Mug Rug for a Friend

mug rug for a friendI’ve been busy this week working on a mug rug for a friend. I got to know my friend, Cecile, last winter while Tim and I were in the Yukon. She and her husband loved their tea, and I have fond memories of sharing many a cup with them. Earl Grey tea with honey is their favourite.

 Polar Bears of the Yukon are located much further North from where Cecile and Charlie live. I won’t go into Polar Bear facts today, but if you would like to learn a little more about the  Polar Bear I did a post two years ago that you can read here. It also contains Polar Bear décor ideas for Christmas if you are thinking that far ahead. I know I am!

We received snow a couple of days ago. This is possibly why I’m thinking about Christmas decorating! I don’t really like to start decorating until the first of December. It’s a habit leftover from my many years of living in the states where Thanksgiving isn’t until the last week of November.


I hope you will pray for my friends, Charlie and Cecile. Cecile wrote to let me know that Charlie has cancer and has already begun treatments. Charlie is 71 but he is still working. He has contracts with U-Haul and Lynden Truck Lines to change tires whenever there are any breakdowns along the Alaskan Highway. It didn’t matter if it was -40 or 4am in the morning, when Charlie got a call he went out to take care of business. I could write a whole book about Charlie’s life (if he would let me), but that’s for another day….

Exciting news! It is time for my Christmas Mug Rug Swap. I participated a couple of years ago in a Christmas apron swap and had so much fun with it I decided it was time to sponsor a swap of my own.

 A Christmas Mug Rug Swap gives us an opportunity to tap into our creative juices, but best of all it gives us an opportunity to get to know new bloggers from all over the country and the world. Jann, my Christmas apron swap partner from years ago is still my blogging buddy today.
