Just Plugging Along!

As you may know if you read my blog yesterday, I had to turn in my sewing machine and my laptop for repairs on the same day this week (criminey!). I am feeling a little out of sorts, but luckily my friend, Mitzi, lent me her old machine today so I have been able to get some work done. I have two mug rugs that must be finished tonight because they are to be given to teachers tomorrow. I only have binding to do on one and I need to finish quilting and bind the other. Whew! You saved me, Mitzi!
I also wanted to mention how happy I am because of Clover and Violet; I won their Giveaway Day giveaway! I am SOOOO very excited because it is a kit of materials for their new quilt along they are starting that includes embroidery.

Oooooohhhhhh! Aaaaahhhhh! I'm a little worried about adding something else to my plate, but I think if you're a quilter and you don't have at least 6-10 things going on at once, you just aren't trying hard enough! Plus I'm about to be done with a couple of pieces. Anyway, you have got to go over and check out this quilt along. It looks like it's going to be so very cute and I was just saying in one of my Giveaway Day entries the other day that I really wanted to incorporate some embroidery into a quilt because I love how it looks! Oh yeah, and there's a great giveaway from her sponsor for one lucky person who finishes their quilt top: 6 half yards (or 12 fat quarters) of fabric from Sew Lux Fabrics (that's their sponsor!). Fabulous! There's also a limited number of kits for this quilt that are available through Sew Lux as well. Check it out!
Well, I know this is short but I'm posting late and I've got to get dinner going (and finish mug rugs!). Hope everyone's kids finish out the school year on a happy note!
