Just Like A White Wing Dove...

I've been invited to be a guest on Sweet Jeanette blog. I hope you'll visit Jeanette today and check out my tutorial to make your own "White Wing Dove" Mug Mat.

I've been seeing all kinds of beautiful mug mats on other blogs lately, so when Jeanette invited me to create something for her blog, I decided to create my own take on these quick and easy gifts. They only take about an hour to make, and are a great use for your scrap fabric and batting. I know I'll be making more to give!

I'm also sharing one of our easy family recipes with her (she does have a cooking blog, after all). My Instant Hot Cocoa Mix would be a perfect accompaniment to a mug mat for a friend or family member. Just the ticket for a last minute gift!

Only 5 days til Christmas! As you hurry about to complete your projects and shopping, please take a moment to remember the Reason for the Season.

Thank you to my beautiful friend, Ellen, for making the lovely Christmas centerpiece in the photo.


  1. Now I've got that song whirling through my head and it will be there for a while. .... :)

    A lovely little coaster and a great gift along with the hot chocolate mix.

    I wish I could sew ...

    wishing you and yours the blessings of the season. Tammy

  2. Hot Chocolate sounds yummy and that mug rug is a cutie. I will go for a visit and check out your guest post. Merry Christmas to you. I have the song stuck in my head too, but that is okay, I love it.....He sends his precious Love.

  3. Oh Dee, I love this idea!!! Mug rug indeed....what a great teacher's gift or for a person who has everything, I can think of lots of ways to give it out, especially with the mug of hot chocolate!!!!

  4. The dove Mug Mat is so sweet. And nothing better than a big cup of cocoa! Hoep you & Fez are well. And how about Kes? I just posted a new photo of Elle. Hope you'll stop by to see her. And if I don't talk to you before Saturday... Merry Christmas my sweet friend.

  5. Now, you have me singing the Fleetwood Mac song! LOL I just love your Dove mat. I project that's quick and easy and these would definitely fill the bill.

    Have a wonderful Christmas!

  6. Uggghhh!!! You had to do it didn't you??? Now I'm singing that song and I can't stop!!!!! I can even see Stevie Nicks in the video!!!!You know I have that problem! hee,hee,hee.
    Totally cool mug rug.
    You still suck for putting that song in my head. ;)

  8. Your mug rug is adorable and a wonderful idea for a teacher's gift for the boys this next year. Their mom made wooden Christmas Ornaments this year. I loved all of your quilts from the previous post. Have a wonderful weekend. Merry Christmas from your Missouri Friend.
