Blog Hop Party with Giveaways!

Welcome to my stop for the Blog Hop Party with Giveaways! Thanks to the Quilting Gallery for organizing this great hop.


I started this snowman table runner a couple of weekends ago, at a Saturday sewing retreat with a couple of friends.
Those 75 snowball blocks were made using the stitch and flip method, with corner squares measuring 1 1/8". Can you say 'teeny-tiny'?
The snowmen on the ends are all fused, but I've only just begun stitching around them. So far only one of the six can see and none have arms yet. I doubt this one will be finished in time for Christmas, but snowmen can stay out until the snow melts, right?

In the process of making all those snowball blocks I ended up with a couple extras. Combine that with a desire to make something to give away during this blog hop party and voila - a mug rug.


For a chance to win this mug rug, leave me a comment before the party ends on November 26th. I'll choose a winner on November 27th and I'm willing to ship anywhere in the world, but make sure I have a way to contact you if you win. Followers get a second entry, just leave me a second comment letting me know how you follow.
