Big, Huge Motif...Done

Ah, did it - got through that huge heart motif near the bottom of the sampler tonight. And, took a peek at the one to the left of it that Jo is working on... Jo, that one doesn't look any less daunting to me - LOL! I am very excited - Dani and her friend Kathy will be starting up a Paradigm Lost SAL quite soon. I look forward to watching the progress on that one too!

I stumbled across a Shepherd's Bush freebie online today - and don't think I have ever seen it before.. have you? If not, here it is: Noel by Teri Lyn Richards - I cannot wait to stitch this up!

I heard from Shelleen today that she has received a little birthday gift that I sent for her - whew, what a relief. It did not have far to travel, and I was getting pretty concerned about it. It is safe and she says she likes it - also a whew! I just adore Brightneedle designs, and have wanted to stitch this little fob for a long, long time... then Shelleen's birthday started to come close, and I knew I had a good chance to stitch it for her :-) This is another of the freebies I stitched up last month for the Freebie Challenge as well.

Now I'm back blogging, I thought I'd go back to commenting as well. Your PL is a marvel. I don't know how you do it...
Love the fob. And that's a very neat way of finishing them, by the way. Is that a little charm I see at the back? Cute!

I've also wanted to stitch this BN freebie since 'forever' - yours looks great! What a sweet gift (and what a sweet sender!).

PL is really trucking along. Looks great! :)

PL is motoring along - I can't believe how quickly this one is growing (even though it probably doesn't actually feel like it!). Thanks heaps for the freebie link - I LOVE that one, and have it printed off myself now. Great new fob too - I bet Shelleen loves it :D There soon won't be a blogger in the stitching community who hasn't received a gift from you, you're a real sweetheart :D

How long have you been working on PL? I'm going to be starting St. Reatham and I want to use your progress on PL as a benchmark for me. :-) You work on it once a week, correct? Thanks for the freebie, I didn't have that one.

Vonna said...

Thanks for the freebie :)
Your fob to Shelleen is a sweetie :).
And I'm crowing for you because you got that huge motif done! Hurray!

Rita said...

Your works are always amazing, and inspiring. It is because of your blog that I fell in love with Long Dog samplers, I intend to buy one and do it for myself.
And thanks for that freebie!

PL is looking great!
Cute fob too!

Katrina said...

what a good feeling it must be to get another of the large motifs finished, its looking wonderful.

Isn't that a great SB freebie, Kath stitched this one for me in our ornament exchange one time.

Another cute fob Carol - you must have lots of fun hunting out designs for these :)

Carol still drooling over your Paragdim. Kathy and I have been watching your piece grow for awhile now... we keep talking it about it so we decided when she goes south next fall (she's a snowbird) we'll SAL it to keep each other in mind. I believe my friend Christin is going to join us too!

Another beautiful fob Carol I'm just amazed at how many gifts you've been making and how generous you've been this year!

Marjean said...

Carol, Keep your blog just the way it is! I love seeing all your stitching.
