Hi All!

I'm happy to announce that I am Mdm Samm's newest cheerleader, and I will be hosting an "April Showers: Mug Rug" themed hop starting April 8 - 16, 2013!

.... 100 hoppers will be accepted, with up to 15 non-bloggers in the mix....

...first come, first serve!....

...hop runs April 8 - 16, no weekends...

...the theme is "April Showers" - anything that "April" inspires in you...in mug rug form...
- quilt it
- sew it
- applique it
- embroider it
... anything goes!

What's a mug rug, you ask?

A mini quilt, smaller than a placemat but larger than a coaster... just large enough for your favorite beverage and a little treat beside...

RULES/GUIDELINES (because there must always be some! tee hee)

  6. Make sure to be a cheerleader for all of those in the hop - share the comment love!
  7. Please add the hop button (the umbrella image) to your blogs for the hop. If you don't, you'll be discreetly eliminated from the current hop-along list :) If you're not sure how to add the buttons, please, ask me! I'll walk you through it.
