a bit of this, a bit of that

Pink Saturday Pretties

Happy Bright Pink Saturday Everyone!!

The sun has been shining all week,

but today is a different story!

You can stay inside

create, cook, clean, organize

and create some more

and not miss any of the wonderful weather outside
because...it's raining
Take a peak at Beverly from 'How Sweet the Sound' today,
I know you will find some Pinks
that will put a big smile on your face
regardless of the weather

The Apple Blossoms are all in full bloom
and when you walk by...the fragrance just fills you up

was hosting a fun Spring swap called
By the Dozen Egg Exchange
We were supposed to decorate an egg carton
and fill it with Spring goodies
....sounded like a ton of fun

My swap partner Carol from Sugar Hill Studio
decided to send me a basket
of Spring goodies to die for

Chock full of Spring goodness
...not to mention tons of candy and chocolate




each box was filled with various candies,
glitter and did I mention chocolate

I decorated my egg carton with Spring colors

and it really was so much fun

I placed the colored eggs inside
and filled them with goodies
.....of course I forgot to take pix
and remembered after I shipped it off.

This was a really great swap and I thank you Carol for being my swap partner and making my sweet tooth very very happy. I would also like to thank Christine for coming up with this creative idea!! Take a visit to Christine's and see all of the other creative Egg Exchange ideas


Back at the end of February Amy from Insire Co. had the idea to have a stitchalong for her birthday. Beginning March 1, you were to make an inch square stitchy everyday for a pre-determined number of days.

Oh the possibilities

This is what it looks like today....I just have to think of a clever way to display this now....any suggestions. Loved this...it was so much fun and you could look forward to just a little bit of creativity to spark you for other projects.

I hope you try something creative


out of the box today!!

Whatever you choose to do....have tons of fun!!

  4. Nerina, your squares are beautiful!!! I love it! Hmmmm, I'm trying to think outside the box as to how you could display it. How about a pillow?

    Such wonderful goodies you received from your swap partner!! FUN!!!

  5. Your stitching sampler is fabulous. It would be fun to add various fabrics as borders and make this into a cute pillow for your bed or sofa. Love seeing what you came up with for each square. Lovely piece!
