Fob-u-Less Frenzy

In an earlier post I talked about my Gingher Designer scissors. I am going to make a scrapbook of them so they were gathered up for photos.

Now mind you, I do not own all of them. There are some that I do not have.

I decided that I can't wait for 2012 to start my fob project. Last night I had an open window of time so I decided to get started. I am going to do these in chronological order. My oldest one is "Cheetah", I already have a fob for this one, thanks to Chris, one of my stitching buds. And now I realize I should have a picture of it but I don't. I will next post.

The next one is "Katelynn", which came out in 2002. Here is what I came up with for Katelynn.

Lizzie Kate
28ct. Graziano home-dyed pink
DMC #333, 915, 3354, 3787
Date started stitching: 12/5/2011
Date finished stitching: 12/5/2011
Date finishing completed: 12/6/2011

What do you think? I like it! I tweaked the height a bit so the design would be 36 x 36. I had wanted to use just plain Pink Graziano, but I was out. Since I am all about using stash I already have, I settled on this home-dyed piece.

My Other Pastime...
I had some interest in seeing my advent scarf. Here is a photo of Days 1 through 5.

I am learning alot doing this and am very pleased with the results so far. I have always loved projects with a variety of things going on.

Anyway, that's it for today. Thanks for visiting.

Happy Stitching :)
