  11. One more day with mug rugs and so many beautiful, cute and lovely.

  12. Great choices for today. I love that Dresden Plate and the egg cup with the chicken is too cute.

  13. Smiling---well worth waiting for that last post to come up! Who know that such fun could be put on an itty bitty quilt-let? I have to do a mini for a guild auction at some point and believe me, I can use the inspiration these are providing!

    I still don't have an account I can leave a comment with, but I will say this--I don't envy you having to pick the top two or three every day. Yes, some stand out more than others, but often for different reasons, but on other days they are all top contenders. You do a good job and I look forward to the rest of the hop.
