A little progress...

My eyes are so tired tonight, so I quit early. I did spend a bit of time today starting a gift, and did manage to do most of the stitching on it. But once I started 18th Century Band Sampler, my eyes were giving me troubles. I managed to still get a bit done on it.

I heard that Veronica received her birthday gift from me today - she received it early. Her birthday is the 1st of February, but I posted it to her last weekend. I didn't know how long it would take to get to the UK - as luck would have it, it didn't take long at all. I used a freebie from Passione Ricamo for her fob, and am showing you the back of the fob too... I added a "V" for Veronica on the back using the beautiful alphabet that came with the freebie...

French Collection Fob

Passione Ricamo - freebie found here

32 ct Cream Lugana

DMC Color Variations floss #4210, Radiant Ruby

Stitched 1/10/07 - 1/11/07


And, here is the back - I added a fancy heart charm at the base of the ribbon to compliment the hearts on the front of the fob:

The Sampler is looking so pretty. I normally do not get into samplers, but this one is so pretty that it is tempting me. The fob is lovely too, I'm sure she'll enjoy using it.

What a lovely little fob, congrats on the finish. Make sure you have good light and magnification when things start getting to small. Your eyes are worth it.

Another gorgeous fob, Carol!!! I love the heart pattern; is that freebie still available?

Everytime I see progress on your Long Dog mystery sampler, I think I need to kit that project up and start immediately. Those colors are so lovely!
