There are never a boring month at NNC!
Do you know why? Because there are always some swaps (exchanges) going on! :)
Earlier this year I signed up for the secret mug rug swap.
I had no idea who was my secret swap partner, I couldn't even guess!
I've signed up for the 'block swap' too (that will be another post soon) and when Janet in Malaysia informed me the blocks were sent, I didn't dream of that included in the parcel was the mug rug too! :)
Here's the mug rug from Janet! As you can see, it is 'written' CAFE in the middle - very cute, Janet!
Together with the mug rug and as the requirement (coffee or tea bags), there are two bags of white coffee from IPOH in Malaysia! Ever since I became a member of NNC, I've been dying to taste the white coffee - coffee lover as I am - but I have been too shy asking somebody to send me a sample! Now I've got it! But I still haven't tasted it - LOL! :) I couldn't help it but take photos of the coffee bags, because I love the way the they look!
Janet, be sure I'll find the right day and right moment to enjoy the cuppa!
Thank you so very much!
My secret swap partner was Paul in Malaysia, and here's the mug rug I made for him. I tried to make it a bit 'manly', hope I succeeded! :)
I decided to make a matching tea tote for the tea bags...
... and I included two small pieces of fabric in the colors I know Paul loves! :)
Read about the mug rug swap on Paul's blog here.
And not to forget; a huge thank you to 'headmistress' MW for hosting the swap!
Thank you MW! Lots of fun!
