See, it started out as an idea for a pillow - a birthday present for my friend, TabbieG - that would match the quilt I made for her birthday a year ago. But I didn't have enough scraps to make a full size duplicate block. So, I halved all the measurements and created this little mini block. Added a bit of white to extend the rug and added this cute stackable flower button. I even embroidered using the pattern right on the white fabric. The only problem beyond this was I couldn't find a cute purple mug to complement it.
So, since I knew TabbieG wouldn't mind and we all need a sweet treat sometimes, I grabbed a glass and my mug rug quickly became a Margarita Mat !!
In fact, we spent last friday night watching chik fliks and indulging in a couple of lip smacking margaritas!
Here's a few more shots...pics, I mean ; )
What, 3 o'clock? No worries...it's 5 o'clock somewhere!
