April Showers comes to an end....however more blog hops will be springing up

April showers comes to an end but not without an outpouring
of gratitude for our lovely creators, quilters, sewers, enthusiasts of 
everything spring. Thank you for being such great cheerleaders...
And YOU ALL SHOWED UP ! BONUS

And leading this hop was Erin who managed to keep us all together
and provided us with some excellent tutorials on how to make us 
better bloggers. Thank you for that and more...

I am likely your last visit of the day....
I share my day with these lovely ladies
who embraced spring as much as me...
( the list is below, I tried to add it to the top
but somehow it scrambled my whole post )


Here is my pouring of MUG RUGS! 



Ok, you may have noticed immediately, I did not create anywhere near the amount 
that OTHER LADY created....She did 9 yes I counted them...
Some of you even reminded me of this...( you have not been placed on THE LIST btw) lol
That other lady knew how much I had on my plate these past few weeks..
but no excuse she WON fair and SQUARE...I will beat her next time..
( not that we are at all competitive..so she says..) But did you note she also was most
creative on her day..nough said ..wink...?



You may have noted this year, I am soooo into black, white and red...
It may have something to do with my passion for gingham.... red and white...
EVER since RBD ( Riley Blake Designs) came out with their gingham,
I began thinking I need some gingham dishes..
If I could register this pattern with this company I would ( my husband thought
this was funny, you only register when you are about to get married lol)
 .....I am purchasing
a few pieces at a time....so far I have a couple plates, mugs, egg cups and 1 bowl..
I think it may be my new SPRING obsession...

So I made this fairly large mug rug so I could have my breakfast outside
with my fruit and oats... to match of course...
and a coffee bubble compete with french knots...seemed a perfect team!
Ohhh that coffee cup thingie hanging from my cup is not a graphic
it is a tea ball..except it is sitting in my coffee cup...thought it would be a nice
bling....Goodness me who has bling in their coffee? lol
I do ! 

This spring I have noted many many ROBINS, so it was time to bring out my
ROBIN cup and go figure it matches with my red, black and white ROUND
mug rug. I made this one with 3 layers of PELLON Batting so it would 
be very thick...it is ....it will actually make for a great hot pad too...
Ahhh dual purpose lol


My next one I created with Ro Gregg's collection, which we happen to be giving away
on Monday....This cup is fairly large 10 oz, so this mug rug is also large...
I wanted to create different shapes...I like this as Ro's collection
really makes a statement.....like a BANNER! 
And with her gorgeous flowers...makes for a lovely spring mug rug! 
Don't you just love her stone looking fabric...( the blue) it almost looks
like a suede...



And my last mug rug, I shaped it like a tea bag complete with tag..
but of course mine would say coffee...I even dipped the tag in coffee
to stain it.... The brown part is a pouch..you could put a tea bag
in it or a love note....TO YOU! lol 

So there you have it....I certainly did not make a splash 
like that OTHER LADY, but I do hope I brought a smile or two..

OHHHH and look I have a giveaway too..
101 ( yes 101  4 x4 squares )  of Tokyo
and a pattern!




Thought this would make for a great win for a 
future blog hop...will let you know about that 
one very soon.... it is called " PUT your STAMP on it"


What are YOU looking forward to next?

Winners will be announced on Monday! 
Gratitude to Fabri-Quilt an Ro Gregg for a very fine
giveaway...OUR sponsors are really amazing to deal with
time and time again! 




Or next blog hop is
begins next week....5 days of POM POMS.....


HERE are my delightful colourful, creative ladies I shared
my day with ...




OUR TOP 2



This lady is always busy as a bee...it seemed so fitting that
as our last top 2 choices she be here again...
YOU have to buzz on over there and see what else she created..
Everyone will be a buzzing! lol


This is so delicate, with the ric rac and stitching....it reminded me of an old fashioned photo...
a lovely addition to our top 2 and she made it in time too for judging..whewwwwww


MOST CREATIVE goes to.....


This lady created this amazing pot...would you believe each one
comes out as an individual mug rug...YOU will be chatting this one
up..LOVE her colours, looks like a rustic pot...her flowers crisp
and bright....a delight to behold.....

  1. As usual, your creations are beautiful! I'm not sure if I like the red, black and white large rug or the tea bag best. I think the larger one get the vote, but I'm not sure if it's the design or the fabrics. Doesn't matter, it's just beautiful. Thanks for all that you do and sharing your talents and creativity with us so very often.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Love the robin mug rug, and cup. I think it is perfect to register your dishes. If you are like me, I never have ideas for gifts from people for Christmas - love this idea:). Course, I am also available for fabric enabling:)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Sew much to comment on today. End of a hop, seeing that yes, you did get your mug rug selection done-----all manners and shapes of them too. Lovely and clever--- all of them---. Red, white black---your signature colors but nary a ruffle in sight? Maybe that Diva got it out of your system, temporarily.

    Of course, the top 2 and most creative selections are front and center too. How cool was that flower pot idea! And the buzzing bee.

    Ro Gregg's fabric is gorgeous and a big thank you to the sponsors for the round. Those that are lucky enough to win a packet will be blessed by those bright cheery colors and subject matter.

    A giveaway chance is just icing on the cake. I love doing bowties and make them in about every conceivable method and various sets over the years for pro bono quilts. How pretty in that fabric line! Any one would be a lucky duck to win your drawing. THX for that opportunity!

    A big "thank you" to you and Erin and all you do behind the scenes to keep us blog hoppers and participants entertained. That things (seemingly?) go off without a hitch shows just what those feet dog peddling beneath the surface do to make it happen. Then you and the head cheerleaders just barely catch your breath and it is time to hop again! Wee Erin-- adorable!

  31. I love the bluebird...they all look lovely..

    ReplyDelete
  32. I am smitten like a kitten with a new ball of yarn! Your tea bag mug rug is perfection! Perfect for spring tea parties and so easy to individualize for each guest! Thanks for sharing this amazing creation!! Your other mug rugs are swell too...just that tea bag has me running away pn a creative exploration this morning. Thanks for such a fun idea packed hop! Looking forward to more hops! Beulah

  33. this blog hop has made me a fan of mug rugs now I need to get sewing, but I have a test in June I need to get studying on...FIRST

    ReplyDelete
  34. Thank you for choosing my little bee as a top pick!
    Your mug rugs do not disappoint! How perfect they are with your dishes! (Do you have Mother's Day in the spring there? If so, you could register those dishes and let your kids know. They would be great Mother's Day gifts!)

  116. Lovely, lovely, lovely...as always. I do love that china and smiled when I saw that it matched your first rug! You are just so darn creative...to decide to make each of your rugs in a different shape was inspired. Each is wonderful but my favorite was Ro Gregg's - cool shape and wonderful fabrics.
    I so enjoy the hops and don't miss a day to visit the bloggers and see all their wonderful designs. The creativity is endless. Thanks, Madame.

  119. I am looking forward to my oldest son coming home from college for a second. He is doing an internship at school, so will be home only a moment before he returns...somehow it is never the same once they go, but I am also looking forward to becoming an empty nester and back to the way we started 23 years ago!
    Love your sweet mug rugs, thanks for all you do. I do so enjoy the blog hops, even though I don't have one myself!

  123. I have been enjoying all the Blogs hops for a long time, but I have only recently made comments.
    This time I have to speak up. In my opinion, this is the very best of the hops.
    Every Mug Rug is so special and I have my mental file full of wonderful things I want to make.
    Thanks so much to you and all the cheer leaders for all the hard, time involved effort you give to all of us... There is so much talent in Blog Land!
