Mug Mat Swap Revealed!

 I think I mentioned that I had participated in a Mug Mat Swap on Brynwood Needleworks Blog
  Everyone has been receiving their mug mats in the mail, and I received mine the other day. This is a pic of the one I received which was made by Carol at Serendipity Blog. Carol is very talented, and I love this mug mat. The best thing is that it is MINE! I never make anything for myself so I will really enjoy this. I also love the beautiful fabrics she chose.
 This is the back below. It's just as pretty as the front.


    I also want to show you the one I made for the swap. I found an old floral quilt block at an estate sale. I added some other prints that I hoped would make the flower stand out. 

 These are so much fun to make. I had made a previous post linking to the tutorial that Donna made on her blog. It should be listed in my January archives.


 Thanks, Donna, for hosting such a fun swap, and for the chance to get to know other fellow bloggers with the same interests.

WOW! that is perfect for your decor!

I think all creative folks love to share with others and that explains why we never keep anything we make.

The MugMat you create is perfect as always and lovely choice of fabrics.
