Pinky String Mug Rug

Pinky String Mug RugI worked with lots of pink scraps this month and here is my newest little mug rug. I pieced little strings together and then added a little applique flower to it.Pinky String Mug Rug

 I also dug into my scraps of batiks to use some pinks and a few reds to make a couple blocks that I will use for a project that I am doing for the Hugs & Kisses blog hop, my day will be February 12th.

Today I get to go to Chuck E. Cheese for pizza and my granddaughter’s 6th birthday…..I don’t think this is going to be a quiet day……

Yesterday my friend Mary stopped by and we had fun looking at things in my quilt room and I showed her how to use the AccuQuilt Go Baby and the Sizzix Big Shot, she couldn’t believe how easy and fun it was to use them. She works a lot with felted wool applique and also makes rag rugs with cotton strips which she is going to teach me how to do.

  8. Love the little pink mug rug – may have to start making a few as I don't like to put out full-size placemats when all I'm having is my coffee! Cute, cute, cute!

    Thanks for the block printout. I have been looking for a block for my "Sew Red for Women". There was one block I just didn't like at all, and I needed a 12-inch substitute. This is just perfect! I can use all the reds/pinks I have used in the other blocks. Once again, great ideas……..have a great weekend!

  11. What a good sport you are for braving an afternoon at Chuck-E-Cheese. It does make you want to go and hide for a while in a quiet room. Love your pink mug rug — and you even found the perfect mug to use with it. Looks like a productive pink month for you. Thanks for linking in.

    Pretty mug rug. Love all your pink projects!

  13. Love how nicely the reds and pinks play together. Stunning mug rug! I hope you will post some pictures of your future rag rugs. I have some ugly old fabrics that I'll never use in quilts. But I think they would look awesome in a rag rug at my kitchen sink.
    Have a good time at the birthday party.

  14. What a cute mug rug! Your pillow is sweet too.

  15. Great pink projects!

  16. Love that pink mug mat, girl. 🙂 As well as the pillow. Have a blast at the birthday party. 🙂

    Looking at all of your sweet projects, I have come to the conclusion that my stash is sorely lacking in pinks! 🙂 That mug rug is just too cute – your applique just the perfect finishing touch!
