Gifts From Jodi

I was just plain spoiled last week while my friends Jodi and Lori were here.

Jodi came all the way from her home state of Oregon bearing gifts.

And I can now say I am the proud owner of a MUG RUG hand made especially by Jodi!
Have you read the delightful posts Jodi has written on Mug Rugs? Make sure to run over, even if it's for a review.

Cute little mini marshmallows, that Jodi shows how to order HERE.

yummy treats

hand delivered all the way from Oregon.

Jodi also gave me an entire set of her new templates that she has developed.
(*These will be available on her web site Pleasant Home by the end of the month)
I am really looking forward to playing with these templates!

The first set I want to use will be to make the Mini Double Hour Glass quilt. Jodi gives a free tutorial on Pleasant Home HERE.
Lori made these blocks while she was at my house last week, and they turned out so cute.
A great way to use up scraps, and the pattern is also Jelly Roll friendly.

Thank you Jodi! It feels like Christmas already.

I love the double hourglass block and have made it several times over the years. How convenient to have Jodi's templates to make it. I really love the owl mug and mug rug. How nice to be so spoiled. : )

What a great friend! She is so sweet when she sends me messages, so I would imagine she would be a great friend too! : ) The owl mug is adorable and the mug rug looks great with it (of course)!

Have a great day!
