Welcome to my blog!

Glad to see you here, Welcome to my blog. I love quilting, fabric, colors, etc. and am a mother to two boys 22 and 16, grandma to one beautiful little girl. I work as an RN in Labor and Delivery so I get to see little babies come into this world and help their moms and families through it. I love my job. Many of my co-workers are quilters too, so we like to chat about it while we can. I love comments, so please let me know what you think, or just say hi!

Mug Rug Love

I just went to the mailbox and found this awesome package that I have been waiting for!  I didn't know what it would look like because the mug rug swap was a secret swap so you didn't know who your partner was.
She did great didn't she?  

Cute little owl

Love the fabrics she used.


Thanks Karie!  I love it so much.  
Karie has lots of cute pictures on Flickr - check her out at Four Monkeys Quilts
or check out our Mug Rug Swap Adventure 2 Group here.

Here are some pictures of the mug rug I made for my partner Linda at Stray Stitches, so check out her blog.
She always has interesting facts, photos, links to giveaways.
Sorry about the bad pictures, took them in my car right before sending them out.  Linda has a better picture on her blog.

I really enjoyed making the mug rug and especially receiving one!
I will definitely do another swap and encourage you all to try it too if you haven't already.
