Been working on gifts for the neighbors - each will get a mug rug (San Francisco Stitch Co.) a vanilla jar candle and a tin of home baked goodies. I have 4 more mats to make... Do you think that will be enough?

These will make a fabulous gift! I love the stitchouts! I have had people buy my mug rugs just for the purpose you describe...a candle or coffee cup and some cookies gift. Your neighbors must be special.

I think each item itself, would be a nice neighborly gift, but combined is extremely nice! Over the top! I love the tone on tone mats and the design is awesome. The shape of the mat makes it look like pages of an open book. My daughter plays the fiddle/violin... need I say again how much I like these?-lol-I'd love to have you as my neighbor!

The San Fran mug rugs you have here are not real real quick (as opposed to the 15 min minute mats) and homemade goodies take $$ and lots of time if you made a variety. There is the tin to put them in...sooo my comment is they are some very very lucky neighbors!

Thanks so much! Yep, these certainly aren't the "minute mat" variety - they used 3 bobbins each.... I wish everyone acknowledged the amount of time, effort and cost involved in hand made stuff like you do.

Thanks, Chris! You have much more experience at pleasing others with gifts than I do, so I will now let out a sigh of relief. LOL

I think the idea is lovely, like the designs and more is less sometimes. They should appreciate all you items and the wonderful efforts you've gone to. :~)

Thanks. I figured since I'm not sure of their decor likes and how they "do" the holidays, I figured tone on tone would be the best bet.
