Another Gift to Share

Thank you all for the sweet comments on the fob I made for Von's birthday... and for the other recent gifts I have stitched. You make me feel so good :-) I am going to spend tonight stitching another gift, so I will share with you the one that Joanie received from me today. Her birthday is tomorrow. I know that Joanie likes samplers, so I went with this little fob, which is a bit of a puzzle.... the front of the fob is J for Joanie, and the back is L for her last name.... well, the J is easy to read, but it is a bit of a trick to decipher the L's on the back :-) I am glad that Joanie likes this:

Stitched 6/16/07 - 6/17/07


We had a cookout at our house today - some of Mike's family, some of mine, and a friend.... but... neither of us remembered to take photos - again! Sorry!!! This was just meant to be a summer cookout, but many also brought gifts for Mike's birthday - awwww :-)

Oh, if you have not already seen this, Becky has started up a fun new blog called The World's Largest Collection of Smalls. I think this is a great idea - Becky is shooting for a record here - would love to have one place where we can all show photos of the many smalls we like to stitch up. Let's try to get the biggest collection ever on the internet! To join is easy - click on the link I just provided and Becky gives you the instructions at the top of the blog - I hope you join us!!!

OK, I am off now to finish a gift I just started, and to watch the Red Sox game... I did manage to finish the Summer Quaker exchange last night - what a busy month! I hope to get back to my rotation soon :-)


Stitched on today: Stitched a gift - nope, stitched it, but ruined it with a finishing boo boo :-( Will restitch it tomorrow...sigh

Another lovely fob!

Both fob's look great Carol. Thanks for the info on my Lilys. I planted a Lily in another part of the yard and it started to grow but, something ate all the leaves and the flower off it before it could start to bloom. I'll have to move it with the others for next year.

Yesterday was a perfect day for a BBQ. I'm glad you all had a good time.

Hi Carol. Sorry to read you've not been feeling too good. I hope you're better now.

You stitch some lovely gifts. I like the puzzle one even though I just cannot see the J or the L. My eyes must be so bad!

Another lovely fob! I'm constantly surprised at how many of these you get done with all the other stitching you finish as well. Glad you had fun at the cookout.

You are taunting me with those Glory Gingher's aren't you?! LOL!!!!
Just kidding...Joanies fob is spectacular as always Carol :)
I understand about the rotation...I was just getting into a good one myself (at least one day a week) when the crush came down on me too :)

Hi Carol - thanks for dropping by :-) I've rectified the problem with the 'Cat Knot' photo, so you should be able to see it now. I love both the fobs - a marvellous job as usual. I'm glad to hear you had such a good time at the cookout - those sort of moments are the best! x

Hello Carol, all your recent gifts are so nice and sweet; I can't believe how quickly you finish them! And your wips are all looking fantastic. I think Vineyard is my favorite- it has been so fun to see this beautiful project take shape.

Dawn said...

Great job, Carol! Love the color:)

Hi Carol, you certainly have been a busy wee stitcher - your stitched fobs are so sweet, Queen of the fobs :)

What a clever fob design, Carol! Joanie is sure to be using it for years to come. :)

Mike's birthday cookout sounds like a terrific time for everyone! Hope this is a great year for him!
