A Rug for Timbits

In my quilting world, mug rugs are the new latest craze.  I think I might be in love.  There’s just something about actually knowing I can complete a quilt in short order that appeals to my I-have-to-start-something-new mentality.

I have been the lucky recipient of two fabulous mug rugs from dear quilting friends.  They both make me smile as they remind me of my friends.  I’m thinking about decorating the entire motorhome with mug rugs.  Feel free to make one for me.  Wait.  This was supposed to be about me making things and actually finishing them in my lifetime.  Hmm.  Whatever.

Seems it was only a matter of time before mug rugs branched out.  And my dear friend, Cathi of Quilt Obsession fame, decided to make me a Timbits Rug.  Yep.  A rug just for Timbits.

This is how Cathi intended for it to be used.  And you can see a great pic that she posted on her blog with 7 little Timbits on it just like I showed you.  And read all about how this came to be.

But I think it’s better like this.  Just one little Timbit so I can see the beautiful 7 sisters stars. (And I’m trying to limit my intake of Timbits so I don’t weigh 300 pounds when I return to Texas.)

Or maybe it works even better like this?  So it doesn’t get all sticky from the sugary Timbits?  Then we might call it a coaster.  I think true mug rugs were meant to hold your mug with a cookie alongside.  Or maybe 10 Timbits.  Listen to me.  Like I’m an authority on mug rugs or something.

How about this?  Timbits on a plate with the mug on the Timbits Rug.

And didn’t you just need to see those Timbits up close and personal?  Nobody but Tim Horton’s would actually go to the trouble of putting jelly inside their famous donut holes!

Or maybe the Timbits rug needs to just be nearby to enjoy while eating the Timbits and drinking the Tim Horton’s coffee?

I love my Timbits Rug from my friend Cathi.  It makes me happy just to see it every day.  And be reminded of our friendship.  Formed completely on the internet!  And all because of Inklingo and Dear Hubby’s job in Canada.

And I’m sure you noticed that I’m not being very successful about that whole limiting my Timbit intake thing.

On another note, we’ve been having a fair amount of rain here in Mirabel, Canada.  The other day it was raining and the sun came out, shining brightly.  So I went outside in the rain to look.

And discovered this beautiful rainbow right over the motorhome!

    Wow I really have to be careful when I read your blog…. must be sure to have eaten a meal first. I’m really craving donut holes right now 🙂 Looks like you have a beautiful place there with lots of trees. Hope you get some more sunshine!
    Hugs, Kaye – light rain and 72 degrees at 8:30 am 🙂

    Oh, my goodness!!!! Now I won’t be satisfied until I get to Dunkin’ Donuts to buy a “few” holes. I might take a picture of the Timbits with me so I can try to match what’s on your plate.

    I am not much of a sweet person but after reading your blog I will have to have some timbits. And a timbit rug. If you fill up the home with mug rugs you might go over the weight limit and you have to cross THE BORDER to come home.

    Oh Barb. You always bring us smiles :-). But what the heck is a Timbit and where do you get them? They look naughtily (is that a word?) yummy

  7. I think the Timbit rug looks best with just the remaining crumbs left on it! Ah sweet memories . . . . and room for more Timbits!

    I actually was going to try to make a few for you that have cats on them, but before I knew it you were already on the road!
