I feel really Lucky......


... to have received such a wonderful PIF from Cindy , I didn't get one PIF I received 2. Cindy made me a gorgeous beaded fob with the most beautiful pimk glass beads and a butterfly charm and I found out from her that she had made it herself - I think she is going to post a tutorial soon on how to make them its really lovely.


The second fob to show that Cindy made is a beautifully stitched one by The Sweetheart Tree and its called Cherry Blossoms fob, its so lovely, I love the colours and the pretty beaded edged its really lovely.

I took close up pictures of both the front and the back of the fob, and you can see a closer look at all those wonderful Algerian Eyelet stitches and the pretty coloured thread that Cindy used.


Thankyou again Cindy for both of these wonderful fobs.

I am still busy stitching the Elizabethan pocket I'm 3/4 of the way through it now and I really love it, it seems to have taken me longer than normal to stitch this small project and I can't figure out why, but I am really happy with the way its turning out.

I started my new job yesterday and everyone is so nice - I think I am going to enjoy working with them, I'm the only female amongst 8 men, but they seem to be a good bunch.

What a fabulous PIF from Cindy! She's a talented stitcher and here she's made a beautiful beaded fob also! Congrats :)
I'm ever so glad that you have started your new job and its going swimmingly! Sometimes, I find it easier to work with men than women, so maybe you'll find it the same!

Su, what really lovely PIF gifts. The fobs are so unusual and really complement each other. I love the algerian eye stitches and the gorgeous beaded edging. I would love to know how to do that. It finishes off the fob perfectly.

Hope to chat to you soon :>)
Warm hugs, Angela

I just needed to post again to thank you for your lovely embellished bag tutorial a few months back - I used the instructions to finish a piece for the SBEBB this past week. Mine didn't turn out as nicely as yours, but I'm going to keep practicing!

This is SO beautiful !! I really like it :-))

Heidi said...

Hi Su! Both fobs are so pretty. I just sat up until midnight making a few beaded fobs. Once you get started, it is hard to stop and I need one for a swap gift. The charm are yours is so pretty and delicate. With the great work on the hardanger stitched fob, I think it would be hard to pick a favorite of the two. Enjoy them!
