Scissorfobs & the winners!!

These were the scissor fobs that was sent out last month. Till now, i am still waiting for two who haven't sent a message if they receive it. It's more than three weeks now since it was sent so i hope by now all were receive or else maybe two were lost. These were all a surprise so noone were expecting it.



This is a pic. of the magazine where the designs came from.
((all pictures can be enlarge))

With my last post i am really surprise so many had signed in which i am really grateful to know that you want one of my finishes even if it's a little one. I really enjoyed making them and hope all the reciever will love it. I only feel guilty as i can only pick 4 winners as one was sent out the same day i posted the picture on my blog and one for me. Anyway, here are the winners: Terri~Boog, Carol, Margaret and Anita (no blog). Congratulations to all!! Please send me your address info. and will send it by next week. THANK YOU you to everyone who entered and stopped by!

Thursday evening, while waiting for hubby's phone call if he can make the last ferry to the island i started this design. This is an hour stitching and i am loving it but much as i love stitching i am more than happy to received the said call that he's on the last ferry at 9:30pm.

As you can see i cut a couple of blooms of the Hydrangea and took inside. It looks gorgeous on my kitchen table.

"Buks" is the name of the dog, here's a pic of where i took him for a walk three times a day. Whew! With all that walks for the whole week, sure had helped losing a bit of weight!! I think he has enjoyed his stay here with us. He listens quite well and follow me everywhere.

Only, i am a bit disappointed of what he did to my flowers. The owner doesn't have a garden so he has no idea what these lovely flowers are.


Again, i really appreciate all your visits and for taking the time to leave me all the kind comments. To all my new readers and followers, WELCOME! hope you will come back and take time to say hello.
A happy weekend to all!!

Mylene, your scissor fobs are so so beautiful always! I really love them and admire you to have so much patience to do them :)

I am glad to hear that your husband could catch that ferry, so it means that now he is at home with you. Have a wonderful time together!

Your flowers are beautiful, pity that the dog did not recognize that.

Have a nice Sunday,

Congratulations to the winners :)

Cath said...

Lovely fobs Mylene . Your new start looks like it will be fun to stitch .

Annie said...

Congrats to all the lucky recipients of your pretty stitching.

The doggy will get used to your flowers soon enough. He just has to learn.

Hope your weekend is going well now that DH is back.

Lisa S said...

Congratulations to all of the winners of your gorgeous fobs!

So glad your DH is home :) I know how much you miss him when he is gone.

I just pulled out that same LHN chart to work on! It is sitting right here in front of me on my desk lol I had started it awhile ago but never finished it. I don't remember why though? I didn't have much done on it. Just some of the word "Needleworker". I also did it on 16ct aida because that was all I stitched on at the time and what it called for. I think I am going to start it over on 28ct or 32ct linen as I prefer to stitch on that now :)
Looking forward to seeing yours move along.

Same thing happend when I got my puppies with my flowers. They kept digging this 1 purple coneflower I had out. The poor plant hardly grew that year but came back the next. He will learn though :)

Enjoy your weekend Mylene!
Hugs

Congratulations to all the fob winners!

The place where you took the dog for his walks looks so pretty, green, and COOL. It's so hot here; everything is brown. So sorry the pup didn't know not to romp and chew on the flowers, but they'll probably come back.

Enjoy the time you have with your husband! I know it's precious to you.

Sorry the dog trampled your flowers but I'll bet he really enjoyed those long walks!

Loraine said...

Very lucky winners! Congrats girls. Love the new fobs too Mylene.
I Love the new starts too. Cute little puppy, and beautiful views of the sea and the land.

Bertie said...

Congratulations to the winners of Mylene's beautiful fobs and you stitched so many!! they are all beautiful.
Your Hydrangea's look gorgeous in the vase, and can imagine your dismay of the garden flowers, hope you can salvage some of them.

Carol said...

Oh, I'm so happy to have won one of your lovely fobs, Mylene. As you know (from my new blog header!) I love sunflowers :)

You were so sweet to make all of those fobs for your stitching group--you are amazingly fast stitcher! Each is so pretty and special with the initial and the colorful flowers. I know they will all be thrilled.

So glad your husband is home--perhaps he can teach the dog some manners :) Your hydrangea is amazing--I've never seen one here that color...

Oh, i m so sorry about those flowers, i m sure Buks doesnt means it, he will get use to it the more he stays with you. You know, that road, makes us think of Max. I can see sadness in Jayne's eyes while we read it.

To the 4 lucky ladies who has Mylene's hand-stitched fobs, you gals are sure to love it, with the neatly stitched Xs, equisite finished beads, you gals sure love it :)

Hello Mylene, I had to have a little laugh about what the dog did to your flowers I know it is not funny but the dog was probably trying to pick some for you!!! I am sure the winners will enjoy there prizes and so glad to hear your husband is not far from home now. Happy days.

So sad your flowers got mauled by Buks!

I hope you hear from your fob recipients - your stitching and finishing are beautiful. We always proudly display the lovely pumpkin fob/ornament you made for us in the autumn. :D
