!! There were several that spoke to me but I love the Christmas Tress, the quilting is stunning, and I love the presents! Oh my, I love the bright with the french knots, Oh, I love them all!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  105. must I really pick just one? I am a frog maniac, but also tending towards the current modern trend with color and crisp white - please don't ask me to pick just one! Even the presents would be a good present.

    ReplyDelete
  106. I love them all! But I giggled when I saw "make a wish". Love the inspiration! thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  107. wow, they are all sooo cute. the mouse, the frog and the bird..adorable. but that little snowman with the pam letters, its the 'm' made from candy canes. CLEVER!!!! my first visit here, I'll be back. :>)

    ReplyDelete
  112. I love all of them but the Xmas packages are my favorite. Love your work!

    ReplyDelete
  113. I love them all, it's hard to choose. Although the unbirthday one is a great one, I think my favourite is the one that copies the mug (which makes me want to go to my happy place and make one to match my new mug!)

    ReplyDelete
  114. I love how the cup matches the flowers in the first one. I also love the Christmas rug. They are all very cute.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  117. I think they are all wonderful but I think I like the mouse in the cup #12 I think.

    Karen

  118. Thank you for the post. I like all of them but I guess #4 is my favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  119. Amazing show! Actually I love them all, but my FAV is #11 which reminds me of white curtains blowing in the breeze with beautiful colors showing through.

    My second FAV is #4....the bright colors in strips remind me of a yellow brick road...

    Thanks for showing all your mug rugs!

    Karen

    ReplyDelete
  120. I love them all and am hard pressed to choose just one. If I must, though, I guess I'd pick Number 14. So cute!

    ReplyDelete
  121. I love the first one. I'm a daisy girl and those bright flowers are perfect. Thanks for sharing all your pretty creations.

    ReplyDelete
  122. I visit your blog every day, and I am so impressed with you talent on fabric. I love your mug rugs. I couldn't pick one, because any of them would be a treat to have. Thanks for such a great show...

    ReplyDelete
  131. I love all the mugrugs, but I'm especially fond of your birdies, so I'e gotta go with #3. Or the frog. I love the snowman, too. They're all wonderful.

    ReplyDelete
  132. Wow, I love ALL of your great Mugrugs and to think I have been looking all over for a pattern I liked. I have a box of small scraps that I have been saving for pin cushions and mugrugs but I'm not to creative so I need patterns. At least now I have some ideas, LOL. Thanks so much for sharing and now I'm headed back to see ALL of your mugrugs. Love em, absolutely love em! Hugs...
    (by the way, I have been a follower here for quite a while now)

  133. I think #4 is the best at first glance...Love how colorful it is. But, all of them are so very creative and Happy!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  134. These are NOT mug rugs, they are works of art! I love the #12, the little mouse in the red polka dot cup, it is so cute!

    ReplyDelete
  135. They are all wonderful but I fell in Love with the one that matched the mug. Awesome!

    ReplyDelete

  141. I had such a hard time choosing when it came time to vote on the mug rugs, and now I see that my favorites all belonged to you!!! lol lol The frog made me laugh so it did get my favorite vote in the end, however I really love the presents one as it reminds me of your envelope and balloons with the way you colored the fabric ... then again, the story behind the "happy unbirthday" rug is too good ... lol Thank you for sharing such marvelous inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  142. I think I'd have to vote for #12, the teacup mouse! Since we seem to be a haven for all the little country mice in our area....

    ReplyDelete
  143. It was a tough choice, but I'm going to have to pick #3. Love the hearts!!! Love your blog!! Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful work.

  151. It was difficult to choose just one as a favorite but I have a fondness for snowmen. I also like how you put a name on it. I hadn't thought of that.

  153. I really thought they were all a work of art but I did love the first one where you matched the mug rug so well with the big mug. Thanks for the bright show.

  154. They are all amazing, but I would have to say the oval "unbirthday" is the one I would pick. Thanks for a chance to win!

  155. It is hard to choose as all are so appealing. If I have to choose tho, the facial expression on the mouse in the cup just appealed to me! So cute! Your work is fantastic.

  156. I couldn't pick a favorite! They are all so stinkiin' cute! Of course, I'd never use them either, they would just have to hang on my wall so I could smile everytime I saw it. Thanks for the fun giveaway!

  160. These mug rugs are adorable and make me think that I might even be able to do a little quilting.

  161. These are just soooo cute and have so very much personality!! You are amazing... I loved #2 but could think of a friend each would have been perfect for. I may have to try something but could never compare with any of your creations :)

  163. Love them all...# 7 might be my favorite ...or #8..I just can't make up my mind! Beautiful work!

  164. Those are all GREAT! I'm so inspired, especially by your use of rainbowish colours. I work in the world of co-operatives and the rainbow is a symbol. I've been wanting to make co-op mug rugs for my colleagues so thanks so much for the inspiration.

    Love #1 - brilliant - and #9 - and love the effect of the binding on #11. Where's #10?

  165. Gosh! They're all wonderful, but the one I went back to the most was #1 - I loved that the sewn flowers matched the ones on the mug...and I'm not usually a 'matchy' kinda gal!
    :D

  166. All your mug rugs are beautiful. Thanks for the inspiration. I made one mug rug which does not come close to your lovely work.

  167. They are all fabulous but I like #4 because of all the color in it. It just shouts "Hello"!

  168. I love number 7, but that wasn't an easy choice, they're all so cute! I had to visit the blog to see the rest of your work! Beautiful and so fun, I can't wait to try my hand at some of this stuff!

  169. They are all inspiring to look at. I am going to enter because I am a fan of your art. Hard to choose between #1, #5 or #7, but #1 is my choice.
