"and it shall be a token or sign of a covenant or solemn pledge between Me and the earth. Genesis 9:13.
I always think of rainbows as God's promise to us to never send another flood. But it also reminds me that God is faithful and He keeps ALL His promises. The fact that I even wanted to make this mug rug for my neighbor is a testament to God's work in my life. Since the day we moved into our house 11 years ago she made our lives very difficult. I really struggled with hating her (just being real here..) My husband would continually tell me I needed to forgive her. I knew that, but it was hard.... I slowly began praying for her. It wasn't until our dog died 4 years ago that something began to change. We are now friends. That is a miracle.
Well, my neighbor had to put her dog down a few weeks ago. I know how painful that is. I really wanted to do something to bless her and to remember her dog Omar. So I came up with this Rainbow Bridge Mug Rug.
I used this tutorial to print the Rainbow Bridge poem onto the backing fabric. It took a couple of tries to finally get it but I think it turned out great. I also want to say thanks to my fellow mug rug friend Stephanie at Spontaneousthreads, who really helped me with those curves!
