If you are a "non-responder or OpenID-er" which to me means I have no way of responding to a comment that you've left, please leave a way for me to get in touch with you, especially if you're participating in a blog give-away or if you are asking for information or links.
By leaving your email within your comment, I can find you. I realize that this is sometimes a scary thing to do with scams and all but if you disguise the email as say.....

this is the perfect way to hide from the unwanted eye. So please help me out if you are one of the non-responders.
Thank you, in advance.....Ravelly Rhonda!!

Travel & Sewing

First off, greetings to all and a big thanks to Thearica at Pigtales and Quilts for hosting the sharing day. Make sure pop over to see what others are up to by clicking HERE!
 
 
I took a little vacation from life and drove to Padre Island for the weekend.
Yes, that's me on the beach. The weather was a balmy 72 degrees (in January)....loved it!!

Look at those waves!
 

 
The ferry ride was fun.

Have I mentioned that I don't like bridges.....EEEEEEeeeek!
 
Watching this video of "S" curves will make you dizzy but it was fun driving it.

The moon was so beautiful I had to try and get a photo of it before the fog set in.
And now back to life!
 
My passion this 2013 year seems to
 be making and sharing Mug Rugs which are just small blocks quilted and bound
 to use for coffee, tea or whatever beverage you like.
I like giving them away each week just to bring a smile to someone.
Some of these have already found new places to live while others are in-waiting.
