Thursday thoughts

I have made a few little gifts to send to bloggy quilting friends this week.  Tis the season for giving! 

These post cards are a modification of Carol Doak’s paper piecing pattern from her group.

And my first mug rug…

I’ll be sewing up a storm for Friday Night Sew In tomorrow: a few more mug rugs (3 to be exact) and I am madly finishing an I Spy quilt for my granddaughter’s Christmas present. 

I think it is better to give than to receive.  It certainly gives a deeper feeling.  Receiving is mostly a shorter lived joy.  But this doesn’t mean I don’t want to receive things Smile
