I would have liked to post on Monday of this week, but tomorrow is a local holiday so I want to improve my mug rug if I can...I'm not quite happy with the end product!! So, posting on Thursday morning, which is the 12th, I reckon it will arrive in time...I hope!

Yes the idea is to post (if you are in the UK, posting to the UK)  2, 3 or 4 days before the 23rd ... If you are posting abroad however, look up the estimated delivery dates and post as you think fit .... its not an exact science!

But we would like them to arrive and be opened around the same time ish ... I know that can be difficult as life/holidays can get in the way but hey ho!

When you receive your Mug Rug please do post a pic to say thank you to your Gifter and give us a peek.

I will of course be compiling The Big TSP Autumn Equinox Mug Rug Swap Album to showcase all your fabulous makes!

I will post mine later on.  I must say I have really enjoyed doing this, it was just a simple design but I like it and hope my recipient does  :ninja:  I have never made a mug rug before, and plan to make more as gifts.  Thanks @Iminei for suggesting this  :) :vintage:

@wrenkins    Try This ...

And for an alternative with the lasso, try a big eye easy threading needle where the threads slip into the eye through a tiny slit.

Posted mine today.....I thought it was a straight swap, I’ve put nothing in with mine so they won’t know who it’s from  :o
But look what the postman brought today ...
Thank you @Sakar it’s lovely......and so is the chocolate!

Yes, that would be optimum but Sakar did say she was off on holiday and considering a parcel I posted to her 2 and a bit weeks ago still hasnt reached her, she posted early.

I am hoping that MOST of the packages will arrive in the week of the 23rd.

(I think next time I may only release the addresses a day or so before posting should start.)

So post in time for the parcel to reach your giftee around the 23rd September Please ....

Obvs if you are posting further afield you will have to use your judgement.

Im going to be wrapping mine and getting it ready for posting mid to end next week.

Hopefully you are not too disappointed  ;)
