PIF for Joanne

I heard from Joanne tonight that she received my PIF today. I am still enjoying making fobs with initials on them, and am now busily using Garden Alphabet by The Prairie Schooler to get the job done :-) I wonder which alphabet I will move on to next, having now used most of Elizabeth's Designs' Nature's Alphabet... hmmm....

PEACE last night, and Serenity tonight. I pulled this one back out - it has been a while since I last worked on it. Somehow it slipped to the bottom of my WIP drawer! Can't have that! Back to working on that border again tonight.

A friend of mine is looking for back issues of Quilt Sampler by Better Homes & Gardens. Does anyone have issues they would be willing to part with? I am sure she would love to chat with you about trading or paying for them. She is in Australia and is seeking issues going back to about 2004. She says she already has Fall/Winter 2007 and Fall/Winter 2006. If anyone can help, please let me know - we both would sure appreciate it! Thank you :-)

Abebooks.com has Fall/Winter 2004, F/W 2005 and Spring/Summer 2005. A lot of their book sellers will ship internationally.

Serenity is looking great--looks like a very time-consuming border!

Lovely fob as always Carol, and Serenity is coming along well.

Carol, your fobs are the perfect example of how stitched gifts and exchanges don't need to be big to be meaningful and impresive. The craftsmanship and finishing are so impressive, and you put thought into each and every one you make.

Wow Carol I'm guessing you've probably made about 40-50 fobs by now!

Your wip is looking great!

Beatrice said...
