Thank you US Post!

I am so distracted today - I started another gift earlier today (wow, there really are a lot of stitching blogger birthdays in November and December!), and I am really enjoying working on the gift. But I put it aside to devote my attention to Mystery IX again. Well, I got more done on the corner, but I need to get a bit more dedicated to it within the next week... December is creeping up. (Blogger is acting up, so I used Photobucket to post the photos today)

I heard from Karen today that she received a little gift I had made for her - a RAK this time around, as she is very, very good to me! The US Post got this to her in only 9 days! I got her all interested in the Boston Red Sox in 2004.... she loves sports as I do! Sadly, her favorite player, Keith Foulke, is not likely to be returning to the Red Sox in 2007... The photo is poor, but if you click to her blog, you get to see a much better photo! There is a tiny silver heart charm on the back of the fob - along with our initials - because I wanted to girlie it up a little bit - I think you can see a hint of that charm in her photo -

What a cool gift!!! I've never seen a Red Sox pattern - and how clever to use it for a fob! :)

Your Mystery looks great, too.
