Happy Canadian Thanksgiving - Profitez bien le jour de l'Action de Grace

Canadian Maple Mug Rug Pattern

In celebration of Canada Day this October add this wonderful mug rug to your table.

One of the things I love about mug rugs is the ability to bring seasons and celebrations into the home for little more than a few small pieces of fabric.

At Patchsmith Palace we have already had our first batch of sweet pumpkin drop scones and there is plenty of pureed pumpkin in the freezer for my next batch of muffins.  At this rate I am going to need a bigger chair to accommodate my bigger behind.   I was going to say I could sit on the throne – but here in England the throne of a house is the toilet and that would never work – there is no electricity in the bathroom!  With my history of calamity that is most probably a very good thing.
Many, many people have downloaded my spinning pumpkin block that I created for the Glorious Autumn Block Party over at Quilting Gallery.  I made my block relatively plain so that people could use it to fit in with their colours and style.  It seems to have worked – it has been well received.

Gotta go – I am working on a new Christmas pattern.  Until next time ......


  1. I would call it:
    "Friendly Spid"

  2. Another mug rug to add to my addiction! lol
    I like the rectangle shaped patches a lot. And how your o pattern can be made with either handsewn or machine sewn embellishments!


  3. Both of these turkeys are so adorable! I love the fan-shaped feathers on the second clever!

  4. Your spider reminds me of a Slinky Spider with the way he is dropping down. Your mug rugs are so cute! Thanks for the opportunity to win one!!

  5. Super cute turkeys, I particularly like the one with lots of brightly coloured feathers.

  6. You are so busy with creating! Once again a beautiful mug rug. Your house mug rug is very pretty too!

  7. I loved their mat rugs, beautiful.
    I purchased almost all patterns.

  8. Very fun! Thanks for sharing!
