Oh my, what a beauty!

On Friday I got this amazingly beautiful scissor fob made for me by the very talented Veronica. It is soooo stunning that at first I thought it was just too good to use. I didn't want it to get lost or broken. However, I grabbed my new Ginghers and promptly placed it on them. Love it. Veronica, thank you from the bottom of my heart! And you know what... she even put a coffee pot on the end which is very apt for me as I don't drink tea - only coffee! Now, how did she know that I wonder??

Gift from Veronica

I have been working away on La D Da's Alphabet sampler which I haven't touched for a good while. As you can see, I have done a fair bit on it. I don't think it will take me long to get this done at all. Maybe a week? Although saying that I do have other things I need to get done - like, 2 exchanges, CdC, Stitch alongs coming up, RR to prepare for, other ornies for DD, DS etc. So you know, maybe I will finish it, maybe I won't. Watch this space.

I do enjoy seeing your lovely cross stitch designs! I'm also impressed at how well you are able to photograph them - I think they're difficult to do as the background fabric seems to absorb the light. Love the big alphabet letters!
Have a lovely week.

What a beautiful fob that is; I really love those beads. But then; with all that work you plan to do, you really think that you will finish the sampler? Do you do basic stuff like eat,drink, sleep and breathe?

Hi Hazel! Well, finally back in blogland and thanks for the welcome back as well as emails. Love your new sampler. I am a big sampler lover and that is mostly what I stitch along with anything from BRD. :-) The fob is very pretty. I love dressing all my scissors.

Hugs from Holland ~

Lovely gift, Hazel! Lucky you. Your La D Da looks great. I really need to stitch some of my La D Da charts--I think they are so much prettier stitched up than they appear on the charts, as evidenced by your beautiful WIP.
