Hexy Mug Rug

I don't know if you're like me but wherever I go, my tea mug goes with me! Lately I have been spending a lot of time in the sewing room with nothing to set my mug on. Yes, I could use some of the fabric lying around there, but I don't think that's such a smart idea. 
 I've seen many cute patterns for mug rugs. At last I decided I wanted to try my hand with one. I've  been wanting to  make one using hexies.
 Let me just say that I am rusty on hexy making, because this time around the hexies did not turn out so well! I've made pieces for a quilt using hexies in the past, but that was eons ago. I have faith that with a little more practise I can perfect the art again. I sure hope so any way....

 This whole process got me to thinking that we should have a Christmas mug rug exchange. What do you think? Wouldn't that be fun? Would you consider participating? The mug rug doesn't need to be fancy. To me it is really all about the fun. I took part in a Christmas apron exchange a couple of years ago and I was able to get to know other bloggers through it. Many who are still blogging friends today.
Let me know what you think...

  9. Hi Kimberly, I have never made a mug rug, but would love to join in. Love the hexie one! I have to tell you that I have an unfinished quilt that has rows. They are all pretty much done, but one I need to finish has hexies. I need to get back to them! Also, I had just seen the light that you showed on their site and wanted to order them for our outdoor lights. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
