A Cup of Cocoa?

I'm sure by now most of us have been sucked in by Pinterest...  I am grateful for Pinterest because during the days and weeks post-fall, when I wasn't up to much but trying to endure until time for the next dose of meds... scrolling through the pins kept me occupied and my mind off my troubles.  I also found a few ideas for Christmas gifts!

One "recipe" I thought was cool started with a mug, several brown FQs and a spool of white thread.

The FQs are rolled up around the spool of thread...

...and inserted in the mug!  Because there was nothing under the spool of thread, it "sunk"... so I removed it and folded down a corner of the inner FQ...

...and reinserted the spool of thread.    Cup of cocoa anyone?

I'm meeting a good friend tonight for dinner and this will be an early Christmas gift for her.

Ho, ho, ho!


  1. This is so cute, Freda. How clever--love it!

  2. I was planning on saying almost the exact same thing as Janet did. I hate to be redundant, but this is awesome! I haven't seen anything like it before. Thanks for sharing.

  3. What a clever idea, Freda. :o)

  4. how neat, and very appropriate for a quilty friend

  5. Ho Ho Ho!! back at you:) Have fun with your friend!

  6. She's going to love it! Have a great dinner.

  7. What a great idea, which girl doesn't want such a delicious cup of chocolat.
    I'don't visit Pinterest, I'm afraid that I'm going to live in front of my pc *LOL*

  8. I wonder how many times this idea is going to be duplicated this year? Love it.
