On a roll



Seeing as I was in the mood the other day for some finishing I knew in my 'To Finish' drawer there was another wee fob to do, this one is a freebie from Dames of the Needle, I haven't quite finished it the way that was suggested I have just done my own thing, this took all of 30mins to actually stitch and another 30mins to finish, I just used some cord I had in my finishing basket and added a beed charm, I think my corners are a bit off, but never mind.

On the stitching front I have started La D Da's 'You are my Sunshine', ever since I saw this one I have so wanted to do it, so whilst I have had a couple of days off I thought I would, and it seems such a quick stitch as well. When I have finished it I'm going to make it into a pillow and give it to Mark cos he is my sunshine.
I have done some more work on Dianne NRR and I do hope that she likes what I have done cos its finished!!!

On a British board I frequent (Jaynes Attic), I have volunteered to organise the Christmas Ornie exchange - Wish me luck as this will be the first exchange I have ever organised, but I must admit I'm quite excited about it.

Be mindful of your counting on My Sunshine. For some reason I had trouble with that one. Still have to finish the border!

Your fob is so cute! You did a beautiful job on finishing it. The little bee charm on the tassel is the perfect touch.

LaDDa's 'you r my sunshine' is a great pattern. I liked it since I saw it stitched. Looks like a fun stitch! I look forward to seeing some pictures soon.

Hi Susiemac

Thank you for your kind words on my blog!! I am trying to make more progress on my Queen of the Needle project for another picture, but still have more to go with the border. Perhaps the border will all be done tomorrow so I can go on to the fun parts! I did find where they made a mistake on the pattern with one symbol short on the border as it didn't match the other side. It is on the right hand side of the border, but I am going to go and fill it in. I love your posts ! Thank you for coming in!
