Thank you Elizabeth!

I was just in my first swap ever! I had such a wonderful time.

The hostess and instigator of all the fun was the delightful author of Creative Breathing, Elizabeth. Those wishing to participate were to make one banner block for Elizabeth and she would make one in kind for them. We all had it easy, one block - Elizabeth made something like thirty plus!

Yesterday my darling block arrived, Elizabeth. I love it so!!! Thank you so much for letting me join in the fun and celebrate your blog-a-versary!

Please forgive me, I have purloined your photo of the block you made for me from your blog - I can't take a photo to save my life today it would appear and my scan was down right pathetic - half blurry, no matter what tricks I try. I must not have loaded up on the caffeine sufficiently. ;)

Thank you thank you thank you for my darling block! The details are so enchanting, the buttons and oh!, the glitter! so much fun!

And here's the full reveal of mine that I made for Elizabeth - I only have a rather sad scan of it. I also made a little envelope (oh geez! no, it wasn't huge like that - that's just a close up, thank heavens), with a note enclosed and attached it to the back of the block - to commemorate the occasion.


  1. Wasn't that a brilliant idea for a swap?! I loved it! Lindsey and I love our blocks from Elizabeth. She is such a talented crafter. I can't imagine how many blocks she must have. Your's is so cute, too! Twyla

  2. Hi Twyla!

    Yes! That was the best, so much fun! Elizabeth is so very talented and energetic!!! I can't imagine turning out so many blocks in so short a time. I salute you Elizabeth. :)

    Thank you for your kind words. I'm looking forward to seeing the block from you and Lindsey on Elizabeth's blog, Twyla!
