PS flatfold & taking a break from blogging!

I've finished this one before hubby came home and decided to finish it off into a flatfold but can't find the right cord - of what i have - to attach for the sides, will have to look at the shop one of these days.
((you can click on all pictures to enlarge))
This one got me worried as it took a while to arrive, so glad to hear it has finally reached Nita earlier this week..

....and the winner of the fob giveaway is....Christine. As you can see i added two more, the only stitching i did since hubby got home last tuesday afternoon. These goes to....Deb and Carolyn!. Congratulations ladies! Please send your address info and they will be send off next week.

I'm taking a break from blogging- visiting and commenting- for a couple of weeks. Although i do try to visit and leave comments if i can but i can't promise... This coming weekend we are out attending birthdays, visiting friends and other activities of the children. And then hopefully next week i will start to sort out pictures(lots, i think i am three years behind now) to the respective albums. I have album for Grace, Chris, for me and hubby and album for my parents in Asia-this if we don't send it we take it with us when we go for a visit. Now, this is one of my problem aside from my stitching stash, all the albums to be pack later for the renovations. I really hope they will be safe.

Thank you all so much for stopping by. Happy weekend to all!!!

Mylene, such a great idea to do the PS as a flatfold...I've done smaller items but you've inspired me to do the samplers that will be out for a short time into them also.
Enjoy your family time.

Deb said...

Mylene, I love the idea of that flatfold for the PS pieces! You did a wonderful job finishing it off. That's a great way of having them to display during the different times of the year! I hope that you can find the perfect cording soon.

And I can't believe that I won one of your beautiful fobs!!! I will get my mail information out to you. I'm so excited because I have a lot of scissors and barely own any fobs!

I'll miss your blogging for the next couple of weeks, but have a wonderful time spending it with you husband, friends and family!! Hopefully you'll be able to pop in a post a couple pictures here and there!

Mylene, your flatfold is beautiful! I love it very much!! And Prairie Schooler became a big love for me recently :) The scissor fobs with the alphabet, I can´t say enough times how beautiful they are. Whenever I look at mine I must smile because it is so beautiful! The ones with Sylvia´s design are also adorable.

Alice said...

Your PS sampler is just beautiful. I am also stitching blue birds on my present project. The ladybug fobs are just so cute. I have always loved ladybugs but in summer they are becoming more and more rare which is really sad. It shows that something is very wrong in the enviroment.
