Scissor Fob Exchange From Andrea

Today I received the most lovely Scissor Fob Exchange from Andrea - this exchange was on the FGBB. Andrea stitch me the prettiest fob using a portion of a Lorri Birmingham needleroll design. (It would just so happen that I spent about 30 minutes on ebay earlier today scouting out Lorri Birmingham needleroll charts - the best ones were all bid on by two different bidders who apparently want everything LB right now, so I will have to wait). Andrea also sent me a chart from my wish list (yay!), some lovely finishing materials and a cute little journal that I can easily see myself using to list items I need at the LNS - it is perfect purse size! Thanks so much Andrea - you really spoiled me!!
Here is tonight's update of Paradigm Lost.....

And, I just found Lily sleeping so hard that she didn't even try to peek at me when I took her photo! This little baby, and her sister Anouk, will be five years old already a week from Friday!! Seems like just yesterday that we brought them home....

Stitched on today: Paradigm Lost

Pl is just lovely and coming along great!!! Lily is a darling, what a great shot of her snoozing. My hounds seem to be extra cute when they are napping also and not rousting about the house.

Take care,

Katrina in NZ said...

Hi Carol, I'm having a little catch up of your blog today - as always, you've got some beautiful stitching going on :)

Susan said...

What a lovely fob; Andrea did a beautiful job.

Your Paradigm Lost is stunning!

Jenna said...

Awww, Lily is so beautiful. I like the way that Andrea chose to finish the fob, instead of the needleroll styled fob. Very nice! And yes, LB kits are in very high demand because she retired. Let me know what you're interested in and I might be persuaded to part with some of my LB stash so that someone else can enjoy it. :)

Carla said...

Awww Lily is so cute!!!
You've received a wonderful exchange...the scissor fob is so pretty!!!!

Mel in Dubai said...

Wow, PL is looking wonderful!!

Lovely exchange goodies you've received there too, and such a cute kitty :)

Meari said...

Lily is adorable! The fob is really pretty. I bet the reason why LB stuff is being snagged up is because she's retired (or will be soon).

tkdchick said...

Wow I can't beleive it, you're reaching the bottom of PL!!! Its going to be done in no time!
