300 posts give-away and a snow day!!!!

Early this morning.......... lake effect snow.  Doesn't hurt my feelings much!
We were supposed to get about 8 inches of lake effect, however we got at least 10 and it'still coming down.

I'll have to do something about the sidewalk later.........
much later..............

After all, there is sewing to do!  See this Andy Warhol style fabric?  Little miss V and I are going to make this into an art bag for her today.

and see these adorable karate monkeys?  Those are going to become a padded bag for a friends daughters karate stick.  I'm sure it has a name, but I don't know what it's called.


And now for the 300 post part, I feel the need to host a give-away in honor of 300 posts!  The mug rug you see here is NOT the give-away.  Sorry, that one was a lovely surprise gift several years ago from an online quilter friend from Japan!  It sits next to my sewing machine all the time. Thanks Yuki, wherever you are! 
However, I am going to give away a mug rug.  I joined an online mug rug swap and of course I made waaaaaaaay too many mug rugs because they are so much fun!  I used to just make mug mats, but mug rugs are wider so there is room for your muffin, or donut or whatever yumminess you plan to snack on with your coffee or tea or wine......... yes, they can be used with a wine glass or a beer mug too!  How versatile!!!  So, if you want to be in my drawing- leave me a comment and I'll figure out the details by Friday.  Scouts honor!

Well Mare, sounds like you have a good day in store for you. A little chilly perhaps, no? I think 300 is a grand number so count me in. I love mug rugs, too. Yippie yahooie!!!

As someone new to the quilting world, I've been wanting to start with a mug rug. An example in hand would be so helpful!

I've been meaning to make one of those mug rugs. Winning one from you would be even better! Love the one you received from your friend! Congratulations on 300 posts.

Totally agree about mug rugs. They can become quite addictive.
