Small Finishes.

I am pleased that I am getting my mojo back and have a few SMALL finishes to show you.
One of our swimming ladies is not well so a friend asked me if I could make her a Rug Mug,


and I had the this in my box of goodies to go with it. Hope it cheers her up.
Also made a reversible Mug Rug for the friend.

    I hope your friend gets well fast. I HaTE to be sick because it makes me feel like I am wasting time!: (

    O OOOOO _ when someone mentioned Spring your way I could really believe it because our "warmth is spreading your way and your cool is here at my house" You really could keep that stuff - I much prefer the warmth and the flowers! LOL

    I had to secretly laugh today in a store I over heard one lady tell the other that she HATED the warm and was ecstatic about the cool stuff.In my mind I was telling her -jee whiz - move to Alaska! LOL
