Christmas Mug Rug Swap

I signed up to participate in the Christmas 2012 Mug Rug Swap that is going on at Flickr.  I have been in other swaps that go on there and for the most part have been very pleased with what my swap partner has made for me.

To the left is the mug rug that I made for LeslieCan'tStopQuilting.  I sure hope she likes it.  I'm going to tuck in some extra things to brighten her Christmas, too. 

On the right is the mug rug that GuiltyQuilter made for me.  She also included a few other "goodies" in my package.  I love the mug rug and the extras she sent along was awfully nice of her.

I'm working on a couple of Christmas gifts for the grandchildren, so I'm off to the sewing studio to do that.  Pictures will be coming later!

Sick hubby

My sweet hubby has been sick.  :(
He has some sort of stomach virus...I think I'm pretty safe to say that it wasn't my cooking that gave him this.

He came down with it on Saturday night and as of today, Tuesday, he is slowly recovering.  Sure hope he starts to feel better soon.  Hate to see him sick.

Katherine F. Carnahan

Today is a very special day in my heart.  It is my mother's birthday...99 years ago she was born to Bessie and George.

My mom played a strong and important part in my life.  We were best friends as I was a teenager.  When Daddy died in 1966, our relationship changed and we became even closer.  She was always there for me, and I tried to be there for her.

I still miss Mama and she's been gone for 21 years now.  Hard to believe.

If you are lucky enough to have your mom, give her a hug and tell her just how much you love her.
