No Ring Blog Hop

I bet you’re wondering what the No Ring Blog Hop is all about, right? It’s about Mug Rugs … so that you don’t leave a ring on your furniture from your drinks! Now, I bet it makes sense!

Last week, on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, I worked at Essem Textiles. The lovely couple that own the store were having a traditional Indian wedding. They had previously married, but because of Covid, there was no celebration. So, with restrictions lifted, it was time to have the formal ceremony.

I usually take a water bottle with ice in it and it sweats and leaves RINGS where ever it is placed. I needed to make a mug rug and this fit the bill! It’s a free embroidery design from Kreative Kiwi. Kreative Kiwi has a LOT of free patterns and the directions are easy to follow. I added “Essem” to personalize it for the store.

The fabrics were from my scrap pile, I used Hobbs batting and the thread was an assortment of Robison-Anton, Aurifil and Madeira.

Here is the Schedule:

Monday, November 15th

Tuesday, November 16th

Wednesday, November 17th

Thursday, November 18th

One who sleeps under a quilt is covered by LOVE!

Happy Quilting!

  1. Hi Gail! What a cute mug rug. Not only is it a happy place for the Essem folks but the design is a happy place for many. I love Kreative Kiwi and their designs. I only have a small embroidery machine but I’m pulling it out for some gifts this season. Thanks for the inspiration. I love the fabrics and colors you chose. ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. It looks great! I almost thought it was a patch and I love patches! I always admire embroidery. I hope to get to start with my mother soon. She was gifted a machine from my late Aunt but we haven’t tried anything yet. Not even sure where to start! Thanks for sharing!

    • Thank you!
      If you haven’t started experimenting with the embroidery machine … my advice is to just START. Kreative Kiwi is a great place to start and the directions are pretty clear. Have fun! πŸ™‚
