  1. I'll return later to see your pick of the day, Mme Samm, I saw so many lovely ones, can imaging your having difficulties to pick today favorites. I had a great start of the week hopping around!

  2. Madame Samm they are all little works of art and what a nice way to start the day! I hope you enjoy yours...

  3. Checking the new mug rugs was a nice way to start the day. I'll check back to see if my p choices match yours :)

  4. Have seen some really cretive mug rugs today - you really do have the hardest job of all picking from among all this talent. Enjoy from Judy C

  5. So inspiring, but gotta say - love all the daisy's and Mary @ Crooked Gulley Art Quilts, took my breath away with the bird - amazing. You have a tough job:)

  6. Oh I have a few that I think you might be choosing for the top picks. I'll check back and see if they were the ones you chose. So many lovely ones this morning...are you having a tough time choosing?

  7. You must have had a 'hard day' today, choosing from all these beauties.

  8. I told Carol that I knew one of her mug rugs would be one of the top picks this morning. And she asked for help?! I told her I might need her help from now on! Lol. Those other 2 were very creative too and I thought at least one of them might make it here too.

  9. There were a lot of great projects today! Hard to choose top picks, right?

  10. Again the ones I love most. Great job.

  11. Oh, my...everyone had winners today!! So much talent on this day, you were kind to choose one of mine...must have been Bruce crooning in your ear!! Evan will be happy to hear of your photo praise, he fancies himself quite the photographer. I loved seeing all the creativity from everyone...those little bearded guys might have stolen my heart :) And Carol, oh my, that big white posy she fronted with was a beauty though I like your choice too!

  12. I think I was a step behind you for a bit this morning, commenting right after you in a few stops. What a wonderful morning of eye candy!

    I did have one question about mug rugs though---are you supposed to use insul-bright in them, insul-bright and batting, or just batting? Oh, oh it looks like I may be considering actually making one though it won't be nearly as spectacular as the ones shown today either! Not today but maybe once my bird hop selection is completed.

  13. What a great collection today. There were some really creative rugs today.

  14. It's another day that I am glad not to have to choose my favorites. There were so many fabulous mug rugs today.

  15. Another wonderful day of enjoying all the creative mug rugs ... sew much fun ... :) Pat

  16. Another great day! I stay up late just to check out everyone's great mug rugs! They were all so creative and cute.

  17. Good Morning, Madame Samm. After having a rainy weekend, it was wonderful seeing so many beautiful mug rugs today. They were all so creative. But one person (and I won't mention a name) really outdid herself. You will need to wear your thinking cap to outdo her.lol
    I would choose A for the eyes on your Diva. For some reason they just seem more expressive.
    Have a great day!

  18. I am in mug rug heaven! Everyone was a winner with their fantastic creations.

  19. Tough job picking the best today...what a lot of fabulous mug rugs!

  20. I am back from my visit in Stockholm and have hopped a lot today. They are so wonderful the mug rugs today. And my favorite today is the rain drop shaped mug rug. Yes it has been a wonderful mug rug day today also, as the the other days before.

  21. Fabulous creations today. There isn't any possible way I could have narrowed it down to just 3 or 4 top picks. Carol really set the bar high. Madame Samm, better get busy. You need to make 10 mug rugs to top her. ; )

  22. I am loving all of the mugs rugs to match the cups. I've been looking at them on Pinterest.

  23. Another fabulous day!! Hmm, I'm thinking that Madame Samm has her work cut out since Carol went into hyper drive with her creations (lol). Great inspiration from everyone.

  24. How in the world can it just keep getting better and better?! LOL

  25. Such creativity in today's picks They could all get the label Most Creative!

  26. Thank you, thank you , thank you. I couldn't have done it without you. You and your hops just bring out the very best in all of us. Your creative mind is contagious.I am just one ear to ear grin.

  27. Today's mug rugs were such fun to see! I can't wait for more!

  28. fantastic mug rugs! I'm finally getting time to get my ideas together, do I send you pictures or do you find me when I post them on my blog? lol!

  29. I think the creative forces working on this hop are some of the most talented people around. It seems that it just gets better everyday.

  30. Another awesome day of mug rugs! There are so many talented people doing this hop! I look forward to seeing all the creations everyday!

  31. Great top picks for today. My favourite is the one with the umbrella and ducks on the pond!

  32. Great projects for Mondays hop. I'm hopping a day behind today. I too am chooseing the duck and umbrella one as my favorite.
