Mug Rugs and KG Graduation!

To start with, here is the mug rug that I sent to my partner Jan in Australia!  I forgot to take a picture of the entire package so I took a picture of what she posted on Flickr!  If you zoom in, you may be able to read what she wrote.  Very sweet.  Bottom line - she loved her package!  Yay!

When my kids were little and until now, none of my husband's family comes to any of their events.  I decided that would not be the case for my BIL's kids.  This little guy had his graduation from kindergarten and he is so freakin' adorable that Ali and I went.  Amal was studying for her final exams so she couldn't make it.  He is singing something in Arabic here.  That is the Omani flag around his neck.

Here is my BIL, SIL and the three kids.

Here are Ali and I with the three kids.

Finally for this short post, I received MY Mug Rug from Germany!  Yay!  My partner made the coolest shape and she used one of my favorite designer's Sandi Henderson's Henna fabrics.  There are many colors and she also put in a cat.  She is NOT a cat person!  Thank you so much Julia!  She sent a chocolate bar from Germany, a postcard with the sweetest letter and four pieces of fabric that are darling!  I just love this!  Now I have two from the US; one I made; and one from Germany!

I promise to post Amal playing the Oud soon!  Thanks for stopping by!

Everybody is posting about chocolate today... LOL! I've been having a MAJOR chocolate craving. Been tempted to make brownies just so I can lick the bowl (hahahahaahaha!).

Love the fabrics of your Germany mug...

KG is a cutie pie!
