Or the rug is big enough for a bowl of "Beef Barley Mushroom" soup. Why am I so keen and ambitious this morning? Because The City of Brockville decided to start clearing the snow banks in my neighbourhood at 0430 this morning. So with lights flashing throughout the house, I got up, went for a run and then came home, read the paper with a coffee in hand and then started cooking/baking. Does the kitchen ever smell nice! There is nothing like a hot bowl of homemade soup on a cold Wintery Canadian Day in the City of Brockville during the month of February. I will be mailing my "Mug Rugs" to someone located in the Northern Hemisphere. Shhhh!! It's a secret swap!

A few weeks ago, I received an email inviting me to participate in a "Mug Rug Swap". Glad that the email included "a tutorial" since I really wasn't too sure what a mug rug was and it's purpose. Yes, I know I have been out of the loop for a while but everyday is a school day.
For the swap, you had to make 2 rugs (I guess "his n' hers" or for "you and a friend" that just happen to drop by for coffee/tea) measuring 10" x 6". How hard could that be! And I have lots of fabric to pass around.
