National Mug Rug Day

This post is dedicated my my dear friend Shez.
You will find her over at shez-enjoyinglife.blogspot.com.au
My Photo
-Mug Rug Definition-
A mini place mat hand made by quilters and stitcher's alike.
Fabric is usually cut up into tiny bits then re sewn with lace and trimmings added for effect.
They can also be intricately embroidered or labelled with smart ass quotes.
So get cracking and make one today.
Every quilter should have one! (Not)
If all else fails find some one who loves them to bits (Re- Shez) then bombard them with lovingly hand made mugs rugs through the post.
Have a great day my friends.
Hugs
Tracee xx
