Mug Rug Content

I entered my first ever Mug Rug into a contest at Sew I Quilt blog.  Madamm Samm offered prized for 1st and 2nd. There was also a prize for the ugliest- you voted #3.

Voting was yesterday (Friday) and results will be announced later today.  When I went to place my votes, I checked first to see how my entry was doing.  At the time, I had many wonderful comments from before the voting started.  I had a #2 and a #3.   My DH was sitting nearby.  Here is how the conversation went.

Me:  "I got a vote for most ugly."
DH:  "That's horrible."
Me: "I don't care - you win fabric."
DH: "Well you better not vote for the most ugly."
Me: "You don't understand.  Some of these were designed to win most ugly."
DH: "Doesn't matter.  Don't do it."
Me: "You win F-A-B-R-I-C."

I voted and can't wait to see who won each category.  There are some beautiful ones out there - and I do feel better that my #3 choice was a #3 choice for others.

I went out and checked my entry this morning.  I ended up with a #1, #2 and a #3 and a number of really nice comments.   Oh, and the last comment from LeAnne;

"I'm so sorry! Yours doesn't need improvement at all! I voted number 3 because I though we were ranking in order. Yours is great. Just beautiful! 

I thought that was very sweet to come back and post that.  Can't wait to tell my DH!

This is the link to my entry.

PS  The mug pictured in the photo is my favorite one and used often.  When I filled it with tea this morning, it seems to have acquired a hairline crack from top to bottom.  The tea leaked all over the counter.  I hate when that happens.  I can hopefully re-purpose it to hold pens or quilting supplies but it won't be the same.  I'm glad it (and my mug rug) enjoyed some time together.

Now I need to find a new favorite mug and will have to make a mug rug to match!

Happy Stitching!
