The last tulip fobs!

These were all stitched and finished last April but it took a while before i sent it out and also quite long underway to the new owners. But glad to hear it has finally arrive to Suzanne and Jackie. The other one, i just hope it has been received haven't heard anything yet.


I took a few pictures when i assembled the fobs, hope it helps for anyone who wants to try it with beads. ((you can click on all pictures to enlarge if you want))




Recently i've joined a bookmark exchange on one of the yahoo group here in Holland. Both were now received so i can show the pics.


Took a few pictures of some of my potted plants scattered all around in the backyard. These were planted early April.


I needed to go out to get some summer plants but been too busy here sorting and packing. Now, hubby just called this afternoon that he will be home end of June for a couple of weeks and then off to sea again for a month. I wonder if we can manage to get most of the stuff out of the house and the needed arrangements for the contractor and all. The expected date for pulling down the house is August 15 and he hope to be back around the 12th. They are shortstaff so it continuosly changing over their working schedule and where are they going to be posted.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week. Thanks so much for visiting and all the lovely comments. I really appreciate them all!!

Great finishing on your lovely fobs Mylene, thanks for showing the putting together, i never thought of putting the loop all the way through the fob, the ribbon looks nice and neat at the bottom then, i might try this next time :-)

Love the pictures of your pots & tubs, very colourful!
I hope all goes well with the packing for the renovation, is your house being pulled down to start a new building?

Hi Mylene
I hope the new scissor fob owners are as delighted with their fobs as I was with mine. You are so kind.
Love the book marks too and your pretty flowers.
You have a busy summer ahead. Wish I could come and help you. It must be so hard with your husband away.

Love the fobs Mylene! They are so pretty. Thanks for the tutorial. It looks simple enough. I am going to give it a try.

Such pretty flowers - both the real ones and the stitched ones! :D

Edit said...

Mylene, your tulip fobs are so beautiful again! :) And your flowers... I love them. We have no flowers in the flat as it is too hot for them in the summer. Last year we tried but they did not survive :(

I hope you will be able to manage everything around the house on time and your husband will be back when the works start.

Best wishes, Edit
