"Love" scissor fob!

"Love" scissor fob
Plum Pudding NeedleArt design
32ct linen
DMC threads


The night before hubby leave for work, that was tuesday evening, we decided i will drive him to where the ship is anchored. Because there wasn't much change with the weather and the roads, in some areas are quite dangerous-slippery i am not comfortable to drive back alone. But if he'll take the public transport, he has two heavy baggages, first to the ferry, then take the bus to the other side and then to the train, then take a taxi to bring him to the harbour. It is not efficient at all and it is freezing outside. I did drove the car last monday though just here on the island as it is my very first time in this kind of weather, still some roads with snow especially in the villages but the main roads are quite clear. It went fine so that is why i offered to bring him back. It's more than an hour drive after the ferry. I am really glad when i got back home safely in the afternoon.
Came to check in mails and saw this freebie posted at one of the yahoo groups. Made a copy and settled myself on the couch and stitched and stitched...I thought to go out to go and look for Chris as they went skating after school but my stomach aches, probably because i had skipped breakfast and just had lunch at 2pm.
Finished the heart freebie too. I had used one of the hand dyed threads of Crescent colours and love it. I hope Tinna will like the block too when she get it.

I have seen a couple of small winter designs that i like to start but thought to work on Spring ones instead. So i went in search fo an appropriate design and found this one. I started this last year, what you see on the picture was stitched early last year and set aside...& and forgotten! I hope to work on it soon. Wonder if i can finish it in time for Spring...?
I would like to say a big THANK YOU to all who come and visit my blog. All your comment are very special to me.

Hello Mylene, Your scissor fob is perfect. I am so glad you arrived home safely,sounds very nerve racking driving in those conditions. Happy stitching.

saras said...

Nita said...

I love your finishes, Mylene. They are very pretty!

Siobhan said...

Both are lovely, Mylene. Congratulations!

Brigitte said...

Such a pretty little freebie. And so beautifully finished.
I hate driving on slippery roads but have to do it to get to work and back home. I'm very glad that our snow ploughs are so effective. They often start to clear the streets in the midst of the night to garantee good road conditions when people drive to work. Of course this is not always possible.
Good to read that you came back safely.

Hi Mylene! Thanks for the gorgeous Christmas card! (Sorry to be so late in saying thank you - having a hard time getting on a computer around here). Wishing you a wonderful 2010!!

Karan said...

Glad you had a safe journey Mylene. Thankfully the worst of the snow & ice has cleared due to all the rain we are now having.
Lovely little finish & I really like your PS piece - looking forward to seeing your WIP pics. :0)
