A Lost Giveaway Received and My Mug Rugs Have Been Sent!

Last week I received this wonderful quilt pattern from Terry Atkinson of Atkinson Designs  called Four Square Farmhouse.  I won it in a giveaway in the Fall-O-Ween Blog Hop last October and it had been lost in the mail.

I am so happy it has found it's way to my house.  Thank you, Terry!

 Yesterday was the last day for mailing my mug rugs for the Quilting Gallery's Mug Rug Swap.  I finished mine in the wee hours of the night before (I have a good excuse).  I ended up with my two grand kids in tow at the post office to mail my mug rugs across the pond.  I have never mailed anything overseas before so I didn't know what to expect but it was much easier than I thought it would be.  It was actually harder to keep the two grand kids in one place than it was to mail the mug rugs.  The grand kids were fascinated by the post office.  Here is a picture of the mug rugs I sent to my secret swap partner I really hope she likes them.

Oh my excuse for pushing the mug rugs right up to the deadline - our granddaughter has had pneumonia for the better part of four weeks.  She finally made it back to preschool yesterday (Monday).  She seems to be doing much better but is still on antibiotics (her third course), two inhalers, and her nebulizer.  Our grandson (her brother) had a ear infection with a ruptured ear drum.  So, two previously unhappy, grumpy, sick grandchildren are happy and healthier again - YIPEE!!!

Have a pieceful evening,
