Mug Rug Swap 3

I can't believe I forgot to blog about this!
Back in December I took part once again in the Scrappy Mug Rug Swap on Flickr.

You might remember my first swap in this group and I loved it!

So I did it again.
Only this time I was shaking in my boots a bit.

My partner wasn't just anybody.
She was a somebody...

Kaye Prince to be exact.
of Miss Print blog fame!

If you don't know of her,
you soon will.

She is the next up and comer in the quilting world of blogging and Moda Bake Shop
and she's CANADIAN!!

This is my most favourite of her quilt designs HERE.

so I set to it and came up with this design...
(mug rug front)
(mug rug back)
I was pretty happy with it in the end --however my machine was having a serious hissy fit so the quilting isn't what I had envisioned.

I think Kaye was pleased, however :)

It was hard to let that one go but soon enough mine arrived in the mail from
Katy! I had asked for a winter/Christmas mug rug and she delivered!
Thanks Katy!

So here's the thing--
I signed up again to do the 3rd swap and it's due to be sent by February 14th....

I have lots of ideas but so far nothing concrete put together so I'd best get a move on!

What was that about not joining any more swaps?

How fun. I love the colors, how bright and fun! I love the rug that you got. That would make me smile on any cold winter day!
You will be proud I got my first sewing machine for Christmas and I have even started a few projects. I hope to blog about them soon.
