...all these fobs has been sent out today!


Been working on this small designs on and off in between other projects or while watching movies with the kids. I just hope all the reciever will like them.
((you can click on all pictures to enlarge if you want))
Here's my x'mas monthly ornament SAL for July!

Visited the Prairie Schooler site yesterday and saw this freebie, printed and stitched it right away. Hubby isn't home so i can stay up and stitch the night away...not really i finished it around 1:30am.

It's a pretty quick stitch and with this kind of finishing is an easy one too.

I've lost about 5 rr's a few years ago so i decided not to join anymore but when one of the yahoo group had asked if i can join her round last year i couldn't say no, atleast with her group everything went well in the past. Now, all pieces were back to the respected owners, just received mine yesterday.

I've chosen a summer theme which was from one of the magazine, The World of Cross Stitching.
I haven't had much time to stitch my block before sending out last year which was the one on the middle. Hope to work on it soon.

Thank you all so much for visiting and leaving such lovely comments! I really really appreciate them all. I hope you all are enjoying the summer!

Can't wait to see what all your fobs look like. And the snowman ornament is just adorable. And the RR piece looks lovely as well.

You sure were quick with that PS snowman. You stayed up way past my bedtime! That's a cute finish.

So great that you got an RR back. They really work best when you know the participants well, Looking forward to seeing it when you get the center stitched. It's a lovely design.

Mylene, the fobs are darling! That is a lot of work.

I love the PS Ornament. PS is one of my favorite designers. Interesting enough, my two finishes so far this year are PS designs..LOL

Your RR is gorgeous! I am happy you got it back; that is why I stopped them; I lost a couple too sending them around the world!

Sunshine said...

Love the RR design. I look foward to seeing your finish.

Hi Mylene
Seeing all your beautiful stitching today has made me want to start something new myself. Tomorrow we finish work and school for the summer so hopefully I will have time for a little stitching.

Lovely work Mylene - wow you are fast!! Lovely RR - you must be so happy to get it back. RRs are sometimes so risky...

Carol's Stitching said...

I just saw this freebie yesterday on the site and said that it would be on my list for must-dos for the Christmas season. How cute and I love your finishing technique!

Edna Melo said...

Olá Mylene!
Estamos meio sumidas...
Passei para ver as novidades e deixar um abraço.

Kay said...

Mylene,

Your finishes are beautiful! I love everything!

Brigitte said...

So many fobs! The recipients will be thrilled and I hope you can show us the picture with the front of the fobs very soon.
RRS - a never ending story. None of my own RRS went lost but a completed RR where I was the last stitcher was stolen. That was when I decided not to join an RR ever again. You were very lucky that you got this wonderful RR back. It will be fun to stitch the center piece.

Sabine R said...

I love your snowman (I think he's next on my list!) and your RR. So sad that you've lost some of your earlier RRs - how can people just steal them??? I'm looking forward to seeing the fronts of your scissor fobs and I'm sure that your friends will love them!
Hope you have lots of summer fun! Wish I lived near the beach as well... sigh... ;)

Sally said...

Looking forward to seeing your fobs Mylene. Whoever receives them will be very lucky and will love them I am sure.

Your ornament is so cute and your RR is beautiful:)

Tama said...

Really cute snowman! Your RR looks lovely, too - everything you've done lately is just gorgeous!

Edit said...

Mylene, your RR pillow is absolutely lovely! And when you finish, it will be really really beautiful! I have never joined an RR yet, I guess I am a bit afraid that something gets lost.

Thank you for showing your Prairie Schooler snowman. I have also downloaded the pattern yesterday and even started to stitch it :) But I am not as fast as you, mine is not finished yet.

mbroider said...

Lovely RR... Very fresh, and right for the summer!

I had recently joined an exchange group for a bookmark. I have recd from my partner, she is yet to receiver hers... Very scary this mail reaching stuff... I dont think i can muster up courage to take my next exchange:(

Linda M said...
