Mug Rug Swap on FWFS - The One I Sent!

 The person I sent my mug rug to never posted it on the Linky page for Fort Worth Fabric Studio blog so I'm posting a picture myself. 
 These swaps are fun if everyone follows through. At least I did get one in return whereas some people didn't. 
 Anyway, this is the one I made for the person's name I got which is Julia Juedes. I don't know her or even if she has a blog. I hope all is well with her. 
 I thought it would be fun to do a little embroidery and use some stitches on my machine.  Sorry the last picture is blurry. I should have checked it when I loaded it, but you can see that I used variegated thread. 

 It was fun, and thanks again to Lindsey for hosting the swap.

Mug Rug Swap FWFS

 Lindsey at the Ft. Worth Fabric Studio blog is hosting a mug rug swap. I thought it would be fun to join.This is the mug rug I received from Tracey Hindman. If I find out she has a blog, I will come back and edit my post.

 Thank you Tracy for the beautiful mug rug made with my most favorite colors! She also sent me a pretty fat quarter which will come in very handy. 
 I love it all including the sweet note!

 Thank you, Lindsey, for hosting a fun way to share and meet new people!

Nancy Zieman's 2015 Pillow Challenge!

 I follow Nancy's blog, and when I saw this post, I knew I wanted to enter. I had planned to enter more than one pillow, but time got away from me, and my embroidery machine broke.
 So I'm just entering the one, but it is my all time favorite!
 Voting starts on March 7, 2015. I will post again when the link is available. 
 I know many of you can relate to this for sure! My friend, Jenny, and I made her one several years ago, and I finally got around to making myself one. I look at it everyday when I come into my sewing room!

 Pictures really don't do it justice! I used several different fonts on my computer to make the words in Font Engine from Embird. I love Embird embroidery software! 
 I hope you will vote for my pillow! Thanks!

Surprise Gift in the Mail!

It's so much fun to receive a gift in the mail, and especially a surprise gift from a friend. 

 Today I received this box of note cards that are images of vintage McCalls patterns. They are so darned cute! 

 The side of the box looks like a tape measure, and the envelopes look like pattern print. 

 Let me just say I am one happy girl!

If you want some for yourself, you can order them here at BasBleu
 Thanks for stopping by!

Going to the chapel............

 Not me, but our grandson, Bubba, got engaged during Christmas. We are all so excited! He arranged the cutest way to surprise his girlfriend, Alyssa. She had no clue until she turned around that he was asking her to marry him. He had asked a photographer friend to play along like they were shooting a promo for her business. 

Alyssa made special cards to ask her bridesmaids to be in her wedding, and she also made one for our Shelby when she asked her to be her flower girl. Shelby is so excited! She loves Bubba and Alyssa so much! 
They are entered in a contest on Facebook to win a bridal package using a really cute photo booth at their wedding. If you are on FB, would you please click on this picture link, and vote for them? We would all appreciate it so much. There will also be some other prizes, and you all know how expensive weddings can be. Oh, the happy day will be September 26, 2015!

Thanks so much!
