A LITTLE GIVEAWAY!

Have you seen those cute little mug rugs all over blogland?  Ya know, the ones you put on your desk for coffee or tea (or a diet mountain dew!) and a little snack.  I have wanted to make one for a while now but just hadn't been motivated.  Recently, I came across a great tutorial on how to make a double hourglass block, by Allison at Cluck Cluck Sew.  Well, I decided to combine the 2 projects and here is what I have...

back

Can you tell I have a thing for polka dots :).  It is about 8.5" sqaure.  I really love the way it turned out (even though it's not perfect)!  And it was truly easy to put together, thanks Allison!   I will definately be making a double hourglass quilt in 2011.

Oh, the giveaway, duh!  Well, I decided to give this adorable little mug to one of you.  I am just sure it would look perfect on one of your desks.  For a chance win, just leave me a comment on this post.  For a second chance to win you can become a follower and then leave me a comment telling me so.  If you are already a follower just leave me a comment letting me know.  PLEASE leave an e-mail in your comment so I can contact you if you win!  You can leave like this, beth(dot)dodd(at)att(net), if you don't want it out in cyberspace.  Comments will be closed at 8:00 pm (cst) on Thursday, January 20 and I will announce the winner shortly after.  U.S. residents only this time (sorry!)

Good luck!

Ummm, can it hold a bloody mary or a spiked drink? Those are your favorite, right :)

Hey Beth! I am now a follower! My email is Amie_Kenney@hotmail.com. I love the mug rug! I could totally use one of those here at home as we don't really have a lot of coasters we use.
