History is in the books :-)

Stitching stuff first... at last, one of the packages I sent out that seem to be lost somewhere in the vast world of the postal service did arrive. Jean has let me know that my birthday parcel for her has arrived safely in Singapore. The stitched portion of my gift is below. Now I am waiting for packages to arrive to Tannia in Australia, Janaina in Brazil and Katrina in New Zealand... that is a lot to wait on, and two of them have been in the post for quite some time now... I am also waiting for one from Malaysia to arrive, and it has been in the post for about six weeks. Hopefully the Christmas postal delays will clear up soon.

What a stunning little scissor fob. It is so delicate and pretty

That fob is a stunner ... but then again, we shouldn't expect anything else from you! :D Hope the rest of your post turns up at its destinations soon ... that's the only problem with posting at Christmastime, the backlog of parcels being delivered!

Watched the game! They had me worried there for a moment! Go Pats! My BIL's favorite team of all time! Nice fob!

Watched the game. At one point I was not sure that they were going to pull it off. That pass to Randy Moss was awesome. At that point, I knew they were going to win.

Have been a Patriots fan since Steve Grogan played for them. He played at my alma mater-- Kansas State.

I had the mail backlog. A package from me to the UK is also taking a very long time to arrive. By the way the scissorfob is beautifull.

Another gorgeous scissor for. Lucky is the recipient. I want to say how much I have enjoyed reading your blog this year. Many happy wishes to you for the new year.

Sue said...

Oh I know!!! I almost chewed my nails off the first half of the game...I love those guys!!!!!
Your fob is very pretty.
Happy New Year!

Another cute little scissor fob!

I watched the last quarter of the game - we were out for dinner earlier, so I missed that.

What bugs me is that the critics are now saying that the 16/0 is meaningless unless they go all the way. All year, the comparison has been with the Dolphins being undefeated during the regular season - now they are pulling in the playoffs.

I've no doubt they can go all the way, but the regular season thing is still an amazing accomplishment!

Love the little fob! Those petite examplarery's are so cute.

Love the fob.

I was waiting a delivery from the US to the UK - it was mailed on Dec 13 - arrived yesterday (29) - usually takes 5-7 days. Still it arrived in the end.

Lovely Fob. I'm glad some of the items are starting to arrive places, it would be so hard to have things stuck in the mail and not be sure if they are just delayed or lost. As you mentioned, hopefully the Christmas increase will be through soon and the delivery times can get a little more normal and predictible.

That's a wonderful fob!

Hi Carol -- glad to hear that the Patriots won! The MN Wild won too, but the Gophers lost.

I hope all these mail problems get sorted out soon!

Always enjoy seeing your stitching updates!

Beautiful fob Carol:)

You have been busy since I last visited! I love your new start ( Quaker Christmas) and will be following it with an eagle eye:)

Beautiful scissor fob Carol. I understand your postal woes. I sent a package to my granddaughter in early December and it has still not arrived. I am wondering if it is lost too

tkdchick said...

Another lovely little fob Carol!

Von said...

All your scissor fobs are beautifully perfect, Carol! Crossing my fingers in hopes that all the packages in the mails arrive safely at their destination - soon!

Deborah/LavenderRose said...

Carol, I just adore this fob. Have to get my stuff out and make myself one!! I love it to bits! Can you believe our Pats??!! I was in Boston watching them last week...just incredible...
Hugs,
Deb

Tannia said...

More gorgeous stitching from you Carol :) The fobs you create are always lovely.

I had a parcel arrive Christmas Eve that was posted from Canada on the 31st October!!! I am sure yours will show up soon and I will be sure to let you know when it does.

Many blessings to you and Mike for 2008 xxx
