SheridanLA sent the perfect package! Not only did she nail my color preferences, my love of quilting, my love of batiks, and my love of nature, she also sent two extras that are right up my alley -  autographed romance novels from two authors she knows. How awesome is that? The front of the mug rug was from the pattern for a paper-pieced Mariners' Compass that she had started several years ago. She said she had stalked my profile and Pinterest boards. Now I know how thoroughly she did so. I'm one of the quilters in the Quilt Block Swaps who often requests paper-pieced blocks.

SheridanLA said the backing fabric reminded her of forests and the night sky, her favorite parts of camping. I also love camping, but the backing reminds me of the snow-laden evergreens that I would see every winter in my parents' backyard.

The novels are on my desk waiting for the weekend when I hope to have some time to enjoy them. Both authors are new to me, so I'm really looking forward to exploring their works. As a retired English teacher I can never have too many books! And after teaching 'quality literature' for so many years, it's my secret pleasure to immerse myself in romance novels and mysteries.  Grin

Thank you again, SheridanLA, for such a thoughtful combination of gifts!

I'm so glad you liked everything! I was giddy when I saw your love of batiks! Hope you like the books as well...they'll be nice to curl up with while you're drinking your cocoa Smiley

Oooh, the gallery's already started!  That mug rug is stunning; I love the fabric, the pattern, and everything about it!  I'm also impressed by the incredibly neat stitching - even on the back!!  I'm having to hide the backs of mine 'cause they're pretty hairy. ;P  Exciting extras, too!  I can't wait to see what styles everyone else is doing too!

Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without.
