8th, 9th & 10th Squares (and a little redo)

Ahh, Saturday's... don'cha love em? I do... I slept til 9am this morning....ahhhhh... (couldn't have been because I was up until 3am last night completely sucked in to a movie on Lifetime, oh no.)
Due to a little snafoo with my sewing class last night I had time to stitch after all, yay! So here come squares 8, 9 and 10 for your viewing pleasure, as well as little revamping of square 5!

SQUARE 8
If you skate, you would be great, If you could make a figure eight. Place it on its side and it's a symbol meaning Infinity... ~ I love School House Rock, don't you? Eight has always been my favorite number, and it's also how many years I've been married to Sean. Fittingly, two little wedding rings are my 8th square.

SQUARE 9
"Bluebird of friendliness. Like guardian angels, it's always near. Make a little birdhouse in your soul."
I was a bluebird back when I was a little Camp Fire Kid. My mom was our group leader. And I LOVE They Might Be Giants. Seriously, Flood is one of those albums I'd take with me if I were stranded on a deserted island. Birdhouse In Your Soul is one of the best songs, ever. Period. You can not listen to it and not be happy. Try it, you'll see.

SQUARE 10
Just some simple stitches to fill in a little bit of space.

SQUARE 5, revisited...
I was not loving that swing (see previous post)... not even a little bit. The first thing I did when I sat down to stitch last night was snip out that swing and redo it. I'm much happier now. What do you girls think?

So here's where we're at so far...
I love this project! I'm so happy I went for it.

Have a great weekend chick-a-dees!

I am so lovin' your squares!! Your bluebird is so sweet-- I love the little rosie cheeks! I just posted my square #11... a bluebird. She doesn't have rosie cheeks though. Oh well, I'm lovin' her anyway. It's been so fun to see the various versions of the bluebirds in the project-- yours is one of my most favorites!

Hi Sweetie!

I think this is all so adorable!

I love your sweet little bluebird and the flowery dividers of his box are so pretty!
Your weddings rings and the tiny flower square are sooo pretty also, AND, I love your swing! The little flowers you added to the bottom of the tree are so cute!

The whole piece is just so charming, and I really like hearing about what each box represents. I just love it!

Keep up your great stitching...can't wait to see more!
