    Oh Dabbler! It's so pretty! Where'd you find the yellow and green marble fabric? I've been looking all over for that! I've been collecting marble fabrics for our bed quilt eventually. So far I have blue, purple, orange, pink, and a dark gray. I need yellow and green and one other color, and then I can start!

    It's very pretty, mine is my first as well and simple. I hope my partner likes it as well. All we can do is our best.

    Love the stained glass colors! I think Moda Marbles tons of selections in colors and also connecting threads has marbles pretty reasonably about 40 colors.

    I hope to see lots more pictures. with so many being sent all over surely there are photos coming in. Maybe today is my lucky mug rug day.

    Shoveling snow is never a picnic. Blowing it I guess could be fun. in theory. when someone else is doing it. We are extremely behind in our snow but its falling on the higher slopes so its fine with me and keeping the water content what it should be. 100 percent right now. I will take that. I wonder are we going to miss it this year or is it going to come in a flurry of snow dumps at the wrong time. It feels to warm to be winter. almost 45 to 50 in the day. way wrong. I will take however.

    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.

    I'm a straggler! Final day and sending today! I made a 2nd MR last night, was up until 2 this morning finishing it. I had to rip stitches twice, once I had the entire things sewn but had it all wrong so had to rrrrip! I felt as if I wasn't doing her right by not sending her favorite colors the first time so, she gets a pretty garden with butterflies and her fave colors! I'll post the picture on the Pictoral Page with all the others. (Give you a hint of the favorite colors!!) AND it's going far east in the US where I bet she could use a little floral pickmeup!
    Thank You Lord for answering my prayers, in this I am truely blessed!

    I just wanted to say that if whoever has my name is late getting mine out, thats just fine. One never knows what goes on in ones life to prolong the things we love doing. But I would gratefully take any of the ones I've seen, they are ALL just awesome!!!

    Thank you - I found the fabrics at JoAnn's; it's in their precut/fat quarter bundles near the quilting notions/books and patterns in our store. I also have a very similar collection that I picked up as part of a shop hop premium - it was the carrot on the end of the stick - visit all the shops, have your passport stamped at each one and you get this beautiful bundle at your final stop. I also went back to one of the shops and picked up half dozen more half yard cuts and then made them into fat quarters as one of my swap partners was looking for brights.
    Be good to yourself - do one thing each day that makes you smile.

    Beautiful coloring. They remind me of the colors I use to wear back in the 80's...Ooohh so long ago! But I love them, I called them Royal colors. Beautiful first attempt!

    My secret partner QuiltyLouise has already posted that she's received my mug rugs, so I thought I would post a couple of pictures of what I sent her. Her favorite colors are purple and yellow.

I saw one with rick rack on a previous mug rug swap and wanted to give it a try. Easy to do!!

    I really like that sewing themed fabric. It would also make a great sewing machine cover! I wonder what fabric line that is?

    Kiwiquilter your kitties are just adorable. I love orange cats. So cute with their pink paws and noses.

    vanginney, I'm in Florida but it's kind of cold here tonight. Will be below freezing tonight and in the 20's tomorrow night. The days are warmer but it's hard to get over really cold nights. Brrrrr!!

    Mine was delivered at 10:09 am this morning. I'm waiting to hear if she liked it!

    Dabbler, I've been getting the other marbles I've been collecting from Joann's too, but I haven't seen the yellow in the 2 stores I've been in. I didn't want to have to go for the Moda marbles because the only way I've found some of the colors I wanted was $9-10/yard, and nobody seemed to have all the colors I wanted at the same place. I'd been lucky and gotten the others a couple at a time over the last few months as I've been at Joann's and they had them.

    Today was -48. Skin freezes in 15 minutes. Never saw my puppies go outside & in so fast before. The North & South Pole were warmer today then it is here. Pure insanity, the only thing keeping me sane is sewing. Florida sounds lovely!

    I got my beautiful Mug Rug! Thank you Juanita, sorry I do not know your QB nickname! It is the most beautiful embellished with a butterfly, embroidered, with pretty stitching. I love the color of it too! I think it was really nice of you to include a pretty purple FQ, added surprise.

    It was really thoughtful of you to make such a pretty mug rug. I'm going to put some fabric protectant on it and use it on my coffee table.

    Editing to say I found your note JuanitaBean and I'm amazed this is your first mug rug, it is so perfect! Lovely!

    FINISHED!! Just in time for tomorrow's mailing deadline! Sorry I waited so long, but I have been having respiratory issues, and low oxygen makes me shaky---not too helpful for hand work!! Sorry the stitches are not too even...Might have to learn to machine quilt since this is becoming more and more of a problem. I made 2, and am sending long a few little trinkets I made too... It is going FAR< FAR< away from me...Hint: The zip code has 2 numbers that are the same in it!!...Am I supposed to post the pics or is the receiver?
