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.....
me at yahoo dot com
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!!

DWM Plus Hop Winners

Make sure you pop over to Judy's to see more Design Wall Mondays.
These are the mug rugs that I've been working on for the past few days. As I mentioned in a previous post, I really needed to practice making bias binding for circular rugs. I was pleasantly surprised this time because everything worked out.......Whew!  I am only using fabrics from my stash and no, the stash is not getting any smaller.....LOL...it's growing and running amok in all over my sewing room floor.
These rugs will appear in a future Thursday mug rug give aways so watch for them.

Update on the barn I'm working on. All the fabrics are from my stash which are fast becoming scraps....oh dear!!

I need to add a little something but at the moment, I have a mind block. What do you think??
Maybe a fence to all depth or a few trees or bushes.....hummmmmm
 If you'd like a go at this, below is my design. You are welcome to it. 
It's not in PDF (sorry about that). Just click on the photo, then right click, copy then you can paste it onto your clipboard....I think that's right.
You can then resize it to your liking.
I numbered the important parts, as I saw them but you can do whatever you're most comfortable with. The numbers help me keep up with where I am.

Now for the
big announcement
for the April Showers Mug Rug Hop.
My day was this past Friday. I had so much fun visiting each "hopper" and responding to bloggers.
April Showers is still going on so please, do not miss seeing what all the talented bloggers are making. LINK here!

One more thing before I announce the give away winners.............

I wasn't able to connect with Nellie last week to answer her question. My email would not allow me to go there. But to answer her question about which "font" I used for my Spring wording.....I opened my "Word" document maker, scanned all the fonts and chose one that suited my taste. This document will allow you to enlarge the wording once you type in the word up to 72 "whatevers" (sorry, I'm not good with sizing info). I hope that helps. If anyone knows Nellie, please pass this info to her. Thanks, in advance!!

Finally...... here are the winners of the give away and a little more.......

The curvy umbrella  with loads of squares, a book and others goods goes to......

A local friend told me to get my butt on over here---I had won a pattern during the blog hop! Wow, thanks, Rhonda! It looks lovely from the photo. My email should be linked with my google profile but try qltcrzy1 (at) gmail (dot) com I prefer not to put my snail mail here but I don't think that is what you wanted anyway, LOL

You are really on a roll with the mug rugs. They are all so cute. You've done a really nice job with the barn block. The detail on it is great.
