Giveaway Day!

Welcome, welcome to everyone who's visiting as part of Sew, Mama, Sew's May Giveaway Day!

Giveaway Day - May 2011

Up for grabs today is your very own mug rug.  Don't know what a mug rug is?  By definition, it's a quilted piece of artwork larger than a standard coaster and smaller than a placemat, used as a resting place for a beverage and a snack.  But often used for many other things. ;)  (I'll be honest.  I have one next to my computer that I use as intended.  And one next to my sewing machine as a resting place for my scissors so I always know where they are.)

This mug rug will be made JUST FOR YOU, based off of a short list of likes.

What do you have to do to enter?  Easy-peasy.  Just post here on the blog with a few things that tickle your fancy.  "I love orange and hexies and want to use the mug rug as a resting place for my cat's food bowl."  (I'd be sure to add a waterproof liner!)  Or, maybe "Polka dots make me shout with joy and I really like anything round.  But I don't care much for blue."  Or even "Elephants are my favorite animals.  Ever.  And I kind of like stripes."  You get the picture.  Just make sure that I have some way of contacting you if you win.  Blog followers get a second entry, free of charge.  Just post again letting me know that you are.  (New blog followers welcome!)

Entries will be accepted from right now through May 25th (I'll close submissions in the wee hours of May 26th) and I'll get working on the mug rug as soon as the winner has been contacted and responded, so that it can go into the mail quickly.

Good luck and have fun with all of the giveaways!  (And be sure to check out my TWO giveaways at frog loves monkey!  You have lots and lots of chances to win there!)

  2. Hi Kiza! You know the types of things I love. ;) And I'm fairly sure I'd use it for my sewing area coffee/wine holder.

    This is really cute, thanks for the sweet giveaway!

  3. I love mug rugs! :) If I won this, though, I would gift the rug to my much younger sister who is about to embark on her first year in college. She loves zebras, photography/cameras and pink is her favorite color. She would use this at her "new" college desk as a place for her coffee and energy bar while studying all night.

  22. Well now isn't that a great offer?? :) I would love a mug rug, to be used as a mug rug on my bed side table. I love the combination of orange and aqua and I am totally into houses right now. LOL Not sure those two things would work together, but one or the other would be great!! :)

  23. My favorite color is orangy-red... I just painted a wall in my living room that color. Also love charcoal and black.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I've been coveting a mug rug forever (I don't quilt...yet). Greens matched with yellow and and hint of turquoise are the colors of my kitchen (where I would use my mug rug), and I like flowers/florals, birds, stripes, polka dots, and my apron has pears on it. Yikes, that sounds awfully picky! Thanks for the giveaway. scarletteandcinnamon(at)gmail(dot)com

  29. I love symmetry. Stripes, dots, lots of colors. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Thank you! I have no clue what I'm using it for but I'm going to college so white/pale is probably not a good choice! Purple is my favorite color. I love bright colors. Some neat color combos are purple/pink/chartreuse, purple/chartreuse/blue, purple/yellow/red, and purple/yellow/green. I am a girly girl so I love flowers and such. Bunnies, my childhood obsession, still have a special place in my heart. :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. What a great giveaway! I like greens, blues, yellows, orange and natural linen but not red and no pastels. I would use it on my craft table maybe for coffee and a snack or to place my rug hooking scissors and hook. Log cabin with various widths or a random type of patchwork would be cool.

  43. Thanks for defining what a mug rug is. I've seen the term bandied about but wasn't exactly sure why coasters were renamed mug rugs. Now I know. It's not a coaster, that's why!
    I love blue and white and green and Japan and Oregon. Hmmm, how would that translate into a mug rug?? A geisha hiking? Mt. Hood versus Mt. Fuji? The mind boggles...

Mine would be used during the little bit of kid free time I have in the evenings when everyone else is asleep. Snack time for mommy. I really like blue/green combinations or purples - especially lighter purples/lavender. I love stripes and polka dots and really like owls and birds.
