fobs & Easter SAL

I love stitching these alphabets and finish them off into fobs, aren't they cute!!!!
These was for the March birthdays at ESC yahoo group. Glad they were all arrived safely and in time for the birthday celebrants.


Scissor fobs
from the Cross Stitcher(U.K), january 2011
Designed by: Lesley Teare
32ct linen
DMC thread 115


Stitched part 5 last friday and made another fob/ornament out of the tiny design.




I so love the first part too so i made another one, actually two as you can see on the picture. One will be send out to another blogfriend and the other i'll keep it for myself.

Took these pics from my garden earlier this week. Quite some crocuses here and there. The garden needs some cleaning and new plants which i had intended to do this afternoon but the sun didn't show up, it had rained instead. So it was pretty cold oustside today!


Quite happy this morning as the 'mortgage' thing had some good news after 7 months. We sure need more things to follow up but atleast the big amount were all taken care off. WHEW!!! Really did a couple of happy dance around the empty living room or more like Zumba dance!!

As always, i really appreciate your visits on my blog and THANKS so much for taking the time to leave me a comment. A happy week to all!!

Amazing stitching, love the fobs, your Mojo seems well and truly back lolol. We have had a wonderful March and April has been good so far too. We have an abundance of wild primroses I just love to see them all out and now the trees are starting to get green again too.

Siobhan said...

Wonderful stitching, Mylene! I enjoyed the flower pictures, too.

Edit said...

Your fobs are absolutely lovely Mylene! I am sure the new owners will be very happy with them!

And your Easter Sal, it is such a lovely design and I love it so much that you always make an ornament as well from each part. they are really really beautiful.

Lately I have no time to stitch, I miss it very much, but even to find a few minutes at the end of the day is difficult.

Your flowers are nice too, here we have some trees with flowers but nothing more. That is the bad part of having only a little rain. And soon if the hot season starts everything will get dry.

Glad that the mortgage seems to be ok, one problem less! :)
