I am in the Scrappy Mug Rug Swap for the first time. This round we are making holiday or winter mug rugs for a known partner, so we are only able to show sneak peaks. (By the way, my partner, Guiltyquilter is awesome, so I am working hard.) I am not so good at sneak peaks, I couldn't really figure out how to do that as I went. Anyway, this project filled the last two evenings and now I am done.
I really love the result but I am still new enough to swaps to be nervous that my partner won't like it. On this one, however, I figure that since it is a mug rug, it will be hard to go too wrong, at least I hope not. I have to figure out what else to include in my package and send it off tomorrow.
Here is my second photo in my view from my window series. The sun was still rising as I took this at 8:00 a.m. today. We had no snow at all last Friday, you can see the accumulation in a week. It is starting to look like Christmas! I am off to buy new winter boots this weekend, fix my favourite mittens, wash hats and gloves for everyone, etc., as it looks like the colder weather is here to stay.
Enjoy your Friday!
