Not there yet...

I am so relieved that at long last my little birthday gift for Kathy has arrived safe and sound in Canada!! Her birthday was a few days ago, but the post just could not get this to her in time. Kathy is such a sweetie, and I really was getting a little nervous about this one!

Nature's Alphabet "K" Fob

Elizabeth's Designs

Silkweaver Belfast Solo Linen, DMC Floss


I went right back to working on An's Neighborhood Round Robin tonight - Mermaid Heaven is waiting for me, but this is a real priority right now. Not quite done yet... I did get the second monkey stitched. Melissa, I also noticed that the two monkeys appear to be different colors in the photo on the chart.... but after also thinking about it for a bit, I did end up stitching them both with DMC 3790, as charted. I used the two different browns on the steps, but you cannot even tell. In the chart photo, they are dramatically different. Go figure - LOL!!! I look forward to seeing what you decide to do with yours. Meanwhile, An, I hope this is on its way home to you by the end of the week!

Stitched on today: Seasonal Exchangers project, and Annemarie's Neighborhood Round Robin

What a sweet and adorable fob, its fantastic. I just love those monkies, you have to wonder if they're planning on TPing one of the trees in a neighboring block.

An's RR is looking gorgeous - I do love the monkeys :) Your Victorian Quaker sampler looks wonderful - I've just started the pinkeep - it's very very very tiny stitching! Look forward to your progress.

Another beautiful fob, well done! Doesn't mail to Canada seem to take an extraordinary amount of time? Those monkeys are just too darn cute!

It's so cute, and the monkeys add a perfect touch. You're so close to being done, I'll bet you will have it finished by this weekend.
