Finally working the last corner now

I guess I was looking for every excuse in the book today to avoid working on Mystery IX yet again. So, I started and finished an entire gift today.... then got around to working on Part 11. I am glad I did, as I finished the third corner and have now made a dent in the final corner - with a week left to the month.

I heard from Bea today, alerting me that my gift to her also has made its trans-Atlantic voyage successfuly, and I grabbed her photo of it from her blog (the photo I took before posting it off was very overexposed and I was hoping I would not have to use it - thanks Bea, for a better photo!). I kept the construction simple on this one as it is a Prairie Schooler Design... there is a small primitive silver charm with a heart on it attached at the back of the fob's ribbon - you can sort of see it leaning against the scissor package. I wanted to give it a little something. I am really glad she has this now, as I totally missed her birthday back in September.

Stitched 11/14/06 - 11/15/06


I hit WalMart today - had to, needed shampoo and a condolence card for my FIL who lost his dog recently - and they had a big DVD sale - picked up The Omen for half price.

Stitched on today: Started and finished a gift, and Mystery IX

Love your cute fobs you've been making - this one is no exception. M9 and Women of the Mayflower both look fantastic. You are almost there with M9!

What an adorable fob - and a PS design I hadn't seen before. Glad it made it safely to its destination, and I'm sure it'll be cherished. :)

You're a crazy girl, going out on Black Friday. Glad you survived. :) I hope that you will enjoy the next part of Mystery IX a bit more, so it doesn't seem like such a chore. It is such a beautiful piece; I think you'll be happy with it in the end. Beautiful fob for Bea, as well. I'm glad that it arrived safely and I'm sure she loves it.
