Recently I sent some of my Little Sketchbooks off to different parts of the world. I was happy that people wanted to use them for their creative pursuits. [If you asked me for one and it hasn’t arrived, please let me know — it is either a problem with the post or my brain…] Imagine my delight when I received a package in return, from Mount Vernon, Washington.
It was a mug mat, made specially for me by Sue.
In her card Sue says that she made it with me in mind. I can tell that is true because not only has she selected flowers, but there are bird and feather patches!
She also writes
It’s meant to be large enough for a mug or cup and saucer and an edible treat to boot!
It is a perfect fit on the arm of my comfy red chair, and does fit a mug and the edible treat — a slice of cake that I made with my new mixer!
Sue has a delightful blog, From the Magpie’s Nest, where she blogs about her adventures with patchwork and other deliciously crafty things. Hop on over and say “Hello”.
Thank you Sue, for a thoughtful, and useful, gift. Enjoy using your pen and ink in the sketchbook.
