Fobs

The European postal carriers have been busy today - I heard that two different fobs that I had sent out reached their destinations safe and sound :-)

First, Hazel received the wee little birthday gift that I stitched up and sent off to her. It arrived a couple of days late, but this time I expected that as I was rushing to get it done last month. I am so glad that she likes it! Some may recognize this fob... I stitched the same one for Heather last year. I couldn't resist - I love the little bird and birdhouse on this design.

Also, Simone received a wee little fob that I stitched for her as well. Simone had sent me a pretty pillow ornament for the Crazy Exchange about a month or so ago. In return, I needed to stitch something for her. Knowing Simone's love of birds, I chose to use the Prairie Birds chart that Veronica recently gifted me with in an HoE Exchange. I figured I would stitch one of the birds over one for her to make a sweet little fob. I almost fell of my chair when halfway through the process I saw on SBEBB that Cathy had stitched an almost identical one for her for a bird themed exchange ;-) Luckily, Cathy had selected the chickadee block, and not the goldfinch block. I figured that mine was already half done, so I forged ahead. Simone seems to like it :-)

Good to know they both arrived safely, and now I am off to do more secret exchange stitching....

Stitched on today: Finished the rest of Spring Exchange for Myrna, and started the ABC Exchange

It's good to hear that the mail service is working better. your fobs are always beautiful, Carol. Your pinkeep for Barbara (in the previous post) is also very nice. I need to go to the Workbasket site and download that one!

Hope you have a relaxing evening!

What beautiful fobs. I love the little goldfinch. I think we all need to have a chat with our postal services. They are the bane of our existences.
