I am hoping they would me at least 4"x8" so there is room for a cookie and big enough to put on the wall if I so choose. I like 5"x 10". More cookies!!!

I've just measured one of my mugs and it is about 3.5" across, so I would think that 4" square would be the smallest size. That said Wendy's mug rug is definitely larger [url]forum/this-and-that-quilting-related/6001-what-will-you-finish-first-in-2013[/url] - maybe 5" x 10" (to include space for cake?)

Now to go and check out Margo's link....

Rosemary, I want to swap with you. I have a AAQI that Rita made with one of Maureen's reels. I would like to collect things made by the "lounge lizards". I want you all in my sewing room. What's the deal here? Do I tell you how many I am willing to make?

Okay Lois,(talking to myself) read the whole thing. Do it yourself style? Umm... Make it up as you go... Sounds good!

I am willing to make 4 for starters and since Rosemary has something in mind for me I will jump at that and I will figure out something for her. End of May is fine with me for a deadline on Rosemary's. Now I am down to 3. I am hoping for a chicken rug, Wendy, which would put me down to 2. That is if Wendy will trust me to come up with something for her.

What are the usual dimensions of a mug rug?

I am open to offers for mug rug swaps. I would prefer to swap with any of the regular 'lounge lizards' that I frequently chat with here on the forum, but this is not exclusive. I will have to limit how many swaps I accept that will need posting in April, but will be open to further offers/swaps for posting after that.

ps. Lois, if you want a swap, I know exactly what I would like to make for you! For anybody else I will need to put my thinking cap on....

Ok - over on [url]forum/this-and-that-quilting-related/6001-what-will-you-finish-first-in-2013[/url], there has been lots of interest in holding a mug rug swap, but nobody is putting their hand up to run it :roll: The feedback seems to me that there is interest in some people having/doing multiple swaps and also there are some people that would like to be able to pick and chose who they swap with if possible.

Therefore I've opened this thread for a do-it-yourself Mug Rug Swap. The Basic Guidelines are

1) Post on here that you are open to swaps
2) Add any names you would particularly like to swap with (and no Wendy, I don't recommend that you list every member of TQS - at least not to start with :P )
3) Indicate if you would swap with any offeree's (possibly up to a set number - if you do this be sure to post when you have enough mug rugs!)
4) To make/confirm an offer, either post on this thread and/or send an email to the person concerned (use the small envelope box under the person's profile name on their post. If you want to add any specifications ie size, colour, theme this is the time to do so, otherwise just put sender's choice.
5) You might want to agree a posting date - or we say that any agreements in one month have to be posted by the end of the following month - ie if you confirm a swap in March you must ensure that it is posted by the end of April - unless you can post a really good story of why life got in the way. Fire, flood and the 'Dog ate my homework' (provided it is told in a humourous fashion) will be acceptable (Wendy is permitted to substitute 'chicken' for 'dog')

(having said that I might be needing an extension because from now until the end of April is going to be very busy for me, with organising an 11th birthday party and teaching a whole day embroidery class, which still needs lots of preparation sorting out)

6) Don't forget to exchange snail mail addresses via e-mail (or you won't receive anything :roll: :wink: )


Apart from this I suggest that we just make it up as we go along - you know same a usual 8) :lol:

7) Since in 2-3 days a lot of people have (nearly) overcommitted themselves, but would like to come back for more later, it has been suggested that people restrain themselves to a maximum of 4 mug rugs per round. Once you have them done, come back and see if you can swap some more.

It is mayhem in this thread! good fun, but mayhem :D
