Sitting here today with my coffee and lamenting over the state we live in now. I bought a new flavor of coffee creamer, Vanilla Nut Rum, and yes, it is absolutely as great as it sounds. But trying to break into the sealed foil under the top, proved to be quite the challenge. It got me remembering the days prior to that goof ball, who tried to poison us all with something in Tylenol caplets. Remember that? If I am thinking correctly that was the beginning of the end of our innocence and many of our abilities to open bottles of anything. Today you have to arm yourself with knives, scissors and hands of steel (not buns) just to get things open, so you "can" use them. Does this seem really crazy to anyone but me. What the heck has happened to our society??
Ok, I will get off my soap box now. I wish this Vanilla Nut Rum had a little of the "real" rum in it, that might make me a little more mellow this morning! :-)
What this post was all about before my crazy foil incident, was this new rage called mug rugs. These little treasures are so much fun to make. It opens your mind to new designs, and let you finish them quickly. Even the busiest of people can manage to finish up a 6" x 10" quilt in a sitting.
This has to be one of my favorite dollar store finds. The sentiment on the cup "OHHHH" so explains my situation this time of my life. It's a sad thing, but it happens to most of us! :-)
If you have younger children or grandchildren, don't leave them out. You can find the cutest little cups, even sippy cups and make them special "Milk Mats". What a great way to share some special time with a loved one.
And last but not least, Santa will be riding thru next week, and we all leave milk and cookies out for him don't we????? Well, have a special little mat for him this season too...
I love striped bindings, but I am seeing a trend here. Guess I need to go out and do some fabric shopping!
