Short and sweet.......

That's what this post will be as this might be the latest at night, or the earliest in the morning, that I have ever posted. I am just about to turn out the lights after having a great night at a quilt-in and I didn't even leave the house!! The members of my Seasons BOM group joined me for an on-line quilt-in and wow! did we have a fun night chatting. Some folks actually sewed and posted photos! There were prize giveaways, too. I had fabric and some little cookbooks to give away and another member, Barb, also shared some fabric and patterns so there was lots of anticipation for who would win the prizes offered each hour or so. It kept me very busy tallying up the names to put in the drawings. Plus, I had to snack occasionally and I had to let the dog out a couple times. Otherwise, he slept through all the fun. I managed to make a little something and I will use it alot. So, would you like to see what I made at the Quilt-In........

A coaster!! That was all I could get done but as I said "I'll use it alot!" There will be a "mugwrap" to match if my little project works out. If not, it will go in the scrap bag. That bear on my mug is reminding me that I best get to sleep. I'm betting I'll sleep really well tonight! :-)

I like your cheery coaster. Is the mugwrap pattern something that you could share? I have a commercial cover to keep cans and bottles cold but nothing to keep my mugs warm, and this is just the time of year for hot drinks. The set could make a great little gift for someone next year also. I think that I still have some of a print with little teapots. That might be so cute that I would have to keep it for myself! Maybe a little lace around the bottom edge, maybe a bow, who knows?

Congratulations for a night well-spent! I checked the the message exchange of the Seasons BOM group - you all rock! I, on the other hand, was deep asleep but had you in my dreams ;-). Well, my excuse was that with 7 hours time difference it was really inconvinient, considering that today I am the driver for all sport/cultural activities of The Little Miss. Maybe next time...
