A Day in the Life of Me..... told through Mug Rugs!!!!

It's raining................................




Raining mug rugs that is!

I decided to create mug rugs for every part of a typical Saturday in honor of today's April Showers blog hop!

7 am: Barely awake, first task is a cup of tea and a quick peek at the weather for the day.  (My DH is a meteorologist so he drew me up an accurate weather map for a lovely spring day in NC.  Sorry Seattle about all the rain.)




9 am: Steal some time at my machine, fueled by jelly beans.




Noon-ish: Lunch with my teenager daughter.




4 pm: Afternoon snack on the back porch, enjoying the sunshine and imagining flowers in the garden



9 pm: Who doesn't love a great episode of Dr Who?  Just take your glass of wine with you as you duck behind the couch to miss the scary bits.  




11 pm: Time for sleep and counting sheep .......



These were a lot of fun to put together!




Now pour that cup of tea, put your umbrella by your side and go visit all the bloggers I am lucky enough to share today with


MONDAY, APRIL 8:

  3. Thanks for the fun post. I love the raining mug rugs on the umbrella photo. All your mug rugs are sew cute. I think I like the sheep one the most. Maybe because it is time for me to go count some sheep myself. I am happy that I stayed up late enough to count a few mug rugs with you tonight, though. Now I shall dream of mug rugs and when I wake up I will enjoy the rest of the day's hop. Sweet quilty dreams ... :) Pat
