The Buddette Mug Rug Swap 2012

I hope you have all had a wonderful Easter week.   Our clocks here in the UK sprung forward just after midnight on Saturday and I’m hoping the weather follows suit and Spring arrives.  Meanwhile today is lovely and sunny but oh so cold for the time of year.    The daffodils are blooming so they must think it’s spring, they are such a cheerful sight.
Now last year, around about this time, a small group of online quilting friends, The Buddettes as we call ourselves, agreed to do a mug rug swap for Christmas instead of other gifts.   Although we had months most of us typically left it to the last minute didn’t we, lol, any how all have swapped now and received so I can now show you the results.
First up, the beautiful mug rugs that were made for me.
