What I Have Been Up To

Well the title of this should be something else I guess since I have not been doing a whole lot. I have been having some health issues so not much sewing, quilting going on. I did finally receive my Tussie Mussie swap box on today. Here is the one I sent my partner and here is what she sent to me:





And this is what was inside........a cute little pin cushion made like a teacup and some nail polish with accessories.
Thank you Ruth for the lovely items that you sent. The basket is very pretty and looks vintage-ish from the Victorian era. The next thing is this lovely swan planter that I found while out thrifting with my brothers girlfriend.
This swan is large and I am trying to find a 24"   bottle brush sisal tree to put in the back. I am hoping to find one soon so I can embellish it with vintage jewelry and all things sparkly. Last but not least I have pulled my fabric for Esther's new BOM  "   In The Pink"
Hopefully I can get the first set of blocks cut out soon and start on this wonderful quilt. I am progressing on the blue quilt but am keeping it a secret so my mom does not see it before it is ready. I will post pics of the progress soon. 


Happy Stitching,
Wendy

Hello Wendy,
WOW what lovelies you have posted! I love the swan.

And congrats on your win, too. You really hit the jackpot on this one. If those threads don't inspire, I don't know what would.

I see your cute little shoe pincushion a few posts down. I have one of those sitting on my work table that I made a year (or so) ago. Mine is in green of course. LOL.

Thanks for visiting my blog, for your words of encouragement, and for your prayers. They are much appreciated!
