Mug Rug and a Hug

Hello my friends, have you ever heard of a mug rug?
It's a cute little mat, smaller than a place mat used to hold your teacup or mug and a small treat.
 
About a month ago Kimberly from
Camp and Cottage Living contacted me
and asked if I would be interested in joining
a 'mug rug exchange'.
 
Of course, I jumped on it.  I was partnered up with Stephanie from
The Enchanting RoseShe is so talented and I knew that my mug rug would be fabulous!
 
When my package arrived, it certainly did not disappoint!

A gorgeous lace tree with bling on top. I also love all of the pretties sewn into the edges!
 

 
And look at the other lovelies she sent me.
 

Love all of the gorgeous lace and embellishments she added.


 
 
Even the tea and chocolate was dressed up so lovely.
 

 
This afternoon I fixed me a cup of hot chocolate and a piece of pecan pie.  I do believe it tasted more delicious than usual.  Could it be because it was sitting on my mug rug? :)
 
 
 
I knew that Stephanie loved pink so I gave her a pair of pink mittens on her mug rug.
 

I threw in a few pink vintage goodies.
 
This exchange was so fun and I'm sending hugs to both Kimberly and Stephanie!
 
And as always,
hugs to you too!
 
Jann
 
I will be sharing with these lovely parties:

It was a joy to have both you and Stephanie participate in the Christmas mug rug exchange! You both did a super job and your gifts were so reflective of each of your personalities I think.
Thanks you to two sweet ladies! Kimberly

What precious goodies! You have started me thinking about mug rugs and fun fabrics and specially chosen treats. So many little delights count up to be one big blessing.

Lynn Bean said...

Oh how sweet! You both are very talented gals!

Of the two, I choose your mitten creation.
I have that flower patterned dessert plates from my mother but I didn't know there were bowls (or maybe its a cup). The search is on.

Gayle said...

Fun swap - I can tell that both of you put a lot of thought into your projects! Our rug group is exchanging hooked rugs & matching mugs at our next meeting. It's gonna be SO fun to see them all!

Stephanie said...

You are just the sweetest, dear Jann :) It was truly a blessing to be partnered with you and I had a lovely time making your mug rug.

I also LOVE the mug rug you made me and you are right, I love my pink {{smiles}} You spoiled me, sweet friend, and I will thoroughly enjoy each item.

I will be sharing your goodies on my blog this coming week. I hope you had a delightful Thanksgiving, dear one. Hugs to you!

How fun! Both of those mug rugs are too pretty to use! I'd be afraid of spilling on them. I just received a heart ornament that I bought from Stephanie's Etsy shop and it is so pretty! All the extra goodies were like yours...all lacy and pretty and sweet. I love her things. I love your pink mittens...did you quilt that?! You girls are all too talented next to me!

Hi Jann, it is so nice to see that you are having fun with mug rugs. I discovered them a few years ago and they make great hostess gifts and they are a wonderful way to try out new quilting techniques. These are so pretty. Wishing you the merriest of holidays.
Your blogging sister,
Connie :)

Kimberley Seasideave said...
