Barnabee Update

It's Friday - Barnabee's Quest night. I love the rabbit that I got to stitch tonight. Not sure about the ants though - how many times does a stitcher stitch ants in her/his lifetime, right? These might be my first :-) Anyhow, almost through Part II now.

I heard from Nicki today that she has received and opened up my little birthday gift for her - I am so glad that you like it Nicki, because I really had fun stitching this for you. I stitched it a lot at work, and many of my clients really enjoyed commenting on this one:
Too Tiny Too Fob
The Drawn Thread
40 ct lambswool linen
DMC floss
Stitched 2/19/07 - 2/23/07

Lucky girl Nicki! That's a beautiful fob, Carol.
Love the 'stitched for you' detail as well! Very sweet.

Kath said...

Yet another beautiful fob Carol. Nicki is one lucky girl. Never thought of making it into a fob either!!! Time I got back to thinking outside the square again.

Hazel said...

This is just beautiful. I want to learn to finish as neatly as that! I have added you to my blog if you don't mind.

Great progress on Barnabee Carol! I think all the critters are cute, even the ants ;)

Lovely fob for Nicki too - I was just admiring it on her blog. Enjoy your weekend!

I love that fob! :-) Barnabee is looking great too.

I've stitched ants once too! On JDs Bug Collector - you're right though...how often do you stitch ants? hehe..

What a precious little fob!
AND when did you get all that done on BQ? Heaven's sakes alive, I can't get over it!

Jenn said...

What a pretty fob. You did another great job Carol! Your bunny looks cute and your right how often can you say you've stitched ants. :)

Andrea said...

A beautiful fob for Nicki. Barnabee just keeps growing and growing doesn't he!? Great progress.

Take care.

Barbara said...

Beautiful fob, Carol. Wow!

I've tried about half a dozen times to send you an email but it keeps getting blocked as spam (according to the notice I get).

Hope all is well!!

Carol, I always, always enjoy perusing your blog. You're such an inspiration! It's nice that you have clients who get to see and comment on your work. Can I be a client? LOL! Such a lovely, complex fob---lucky Nicki! AND I dearly LOVE BQ. Don't have that one, but I do have Lady Scarlet in my stash, kitted, I THINK. It's been there a long time ;-) I'm coveting the Just Nan LE Lady Scarlet's Secret Journey in the ladybug container. Mmmmmm.... lovely!

Kathy said...

What a lovely fob Carol. Aww Barnabees quest is cute, looking forward to seeing this one finished.

Hugs xxxx

Tannia said...

I don't think I've EVER stitched an ant Carol although JN has a few insects in her samplers from time to time - I think I've seen flies, bees, dragonflies, lady bugs of course, butterflies, so an ant is not that unusual I guess :)

You are excelling in the gift department - that fob is beautiful :)

hugs to all!

AnneS said...

Yet more scrummy fobs - the latest ones for Nicki and Judith are gorgeous as always ... and the needlebook for Jenn is awesome! Your stitching is always an inspiration! :D (Sorry I haven't been commenting for a while ... I have been sneaking a peak each day, though) Lovely photo of Angus winking too :D

Barb said...

The fob is beautiful. Your Barnaby's Quest piece is looking great so far. It looks like you are almost done. Great job on it.

Michelle said...

Barnabee is looking great. I thought the same thing about stitching the worms...how often does one stitch worms! I LOVE the fob you stitched for Nicki, it is gorgeous!

Lauren said...

Barnabee is looking great, and the fob is so cute! Hope your weekend is going well!

Barnaby looks so good, the little rabbit is adorable, and all the little bugs (ants included, LOL) look like they would be fun to do.

Keep going on Barnabee! You'll be done in no time. I think you're going to meet your deadline so that you can start another SAL. Your progress is so lovely. :) Beautiful scissors fob that you stitched for Nicki, as well. I bet she was over the moon!
