Mug Rug Exchange

Over at the FatCat Patterns Yahoo Group we are planning a Mug Rug Exchange. You are welcome to join the group and play along. Here is a copy of the exchange guidelines.

FatCat Patterns – Mug Rug Exchange
Mailing due date – February 16, 2015.
Envelopes must be postmarked by this date.
I will swap the mug rugs and mail them back out no later than February 20, 2015.
This is a 1 for 1 exchange.
You may make 1-3 mug rugs.
You will need to include a return envelope of the same size with your return address already written on it, and affix the same amount of postage.
Include a note to be sent along with each mug rug introducing yourself to your exchange friend.

Example – I make 1 mug rug and put it in a 9x5 mailer, the postage is 1.75. I include a separate mailer with my address written in the “To” area, and 1.75 worth of US postage attached. I include a note for my exchange friend.

What is a Mug Rug?
They are small quilted mini placemats just big enough to hold a cup and a cookie on your desk J
9 x 6 inches is about the largest you want one to be. They can be made in any shape, circle, hex, square or rectangle. They can be applique or pieced. They can include embroidery and embellishments. You can pretty much let your imagination run wild!

Mail your envelopes to:
Sindy Rodenmayer
1341 Kynn Drive
Garland Texas 75041

International Friends may play along too! You will need to mail sooner to assure they get here in time. Instead of postage include an extra Mug Rug. I will take care of the return postage.

Sounds like fun, Sindy. I'll be settled into my winter digs by then and might possibly be able to participate (if I remember). I'm coming to TX, by the way, to escape the winter's cold. Hope we have warmer weather than LAST winter!!
