Scissor Fob

My Prairie Schooler yahoo group did a scissor fob exchange and I received this lovely fob and card made by Bev from England. It came in the mail this morning just as I was finishing hers. Today's the deadline for mailing, talk about cutting it close.

I'm meeting a friend for lunch today at the River Rock Casino the link should take you to a virtual tour of the casino, just picture me sitting there loosing my money while my friend wins ! She always wins, just one of those lucky people.

Wacky Weather

Hey what's this white stuff and why is it so cold ?? That's right we awoke to snow on the ground this morning. I can't wait till spring arrives, oh wait it did, must have missed us. I know other areas have it worse than we do, but come on it's almost April.

I have been so ill the last week, too much Easter chocolate. I know better than to over indulge, but I LOVE chocolate. I did this at Christmas and swore I would never do it again. Not to mention the weight gain, yup I ate so much it shows on the scale.

I had a big surprise last week, eHandcrafts , my favorite on-line shop, had a St. Patrick's Day drawing and I won out of 30 people ! The prize was $17.00 to spend at the shop and I am going to stock up on some dyed threads.

I have finished stitching a scissor fob and a pin keep for two exchanges I am in. Just need to put them together this weekend and in the mail. Should be able to show photos in a couple of weeks.

Hope everyone who reads my blog had a Happy Easter.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

I managed to get the stitching but not the finishing done in time. I will do that today, so it will be ready for next year :) It is stitched on 18 ct. white Aida with DMC701.

Birds is an HIH design stitched with DMC on Sassy's 28 ct. Lugana Morning Blue.
I have 3 other designs stitched for exchanges, just need to finish them. Can't show them here as I wouldn't want to spoil any surprises.
