I'm currently co-hosting an Artist Trading Block with HSG, and my partner quaggy just received the block I sent her. She told me that some of her favorite colors are red and turquoise (love!), and that she collected vintage games. I went through my stash and found as many fun game pieces as I could, to use in her block. Here's what I came up with:


I've had these mini alphabet bottlecaps for ages. I'm so glad I finally found the perfect use for them! The top finial is a gamepiece resting on a domino. The "r" on the gear is her initial.


I'm so glad HSG suggested this swap. I love working with little blocks of wood, and there are certainly more of these in my future.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Super awesome block, racky! The colours are splendid and I am especially in love with the topper.
