Done and delivered

Now that these have safely arrived, I can show you what I have finished.

This is a mug rug in the middle of being made. It shows the colours a bit truer than...

this photo.

Mug rug number 2.

I'm linking up with The Needle and Thread Network. Pop on over and take a look at what other bloggers are making.

Beautiful mug rugs - but far too nice to use! I know what would happen if I had one....for sure I'd slop my coffee on it and get it all stained.

Love the tulips! And like the previous comment -- mug rugs for me tend to end up quite messy! My cousin tho came to the rescue and made one that she said I could mess up and that it would be quite okay!

Wow, what a dramatic change in the colors from the first photo to the second! I've never seen the reds change like that. But anyway, I love the project! Great design, great colours. Two nice finishes!

Half American, half Canadian, lol.

Beautiful mug rugs but I wouldn't be letting my hand applique have coffee cups sitting on them.

Great mug rugs! I think I'd need to shop and find a pretty mug to go with them:)

Those are lovely, Dolores!!!

Beautiful mug rugs! I love how the tulips grow out of their frame. I wouldn't worry about using them; all the pretty mug rugs I have received have been washed if stained, and look like new again.

Both very nice mugrugs ! Great job :-)

I disagree with the idea that they are too pretty to use. I think that using beautiful things honours the maker and the art, and these deserve to be honoured.

Fantastic mug rugs, and so nice that you showed a picture before the binding, that shows how much things change when finished.
