Xmas Runner and Mug Rugs

I have been happy sewing this week-- managing to finish several items that will go into my Xmas stash! When I have finished a project I put all fabric left over blocks or part blocks into a plastic bag-- They dont see the light of day for some time--one usually has had enough of THAT fabric by the time the project is finished---
This week was take out the basket with Christmas fabric as well as plastic bags of----'Going thru these bags brings back memories of articles made many moons ago-- and the fabrics are --new again-  One such piece was just the right size for a smalltable runner just had to add the end pieces quilt it and bind it -- had a few scraps left over so made the mug Rugs to match.

Then out came another plastic bag -- nice cream and greens odd windmill blocks  that needed to be used and a good sized peice of floral -- red and cream Pointsetters -I see more Mug Rugs for my Christmas stash
These Mug Rugs can be used either side which side do you like?
Thanks again for looking at my Blog.
