February Christmas Club Give-Away Gift

Heads up Christmas crafters - our lovely give-away gift this month is brought to us courtesy of Caroll, from Attic Window Quilt Shop, and Chris, the shop owner!

Caroll made the gorgeous mug rug, and Chris, bless her, threw in a couple of gorgeous fat quarters!  This is the back: I love these fabrics!  They remind me that spring isn't too far away!

A big thank you to Caroll and Chris!  They live in my state and I'm so hoping to meet them in person one of these days.  Probably this summer....it's just too cold to leave the house right now.  Remember, all you have to do to be in the give-away is make one Christmas gift this month for your 2011 stash, and link up back here at the end of the month!

Did I mention it's cold?  Although, the sun WAS shining today....I stuck my head out the front door and took this pic, so I'd remember what it looks like.

It's not a very good pic, sorry.  I was in a hurry.  And I was embarrassing my oldest son, who thought the neighbors might see me in my jammies, sticking my head out the door taking a picture of nothing.  My mom didn't tell me parenting would be so fun!

  Hermoine, my kitty, was following the sunbeam all over the house.  She finally ended up on my bed.

She loves that pink rug that's on my pillow.  I had just washed it, and wanted to vacuum before putting it back.  It stays under my sewing table, and keeps my foot pedal from scooting across the floor.  She thinks it's hers. There isn't much that she doesn't think is hers.  She even eats the dog's food, as you can probably tell.


Tomorrow I'm going to try to remember to take pics for my needlebook tutorial.  I keep forgetting until after it's dark.  I seem to be in a winter slump - forgetful, no energy, just wanting to hibernate.  I feel like I'm not fully waking up each day.  I know I should put on my big girl panties and go for a brisk walk....hmmmmm....

Yeah, right.

Hermoine is adorable! Some days it's just fun to embarrass the kids.

The sunshine looks wonderful on a snowy day.

I am snowed in too...no kids home to embarrass but two dogs and a cat to keep me company; ). I am interested in the pillow too. Is it your design?

Val said...

Ya know I have never made a mug rug....ya think I need to add that to my list of to do's? I received a beautiful one from Joslyn for Christmas and I have it here in front of me now....maybe I'll just have to do that :)

We need a warm fuzzy kitty here in OH....awwwww.

AND congrats on your interview on Amy's blog! Loved it!

Rhonda said...

Greetings! Joanne L. sent me to this link. I made a "mug rug" ...the theme Valentine. I had seen several other blogs about the mug coaster type projects and decided to give it a try. I think I was able to become a "FOLLOWER" of your blog making it easier for me to fine you again and again.

Yep! That's a big kitty! Glad she found lots of sun, her mat and an Allie Original pillow.

Hello from Northwest Oregon, where we would gladly trade our gray skies and rain for some blue skies and freezing temperatures. I I found you through Amy, and am so glad I did. Christmas through the year has been something I worked on on my own last year. It will be so much more fun to join you on the journey.

Being from Northwest Oregon myself...I agree with Beth about trading you weather for a bit. :)

Thank you for posting all the tutorials and ideas....Which one first?

Kelly@ Charming Chatter said...

Cute prize this month. So glad you got to see the sun, and looking forward to your tutorial.

Loving the February giveaway...I am looking outside your front door and thinking that would be nice. Would you believe we have about 4 feet of snow outside? I keep hoping it will melt, but it's still there.
