Thanks April!

Awhile ago I joined the 10-minute rug hooker group that April set up on her website. The idea is to commit to hooking 10 minutes a day to slowly but surely work away on your project. April put everyone's name into a drawing and I was the lucky winner! I received this wonderful tote in the mail today and it's so cool! One thing I couldn't tell from April's pictures, was the great texture of the chenille yarn she used on the border of the tote so I'm sharing a close-up of that part. I can't wait to use it - thanks April!

Congratulations on winning Gayle! What a darling mat! I need to adopt that 10min a day mantra.

That's such a great idea - doing 10 minutes a day. I'm taking my first rug hooking class on Thursday and look so forward to it, but I'm also a stitcher and quilter too, so 10 minutes a day would work for me! Congratulations on winning!

Just got your cute comment. Now you have to tell me where you live. I love your hexagon quilt. I have one that I made for moda's website that I need to hurry and post a tutorial for. Ok, I love the flowers that you make out of an old t-shirt, I'd love a tutorial on how to make them.
