My Swap to Patti

I promised that as soon as I heard Patti received her swap package I would post the pictures of what I made for her. I tell you, this was so much fun and I was quite happy with how it turned out. I hope Patti will enjoy it.




















The pillow was my something new. The vintage gloves were something old. Something "borrowed" was a vintage doilie, and something blue was a vintage brooch. The wedding picture is of my Grandparents double wedding in 1918.


I had not sewn in about 8 years! But I figured it out again, and I may have to make a pillow for me!!

The pillow turned out great, Ceekay! I'm guessing Patti was screaming with delight when she opened her gift!!! I know I would have been!

Thanks for your sweet comment on our anniversary post...I DO hope you show the signs that were on your car from your wedding day!!

Have a great evening! L, Dana

Bees are doing great! Hoping we will honey this year from the 2 hives we have had since last year!

Just finished a Rodeo Bible Camp (helping cook)- so beat but it was a great time and 6 new followers of Christ!! Finished up at 4p.m and came home to our Field Director who is spending night-- He and Bill are off gallivanting while I try to get my breath!!
