Tea with Frosty! from Quilt Doodle Doodles...

It finally looks like Christmas here in Minnesota. We had our first real snowfall last Sunday night, it was a real nightmarish drive into work for my hubby Monday morning. (3 plus hours!) But the magical white outside inspired me to work on a new pattern for the holidays. A sweet mug rug! Tea with Frosty is sure to delight anyone on Santa's list! Let me show you how quickly this went together! I bet you have fabric in your stash you could use right now! For the background and backing all you need is a fat quarter!

Friday Finish: a mug rug and a boxy pocket pouch from The Crafty Quilter

I have a Friday finish (two actually) to share and neither of them have anything to do with the holidays.  The first finish is from my own tutorial, the Glass Half Full Mug Rug.  I made this for a friend and customer who has been going through some aggressive chemotherapy treatments.  I hope it brightens her day just a bit.

I love the combination of embroidery and applique.  It’s such a happy little project!  And you know, mug rugs make the perfect gift no matter what the occasion.

The Virtual Cookie Exchange Blog Hop from Quilt Doodle Doodles

            I love to bake and with the Holidays just around the corner, my kitchen has been a busy place. The smells of chocolate and vanilla have been warming my home. The Saturday after Thanksgiving is fondly known in my family as 'Cookie Day'. My mom started this tradition years ago after grandma passed away. My grandma loved to bake and is fondly known for all of the goodies she used to make. We loved her mocha bars and have yet to find a recipe that lives up to hers, hers wasn't written down, she cooked from memory as many ...

Hallelujah: Glass Dish & Mug Rug NOT Fail from MMM Quilts

That's a great song written by Leonard Cohen.  My favourite rendition is by kd lang. Both great Canadians. :-) I may have uttered that phrase, or at least heard the choir sing it, a couple of times over the past few days. I showed you on Instagram this little dish I made from beach glass I've been collecting on the shore of Lake Erie at Seacliff Beach, close to my home.

It looks so pretty in the sunshine! It really is that pretty.

I am fascinated by beach glass, but until rediscovering this beach this summer, I had not ...

"Winter Games" Blog Hop from MMM Quilts

I was super-excited to get to work with Amanda Murphy's fabric line "Meadow Dance" last month (heard in her newsletter today that it is sold out and being reprinted!) and then... to get to work with her next line, 'Winter Games' in my new favourite Christmas colours?  Over the moon!


Isn't that such a perfect winter print? There was no question that that was one I'd pick for using in my mug rug. Mittens with strings, how I always wanted a pair, thought it was so cool that you could just let them dangle, and even toques ...

Celebrating Canada's 150th Birthday! from Thread Head

In honour of Canada's 150th Birthday this year I designed a mug rug pattern to share.


The finished piece is about 9"x14". It uses appliqué and piecing techniques.

I think what really makes this mug rug is the Delectable Mountain quilt blocks used on the sides - they are similar to Maple Leaves on their own.

I used Bali/batik fabric in red and an off-white print (white would be great, but as it is a mug rug I knew stains would happen and this fabric already looked like coffee stains). I am sure two fat quarters would be ...

Mug Rug Finalizado from Artes de Paula Louceiro




Pra quem não conhece, mug rug ou tapete de caneca é algo bem legal pra se ter em casa.
Ele é algo que fica entre o tamanho de um coaster (porta-copos) e um jogo americano e por isso é super prático.

A idéia é que além da caneca com seu chazinho ou café, você também pode colocar ao lado algumas guloseimas. Bolachinhas, lanchinho, qualquer coisa.


 É ideal pra você deixar ao lado de seu computador enquanto trabalha, se atualiza ou se diverte nas redes sociais.

Aliás é uma peça coringa, que você pode levar pro sofá enquanto assiste sua série ...
