A Mug Rug Swap

Ok! I thought a mug rug swap would be a lovely idea.

Guidelines -

Finished mug rug should measure approx 10"x 7" - but don't stress if it is 9x6 or 10x6 or 9x7!
Mug rugs are to be made of 100% cotton, quilted and securely bound. There is no set design...make it as simple or as complicated as you like!

To take part please register as Attending on the Mug Rug swap Event - you need to register by 31st August.

To give us plenty of time and no pressure, the date for Mug Rug completion is 30th October. We will endeavour to send our rugs in the first week of November.

This will be a secret swap - you will know who you are making for, but not who is making for you. I will post a list of questions for everyone to answer so that we can give our swap partner a few clues re likes and dislikes.

Most of all this is meant to be fun!

How does this sound?? Feel free to suggest any changes or add anything I have left out!!
