I've been wanting to make one of these Mug Rugs for a while now!
A few days ago I said ok, lets just whip one up and see how long it takes.
Thirty minutes later I said "ta-da" and husband goes "What's this mug rug thing you keep going on about?"
So I tried to explain it as a big coaster that holds a coffee cup AND toast... a soft washable plate... a mini quilt you use as cup holder AND napkin combined.
I don't think he gets it, and that's fine. He's a guy. Linux, he gets. Mug rugs, not so much.
