goodies for a friend

A while ago I shipped a birthday bundle off to my friend Maria in Australia. I didn't want to share them here until I knew she had received them. Well today is Maria's birthday (Happy Birthday!) and she posted a picture of the goodies on her blog, so I know they arrived! You really should go check out her blog, Life on the Block. She makes such lovely things and has a beautiful garden too!

Anyways, back to the goodies. In September we had Quilt across Texas & I picked up a charm pack of the special Moda fabric that was designed for the shop hop. Since Maria made me an Australia mugrug a while back, I thought she should have a Texas mugrug for her sewing space! And, I made another "hoop". I am enjoying doing these with bits of fabric, felt, embroidery floss... on Maria's I even added some beads and a charm...

It's so much fun to share with friends all over the world. What have you made lately?

Thank you again Ellyn for my lovely gifts.
The Mug Rug is next to my computer to use.
