Hi everyone, as I posted below my "   Blogversary "  coming up in July. I have decided to celebrate during the whole month of July. I will add something each week to the package until Friday July 30th on this post only, then I will draw a name for the prize. The items below is what I will be adding for this week. Each week I will add something to the pile. It may be stash enhancement or something else since not everyone who reads my blog is a stitcher/quilter. This way there is something for everyone.
 So far we have:
 1)A wonderful book on Stump work (I looked through the pages of this book and it is really nice if you do stump work) 
2)A great pattern book for a Baltimore Album styled quilt            
3)8 fat quarters of floral blooms                                                     4)Glass beads (red in celebration of the 4th of July)
5)Fat quarter of rose fabric from Donna Dewberry collection
6)Black lace and black lace collar
7)Bag of gathered and flat lace in assorted colors
8)3 oriental fabric fat quarters
9)lace from a wedding gown
10)white angel wings
11)2 rose lace motifs
12)green brocade fabric piece
13)multicolored brocade fabric fat quarter
14)blue butterflies
Now all you have to do is leave a comment on this post and that's it. If you want to tell people about it that's fine, but it is not required. Thank you to all my regular readers for stopping by and leaving comments on my blog. I really do appreciate you. Remember that you can leave a comment on this post only until July 30th and I will post the winner on Saturday July 31st.

Happy Stitching,

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,
