Back to the garden!

Back to Mystery IX tonight :-) Not a ton of progress, harder to stitch with company here, but still moving along...

And, I got an email from Karen today, letting me know she has received her birthday gift... this one took the very slow plane to the UK! But, since I mailed it two weeks before her birthday, it arrived in time... I posted on 12/4 and her birthday is 12/18.... this time, I did not let the slow post to the UK mess anything up. I chose this design, which I would love to stitch for several of my blogging pals, because Karen is one of the first stitchers I met while blogging... along with Isabelle, Katrina, Dani, Becky, Shelleen, Karen V, Jo, Bea, Nikki... I know I am missing some of the older blogging pals here... but you are all special to me! Thanks for being here. Having you lovely friends is so important to me - thanks for your kindness and support! Anyhow, here is what I made for Karen...

Yet another beautiful job - and gorgeous sentiments, you're such a sweetheart :D I tried to reply to you email earlier, but it came back (Comcast are the BEST boomerangs ever! LOL) ... looks like you got your Google account sorted out - hope it works OK :D

Hi Carol

I absolutely adore my fob - it's gorgeous. You take a great photo but it still doesn't do the fob the justice it deserves. The colours are beautiful and the beads and tassle really sparkle, and it has such a cute little charm on the back with over one initials for both Carol and I. I love it Carol, thank you so much :o)

What an exquisite fob! Yet another! Wow... Thank you for the sweet words too... I discovered your blog around Christmas, two years ago. Can't believe it's been two years already! :D You're definitely one of my oldest (in time, not in age LOL) and dearest blogging acquaintances :)
