New Finish

I participated in the Mug Mat Swap at Brynwood Needleworks.  I have never made a Mug Mat before - I had some trouble with the binding -  it was my first attempt so I guess that would be expected.  In addition to my Mat I sent my partner a pin cushion & my little wallet from a previous post.
Here is a photo of my Mug Mat:
The cross stitch pattern comes from Manka Blogja
I think it turned out pretty good for a first try :)
Have a great weekend
Hugs,
