A little birthday gift for Karen

I sent a birthday package a while back to my friend Karen - I figure she has received it by now, although I cannot seem to reach her through any of my email accounts lately. I realized I have stitch a great many items for her, but had not yet stitched her an initial fob. So, I did this year. I sent her other treats, but here is the fob:
Farmer's Alphabet "K" Fob
Prairie Schooler
32 ct Antique Ivory Belfast Linen, DMC Floss

I do hope Karen did receive her package and that all is well for her. I am sure I will hear from her at some point ;-)

SBBC Gift for Rachel

I heard from Rachel today that she has received my birthday parcel. I was her partner for this year in the SBBC (Stitching Bloggers Birthday Club). I chose to stitch a scissor pocket for her and to send her matching scissors to go with it - I changed the colors up as I did not have the called for fibers:

Bianca Scissor Pocket
The Cat's Whiskers Design Studio
32 ct White Belfast Linen, Caron Waterlilies in Hyacinth and Moss

...And the rest of her goodies. Glad you like it Rachel - I had great fun making it for you!!

My DH still has plenty 4" Sarah, Freedom and Roberta Ginghers available - if interested, details are available in the posting below this one - and many, many thanks to the very many of you who have purchased already! We cannot thank you enough! If you can think of anything else he should carry in his online store, let me know!

HoE Woodland Exchange for Maria, and a gift for a friend

I read today in the HoE II blog that Maria has received the HoE Woodland Exchange that I sent to her. I had a lot of fun making this - it is a tiny mattress pincushion, using a portion of LHN's Woodland Sampling chart...
