|From BrandieL, in Indiana|
Remember, I made this armchair pincushion and a thread catcher for my partner, and I'd been wondering what I might receive from someone else.
Actually, when I saw this mini quilt posted on the Flickr swap site, I hoped it would be for me, and suggested the maker send it directly! I immediately loved all the blues and greens, the pop of bright red and yellow in the center, and the linen background.

There were other treats in the box, including a mug rug, two fat quarters of pretty fabric, embroidery floss, and chocolate!
What's a mug rug, you ask? It's an oversized coaster, big enough to hold a mug and a snack, like a couple of cookies. In fact, here it is at work, already.
|It looks just right on my desk.|
Many thanks to Brandie, for her generosity and for making me something I really, really like! A lot!
I'll probably hang it in my sewing room, but doesn't it look pretty here?
