Mug Rug Swap and winnings!

Beautiful mug rugs from Carla who lives in Venice, FL (same city as my Dad!)
 I participated in a mug rug swap hosted by Michele from the Quilting Gallery.  Carla sent me a great coffee mug along with two rugs.  The above rug is so cleverly made with coffee bean fabric in three different colors .    The other one, below, is so pretty.  It has dragonflies on it - (my sis, Diane, loves dragonflies, too).  And Carla used her favorite fabric, the yellow with little flowers!  I feel honored that she would do that, and used the last from her stash, too!
Here's a close-up, but the colors are not true.  They're much brighter and prettier in person.
 And the back:
 She did some fun stitching on it.  I wonder what kind of sewing machine she has.  Thank you so much, Carla!  I love them both, and the coffee mug, too!
 And I won a giveaway:  Yippee!  From Sue Naughton  It was her first giveaway, and I am the lucky one who won!  I love black and white fabrics, and the yellow flower-type fabric is wonderful!   Thank you, Sue!  I will definitely be finding a great use for them soon!  And she sent me some note cards with my initial on them.  I frequently write thank-you, get well, or encouragement notes to my friends and family, and these will come in very handy.  Thanks, Sue!  
Have a great week, everyone!


  1. I'm really happy you like the swap. :) I got your sweet card today. Thank you so much for taking the time to search for me and send a note. Congrats on your win. Isn't it fun? :)

  2. Congratulations on your win! Love your dragonfly mug rug.

  3. I love your mug rug! Such great fabrics, and the stitching is soo perfect. I would love to participate in a swap sometime. Maybe that would be a great goal for me in 2011!


I love to hear from you!
