An Emblem of Love Update

It's Monday, so I worked on An Emblem of Love again. This sampler continues to move along pretty quickly :-)

I just saw in Jenn's blog that today she received the fabric she bought from me last week.... and in the package I tucked in a little fob that I had made for her. She was so down in recent days, and I wanted to give her a little "therapy fob" to remind her that her friends love her. (I finished it in the evening and it was raining out... so I could not get a good photo).

I Love You

Shepherd's Bush, 1999 freebie

I second Anne's emotion, you do have a beautiful big heart! :)

I also can't get over how many daylilies you have! Lol! I enjoy seeing them so much day.

Wow, Carol, that is a totally gorgeous fob and I bet it did wonders to raise Jenn's spirits! You are a WONDERFUL friend!!!

As for weight gain ... whew, after meeting you I find it nearly impossible to believe that you could gain weight or be slothful. Not being too hard on yourself, are you?

(((((hugs)))))

Bea said...

Carol, your scissor fobs are both lovely.
The Emblem of love is beautiful, I really fell in love with it and if you decide to sell your chart I'd like to purchase it!!!

Nicole said...

Hi Carol! Just wanted to let you know the linen arrived safe and sound on saturday :)

Great progress on Emblem of Love!

Sharon said...

Carol, that is another gorgeous fob! Got any tips for me? EOL is progressing great.

Sue said...

EoL is still one of my favorites, and "delicate" is still the word that best describes this piece. Bittersweet is the perfect fabric to have chosen for this.

Another fob-ulous gift! That was so thoughtful of you--- it's adorable.

Jenn said...

Thanks again for the FOB Carol it's beautiful! What you put on the back makes me smile when I look at it. :)

Michelle said...

EOL is looking so pretty. The more you stitch on it, the more I love it. Love the fob too, what a sweet thing to do for her...she probably really needed that pick me up.

That's such a lovely gift! I am sure Jenna was deeply touched by your thoughtfulness!

Emblem of Love is coming along nicely too!

I tried to leave a comment earlier, but Blogger wouldn't let me. It's 4 AM here (don't ask) and I'm hoping Blogger is a bit kinder now. I just wanted to say that, next to human beings and doggies, sloths are my favourite creatures on earth. Having said that, I don't believe for a minute that you are one. But I wish you luck with Dr. Atkins anyway.
Your fob for Jenn is lovely. You're a sweetie, Carol!
