Back to our regularly scheduled program...

Hi Everyone,

I had a hard October... which put me behind for my commitments in November..which made me too busy to post on this here blog. Everything seems to be evening out here so let's get back to some fun times. Whaddya say?

Sweet sweet Meghan made me this adorable Mug Rug...and it came on my birthday... how perfect is that?

Mug Rug from Meghan

As usual I am going to do a little giveaway this week. I will post about it tomorrow.

In the mean time here are some things I have been up to...

It was Pillow Talk Swap time again and my partner wanted a beachy pillow in Tiffany Blue and Tan with a lot of White. She had a lot of shell pillows in her inspiration photos so I made her this:

PTS 4 All Done

It is 20" and the center is pebbled (a first) around faux trapunto (another first). The rest of the pillow is quilted in a bubble pattern. It was my first snail trail set of blocks as well.

I also was part of the Scrappy Mug Rug Swap here is what I made:

I joined the Layer Cake Quilt Along and these are the first two blocks:

My birthday was last week and my husband bought me a whole wall of Guterman thread and a 35" x 70" cutting mat (I have been making do with an 18" x 24" all this time) what a great guy :)

Hope everyone had a great Holiday! See ya tomorrow!

Talk soon!
