More Tortilla Cozies and some Lovely Packages!

To solve the human equation, we need to add love, subtract hate, multiply good, and divide between truth and error.           -Janet Coleman

I have made a couple more tortilla cozies and decided I would stick to just one size...................Again,I used some machine embroidery patterns.........

Here are the fronts.....


and the backs...............
I also got some wonderful mail this week.............here are two blocks I received from my BSA swap partner, Susan.....The top block is called Scrap Bagger and the bottom one is Goose Creek.  Thank you, Susan!

 I also got a lovely package from my other swap partner, Mary.......in this swap we have a group of wonderful ladies who swap a mug rug every two months.....Mary and I decided we each wanted a patriotic theme this time............here is what I found in Mary's surprise package..............
 In addition to the lovely mug rug I got a koozie, a sewing gauge and this beautiful crocheted pot holder....thank you Mary....I love it all!

Below is the mug rug I sent Mary...............



 That's all for now.......I go back to work tonight so I am going to try to take a short nap so Ta-Ta for now!  See you next time!

Hello, my friend! Just got home from (yet another) trip to Phoenix (on 6 hours notice Wednesday). Had to log on to see what you've been up to while I was away. Love the cozies, and especially the ME parts :-).

Love your swaps, how fun!! Some day I'll stay home long enough to make something else and write a blog post about it!!
