These mug rugs seem like a great way to teach quilting to beginners. You can experiment with fabrics, patterns and techniques and then have sweet mug rugs to use for  tea parties.

My mother was told she had six months to live when she was pregnant, I witnessed my college room mate leave behind three young children when she died of cancer and I prayed and grieved for my sweet friend’s families when, in a moment, two husbands were left without their wives and 17 children were left without mothers when a tree fell on a van in Southwest Virginia  and yet I still forget. Please read, this good and needful reminder of Why Every Moment Matters When You’re a Mom.

Lea Ann Garfias shares Calm in a Storm: How to Stay Peaceful While Childrearing at Ladies Against Feminism.

I’d like post these link sharing posts semi-regularly and would love a catchy name (I think weekend links is a little lame). What are your suggestions?
