Winner of my Nancy Drew Giveaway!

"You know you're getting old when you stoop down to tie your shoelaces and wonder what else you could do while you're down there"   -----George Burns



 I am still trying to get my schedule back to "normal", (whatever that may be), after finishing my x-ray presentation on Daylight Savings "Spring Forward" weekend.......and actually being at work when the time changed.......(I do that twice a year since I work the weekend graveyard shift)..............

So I have a confession to make............even after being there and watching the atomic clock move forward an hour, I got off work at 7:00 on Sunday morning and FORGOT to change my clocks at home!  I rested very well all day Sunday and went to sleep......woke up Monday morning when the alarm rang and suddenly realized that I was going to be an hour late to work........uh huh.......

This week I attended my very first opera!  The Barber of Seville was wonderful!  I will have to do that again............so with that plus another commitment Friday evening before I went to work....my sewing time was cut a bit short but I did manage to squeeze in enough time to get these two rug mugs made..............
This one is for a swap...............and it went out today.....I have been practicing on the mug rugs now with my embroidery machine and it is so much fun!   

My son asked me to make him a mug rug and here is his......again I added some machine embroidery......he loved it!

 
 
 Well now................how about the giveaway winner????

Now that Nancy Drew is looking for clues elsewhere..........I have asked Mr. Random to lend a hand and tell me who won my giveaway..............you remember the Nancy Drew charms plus some Autumn and Spring charms I am giving away????  


Here is the winning number..............

I, like Chez above, couldn't comment on Bloglovin either. I love your mug rugs (even if you call them rug mugs in one instance in your post, jaja). I know Josh will get a lot of use from his and your swap partner has got to love those pretty colors. Congratulations to the winner of your giveaway. I like charms and yours are beautiful. Lucky winner :)

Congratulations to Barb.

What??? Not set your clocks back? Oh dear. I'm sure there were probably a lot of perople in the same boat.

Your mug rugs look wonderful. I'll bet your son loved his.

Welcome to the wonderful world of opera! I'm a long time opera goer. I'd like to suggest "Carmen" as another fun opera for a newbie. "La Traviata" and "Madame Butterfly" are also good ones. One of my all time favorite operas is "Lucia di Lammermoor." What will you see next?

Wonderful mug rugs, what part of Texas are you at?

Karen said...

Funny about the time change! Great mug rugs, something I have yet to make.

Congrats to Barb! I love your mug rugs, especially the ladybug :-).

I've seen several operas... my favorite is Phantom of the Opera (on Broadway, of course!).

I hope you're having a great week and you're back to "normal" (term used loosely, LOL).
