Cozy Cuddle Rug!


Happy July 4 to all my friends in the USA - it has been lots of fun being in Blogland with you and forming new friendships! I have had four wonderful visits to your country - have thoroughly enjoyed every one of them and have lots and lots of very happy memories!
A finish, at last - cute and cuddly and will get better with time!
I did a little shopping yesterday - have never really been drawn to the colour Purple - have never disliked it, but for some strange reason have just not worked with it a great deal! Have a newly found liking for it - perhaps stimulated by dear friend Terri at purple and paisley - how could one not like purple now! That's a little bag I bought for a Christmas in July stocking-filler gift and also the box and tissue paper for another gift.
Must flit away - things to do - happy weekend!

Cute quilt. Love the fabrics in it. I live in Violet Township, school colors here are purple and white and purple and black, we have a violet festival each year...yeah, we're big on purple here. Luckily, I like purple!
Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for the 4th of July shout out!

I don't find a lot of purple fabrics. I would purchase some if I found some I liked.

Joy said...

I was mad about purple in my teens then went right off it ...... now I just love it with green (I never used to like green at all!!!) and have made a couple of quilts in this colourway. Funny isn't it how our tastes change.
Hugs,
Joy :o)

Thank you for the good wishes for our special holiday. I would love to visit your country one of these days and I sure enjoy learning about it from your blogs.
Your cuddle quilt is so soft and cuddly and girlie.

The quilt does look very cozy. Purple has never been one of my favorites either, except when I see it in a Halloween quilt. Isn't that strange?

Thank you for your 4th of July wishes, your quilt looks very cozy and you are right the more it is used and loved, the more cozy it will get. Happy weekend!

Your little quilt is adorable!! We're spending a quiet 4th at home with a little doggie who is terrified of fireworks!! We have to tranquilize the poor thing!!

Your rug looks so cute and comfy! I feel like that would be perfect to cuddle when I watch a movie or something. I too find purple to be difficult to deal with, but the purse you got is really cute!!!

Mimi said...

Love the quilt.

Your whole blog is great!

What a cute quilt - it looks so cozy! I can identify with you about the color purple. It was only recently that I realised my stash lacked the color purple. I have since tried to use it more often.
