Swaps and Blocks

I just finished up my first bee block of 2013.  Only 5 more to go!  I may go a little overboard with signing up for these things and also volunteering to make angel blocks.  This block is called “birch trees.”


It was fun to pick the scraps to create the tree trunks and I loved working with Connecting Threads solid in persimmon—it’s such a pretty color.

I love to swap charms too!  So before Christmas I signed up for the Low Volume Charm Swap and just got my fabric ready to mail out today.  It was a great activity for my 4 year old to help with.


All the prints are Dear Stella.  The butterflies are my favorite.

Working on a few projects right now before I fly off to the Happiest Place in the World to enjoy some time with my family.


  1. I like the block, Jamie. That colors is so pretty and eye catching.
