New Mug Rug

Quilting Bloggers are really the nicest people! Look what recently arrived in the mail for me: Isn't it darling? A few weeks ago, LuvToStitch posted that she had gotten a lovely mug rug in the mail from GreenMare, who had sponsored a mug rug giveaway to commenters on her blog. I left a comment on LuvToStitch's blog complimenting her sweet little rug, then thought nothing more of it. A few days later, I heard from Mary at GreenMare who had seen my comment, and would love to send a mug rug to me too! I really like the back too.Mary & I exchanged emails, and come to find out, she's from Mishicot, WI, a few miles from my hometown of Green Bay. Go Packers! Mary also sent me something so "Wisconsony" that I after I put it up in my cubicle this morning, I pulled over my co-worker buddy from Racine to take a look. It is a series of postcards featuring life-size art cow statues decorated all different ways. I particularly liked the quilted one call "Cowpatch" and the one split in two pieces called "Half & Half". 8)

I've been on the receiving end of so much bounty lately that I have decided to sponsor a giveaway for my 3rd Blogging Anniversary, which is coming up in a few weeks. I can't believe I have been blogging for 3 years! I'm making it my mission at the upcoming Dallas Quilt Celebration to find some extra nice goodies for the giveaway. Stay tuned for details on how to participate.
