Fun Stuff to Share!

First, I have to talk about the weather...just a little. It has been so hot and humid--as it has almost everywhere! Yesterday we went up to a friend's cabin, just about 70 miles northeast from here. It was CHILLY! I had to wear a jacket! It was a good chilly though. It just really felt good to be outside and to breathe clean fresh air!

While the boys went out fishing, my sister-in-law and I went in to town. We went to this cute little "General Store". It was fun to just browse. However, I did find something to buy.


A scissors! What else! I finally found one of these in purple. WHOO-WHOO!


Last Thursday, I had an outing with Joan and Cathy. Of course, we went to our LNS. We met another friend there, Judy, who comes down periodically from up north to go to her not-so-LNS.

While we were there, the mailman brought these...


I stitched it up last night after getting home from the lake. Today I did the finishing.



I just LOVE this scissors on this fob! Imagine that! Now there is just winter left in this fob series.


Today, I ran to Joann's to get the ribbon for my fob and I found this.


I had heard that these were coming out and am very excited to get one. Here is what is inside the pouch.


I love this! Plus, I had a 50% coupon.


Kathy A. asked what I do with all my pink stitches. I currently have them in my "pink basket" in my bedroom. However, I have kind of outgrown the basket so I am going to have maybe archive some of the pieces.


On my previous post, there were some requests for the freebies. The one from Carol D., the 2 red birds in the tree, is here.

The other one, Love, I don't think is available online. I would be happy to share it with anyone if you want to send me a message.
UPDATE:
Christine found this for us. Love is available here. Thank you Christine!


That's all I have for today. Looking forward to stitching while watching the Twins and Vikings tonight!

Happy Stitching :)

I love those scissors. I am so jealous! Your fob came out great. You are one fast stitcher.

Christine said...

I can't believe you stitched up the Lizzie Kate in just one day! You're fast, girl! Love how the blue & green scissors match it!

Love the 'lady' scissors! And I know I've seen the 'love' freebie pattern online in the past year. Just trying to remember where . . .

I found a link to the 'Love' pattern. It's by Betsy Foster of Elizabeth's Designs and it looks like it was done for Kreinik only I had a hard time finding it on their website. I ran into this link by pure mistake.
