A Mug Rug For Me!

Isn't this cool?! It's a "mug rug". The mug is mine - made by my Auntie Ruth and given as part of a set to Kevin and me for a wedding gift. I placed it to show both size and purpose. I've been wanting to make some mug rugs - some small projects just to get me used to using my sewing machine. They're like mini-quilts so they would be good test pieces. On one of the quilting blogs I follow - Mare's Nest - a mug rug was being given away to a reader and then Mary, the blogger, decided to give everyone a mug rug! How generous! I'm going to make something and send it back to her. It only seems fair. She's a better quilter than me so I'll send her something that she's less likely to make on her own.

When I opened the package and found this mug rug, I was very surprised! I think Mary must have designed it specifically for me since bananas and blueberries (medicine in fruit form) are what I eat almost every day. Amazing! I LOVE IT!!

This was the bright spot in what has been an otherwise yucky day. I didn't sleep very well and my stomach was a little wonky. I think it's just a little anxiety. When someone tells you to get some part of you biopsied, let me tell you, if you don't already know, you want that thing biopsied NOW! Having to wait to get appointments is like being told to just sit still and don't move while a tarantula crawls up your arm. Heebie jeebies. Creepy crawlies. I see my family doctor tomorrow and hopefully he'll have something more revealing to say about this little sore on my back.
