Dawn is Back Again


Ah, finally - a chance to work on Dawn again! Here she is... growing :-)

There is a wonderful new freebie over at Blue Ribbon Designs! A Christmas ornament! If you have not already seen it, please check it out!

I just heard from Sue that she has received my birthday gift for her - the USPS gets kudos for getting this one out to her quickly - even before her birthday! Yes, I did another from Nature's Alphabet - who's surprised? Some of the letters in that design are just so perfect for fobs, but others, not so much so... J for Juniper - nope!

What a scorcher it is right now - I love it!!! And, Hideki Okajima, Red Sox pitcher, is going to the All Star Game next week! True confessions time - I spent a whole lot of time yesterday and today pounding the online voting to help to get him in! LOL!!

Stitched on today: Dawn, Fairy Spirit of Grace

Thanks for the freebie link! Dawn is coming along nicely. I think everyone spent the past few days voting for Okajima. If I head correctly yesterday he got in with over 4 million votes.

Thanks for the link to that Ornament design, is lovely, and might well be my next Stitch-a-long one. I love those fobs they are really pretty. Dawm is coming along weel too.

Wish we could just have some dry weather here in the UK. We're getting nothing but rain, very dismal!

Dawn is beautiful Carol. I love seeing your WIPs on her.

The fob for Sue is very pretty.

I printed off the new Blue Ribbon freebie the other day. Intend of stitching it in memory of my Mum as she was diabetic.

I did the same thing trying to get Shane Victorino on the All-Stars. Oh well, at least we got Hamels, Utley, and Rowand to represent the Phils. Better luck next year for my buddy Shane.

Hello, this is my first time leaving comment even though I have visited here many times before. I love your stitching and seeing your progress on your projects. I just had to comment today because I did the same thing trying to get Okajima in! My family thought I was crazy but I'm glad I did! I'm actually a Yankees fan, but I I root for any Japanese player even if he's a Red Sox;-) Your Dawn and fob are so pretty!
