Happy Valentine’s Day

Mug Rug for daughter M who loves elephants.

Mug Rug for daughter M who loves elephants.

A few weeks ago, I had big plans to make my 3 daughters and my special girl friends a mug rug for Valentine’s Day.  Unfortunately, this is the only one I actually made. I came down with the flu and couldn’t get myself motivated to work on them while not feeling well. I purchased this pattern from Craftsy. The designer is Amanda from The Patchsmith. She has many adorable mug rug patterns for sale for a small price.

A mug rug is a cross between a coaster and a placemat. It’s just big enough for a mug and a muffin.

While I was sick, I did do a bit of heart embroidery. I’ve always had a fondness for hearts because my husband is a pediatric cardiologist and this is also the field I’ve worked in as a registered nurse.

I have so many special woman in my life (and men but I don’t think they would use a mug rug). Sorry I didn’t get to send you a pretty little goodie this year! Love you and happy Valentine’s Day.

    Linda, I have just not been able to stop thinking about your elephant mug rug so I bought the pattern! I got the owls on a branch too. Thanks so much for sharing your project and inspiring me to make my own!
