Scrappy Mug Rug Swap

I got in under the wire for the Scrappy Mug Rug Swap happening on Flickr and I couldn't be happier.

I know it's not like I don't have a list of WIPs/WIMMs a mile long and a September deadline for completing my Simple Sampler. But have you seen some of the inspiration mosaics? Seriously - my little mugs NEED rugs.

My Mugs

This is what I said in my entry email about likes and dislikes:

I tend to be drawn to pieces that include birds and/or trees and/or circles, but pretty much anything goes for me. Wonky or not, pieced and/or appliqué, hand or machine quilted – it’s all good for me. Basically, it’s dealer’s choice.

I love whimsy (including gnomes and toadstools), but I am not a big fan of anything too cartoony or overly juvenile. Also not a big fan of angels.

I’d like something to complement either of my mugs, but even that’s not necessary if those colours don’t speak to you.

This is my inspiration mosaic (click to see it bigger, and to see the photo credits):

  1. Fun! This swap is going to be a hoot.

  2. Great to see a Vancouver contingent going strong in this swap


I *love* comments, and I try to respond to every one by email (but I can't if you're a no-reply blogger!). So go on, don't be shy - leave one to let me know you've stopped by!
