Good Friends

Yesterday was Tidbit Tuesday, wasn't it? Oops! This is one of those weeks where I've lost track of the days and completely passed over the idea of Tuesday...LOL! 

I promise to have a tidbit next Tuesday! Honestly, I'm running out of tidbits to share! So the tidbits may not be coming each and every week. 

Unless you yourselves have a tidbit you'd like to share? If you do, please email me at and put Tidbit Tuesday in the subject line. If you have a blog, please include that as well so I can link to you and give you proper credit! :D

In the mean time I have an early Christmas gift to share with you! 

One of the best things I've discovered while blogging are friends. People that I never would have otherwise met, which is an awful thought in itself. So many wonderful friends I've met! 

One friend in particular who knows just how much I love turtles. She made me this....

A mug rug! My very first mug rug! Isn't it cute!!?

She also sent me a design journal! We had been talking about these journals that had graph paper in them that were bound a few months ago and then she goes and sends me one....with a hand made journal cover WITH TURTLES!!!! 

Close up of the turtles. :)

And the final touch of the matching beaded bookmark!

The inside...

Miss Sarah, thank you so much!! Every time I use this journal I will remember how lucky I am to have a friend like you! :)

Much Love!!!


  1. That is so cute. Where do you find those journals?

  2. your design journal is adorable! and i luv your mug rug! can't wait to see what designs you come up with ;O)

  3. That mug rug is super cute. I love the embroidered message.

  4. You're so very welcome, Karrie!! I can't wait to see the fabulous designs you fill that journal up with!

  5. Sweet! Merry Christmas and may every moment be joyful for you and yours!!

  6. Wow, how nice! Love the journal.

  7. They're so pretty! The turtles and beaded bookmark nudge the journal cover over the top. What fun gifts from a sweet friend!

  8. Now how sweet is that?? That's wonderful!!! Stuff like this just makes me smile big! Merry Christmas!!

  9. Very cute journal cover KL!! I checked her blog trying to locate a how-to/tutorial but couldn't find one. Do you know of one out there somewhere? And how about a source for those graph-paper journals?

    Thanks and Merry Christmas!!

  10. I'm a turtle lover, too - and have journal envy! I think I may need to create one of these myself!!! My hubby gets the graph paper journals for me at either office supply stores, or the local college bookstore.

  11. that is such a cute mug rug! I love them and want to make more! new years resolution, perhaps? :)


Thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to comment. I really love hearing from you!! :)

Happy Quilting!
