So I got home that night and made a little paper pieced travel coffee mug mug rug for the morning DJ. I knew his mug was orange with a black lid, so I tried to stick to that theme. I embroidered a little BH, too, as it's a Breakfast with Hector morning show/travel mug.
I quilted it in concentric diamonds echoing the embroidered piece. I really loved doing this, which bodes well for doing something similar on my Pezzy Pizazz quilt.
So the next morning, I stopped off at the radio station on my way to work and dropped in the mug rug. The hope was 1) to get a little air time to promote the shop and 2) to get a little coffee mug. I did get a bit of air time, which was super. I wish I could link you up to it, but for the life of me I can't get the radio station's website to load correctly. Doesn't matter. It was just a bit of fun...and great promotion for the shop. No mug, though.
Irish folks, would you tell me what radio stations you listen to? And at what times? It was so insanely easy to get a bit of air time here, I'd love to do the same with other stations hoping to advertise the shop a bit. Your help is totally appreciated.
