April Showers Mug Rug Blog Hop and a Giveaway!

Welcome to my stop on the April Showers Mug Rug Blog Hop!  I'm really pleased to be a part of this hop hosted by Mdm Samm from Sew We Quilt with Erin at Sew at Home Mummy as our cheerleader.



This is a monster hop - we'll get be looking at super awesome mug rugs for 11 days!!  Here's the list of today's hoppers:

Erin @ Sew at Home Mummy
 Patty @ A Stitch in Time
Jenny @ Squawk That
Stacey @ The Tilted Quilt (you're here!)
Daryl @ Patchouli Moon Studio
Lisa @ In The Boon Docks
Julie @ Jolie Maxtin: the project girl
Beluah @ Sowing Stitches
Karen @ Bungalow Bay Quilts
DeAnna @ Georgia Girl Quilter


Don't forget to scroll down to the end of this post for the list of all hoppers and a little giveaway goodness.


Today, I've decided to give you my take on a little more grownup mug rug... like, um, a cocktail mug!

I wondered how I could link up one of my favorite pastimes with our theme for the hop and suddenly the phrase, "When it rains, I pour!" came to mind.  




From there,  I went to my favorite embroidery site, Urban Threads and found two perfect designs for this project, the umbrella and the martini glass :)





We have had lots of rain here over the last week or so, I think that calls for a glass of wine, or maybe even a martini... Don't you?

I used a piping technique I learned in a Piping Hot Binding class from the fabulous Susan Cleveland to make the piping for a little extra punch.  She has a great tool to help with making perfect piping every time! She has a couple of YouTube videos that show her technique, check her out.



And now for some giveaway fun ~ it will be a mystery fabric giveaway from my stash.  I'm going to put together a fun little care package of fabric for one winner. The giveaway will be open through the entire hop, so don't forget to enter for a chance to win!


a Rafflecopter giveaway


Thanks so much for stopping by today, please be a cheerleader for the other hoppers today and for the rest of the hop :)

  97. Wonderful mug rug. I like the way you think, and the piping is extra hot.

    I like to pour a cup of hot tea when it rains. Boring, I know. I usually drink iced tea, so having it hot is way crazy (can you sense the sarcasm?).

    ReplyDelete
  98. What a nice mug rug idea! Very creative and inspiring for me, the beginner. Perfect size for it's purpose. You did a lovely job of it!

    What I pour depends on whether it is a cold rain or a warm rain. Cold rain = cup of hot black tea; warm rain = glass of blush wine.
