Birthday gift



I can show you this now as I know that its arrived safely to its destination and the package has been opened (naughty, naughty not your birthday til Sunday LOL!)

The design is by A Needles Content and I stitched it on 32ct fabric using the recommended colours. The angle I took the pictures at actually make the fob look much much bigger than the scissors but it isn't really IRL.



On the back of the fob the writing is stitched using tent stitch over 1.

I'm still waiting to hear from my 'Whats the buzz' partner that she has received my exchange for her I do know that she has been on honeymoon or still is, so it shouldn't be long now til I know that its arrived safely at its destination - I don't know about you but I always worry until I know that whatever I have sent has arrived safe and sound.
I'm still waiting for my exchange to come to me I know that my partner posted in Septemeber but its not arrived just yet!

I also received a lovely little package from Isabelle at the weekend I was a lucky lady as my name was drawn out of the hat for one of Isabelles competitions and I recieved the most lovely heart and some chocolate (which I didn't share with Mark as it had nuts in and he is allergic to nuts and I cleaned and mouthwashed after I ate some of it as he is that allergic so kissing him would have been a problem) and the stitching small Au fil Aiguille magazine which is wonderful and have some plans to stitch a few things from it.

So beautiful! I was just trying to get that chart on ebay only a few days ago, but got outbid at the very end. Tricky, tricky - not telling us who this for :-)
