Saturday Update

I just noticed on my sidebar that my blogversary is in 19 days! Yeah for me. I will be posting about a giveaway on tomorrow some come by and check it out.

I finally feel like my muse is back after being so sick. I have been working on a few swaps and of course my RR's that I am in. I was just in a swap over at Swap For All  Seasons here:                              and the swap was entitled Something Old, Something New, Something Blue and Something Borrowed adding a vintage photo of a wedding couple. My swap partner was Michelle and this is what she sent to me
This is what I sent to MichelleThis is how I wrapped and mailed them out to her. I wrapped them all in lace which she can use in her projects in the future.
The Wedding Couple
Something Blue:I made this cute little treasure box for her:
 Something Borrowed: These earrings are borrowed and cannot be returned to the owner. Which was a lot of fun borrowing something that you know you are not going to return. They are clip as they are a little heavy for pierced so I hope Michelle likes them.
Something New: I fell in love with this paper weight so thought it would make a great something new.
Something Old: This is a vintage cut glass toothpick holder.
  Next is Arlene's RR block for the Hearts RR that I was in. This is the last block for me to work on. There was not much for me to do when it arrived  as all the seams had been worked and there was two patches left and an open section next to the heart with the couple inside that I added the peach roses to. Her block is so pretty and is now on its way home to her. Hope you like your finished block Arlene.
Block before my work:
Block after my work is added:
 I have other blocks I have that I am working on and will post pics of them sometime next week.

Remember to come back by tomorrow for the details of my blogversary giveaway.

Happy Stitching,
