Squishy Packages

Being a lady of, well, a certain age, I can remember a Hawaiian entertainer named Don Ho, crooning a song that began: “Tiny bubbles in the wine.  Make me happy, make me feel fine.”  Those lyrics modified to “Squishy packages in the mail….” have been running through my head today.  Two squishy packages landed in my mail box this week to brighten these hot dreary days here in Texas. 

First to arrive was a giveaway from Debbie at Stitchin' Therapy.  She was clearing out her sewing room and offered up these two patterns, one for a bag, and the other for a needle case.  I have been looking for a needle case pattern to make for my own use as well as to give as gifts, so I was very happy to receive this.

Then this package from Mary, my mug rug swap partner, arrived yesterday.  Her watermelon mug rug and fat quarter are just too cute!  The mug rug I made for her is on its way.  When I know she has received it, I’ll post a picture of it.
