Two More Exchange Updates

It's always a relief to learn that packages mailed have been safely received! Jeanne emailed me yesterday to say that she had received my package for the "What's the Buzz" exchange. It took me awhile to decide on a design; I finally settled on this scissors fob from Shepherd's Bush. I included some other goodies with a "bee" theme. Here's the fob front and back:




Then today, I heard from my Fair and Square partner for round two - Brenda received the block that I stitched for her. We're supposed to keep these to a 50X50 stitch count, but with her permission I went slightly larger - 51X54. You might recognize this design; it's from the bottom of the Sunflower Bellpull by The Drawn Thread.

They are both beautiful, the fob is SO pretty. I love to see all these F&S blocks in various blogs even though I haven't participated myself.

Adorable fob with exquisite finishing, and I really like the F&S blocks. I had forgotten about the Drawn Threa Sunflower design.

What lovely work you do! No wonder you don't have time to blog. Your fingers are much too busy. You did a beautiful job on Erin's RR.

Great finishes as always! I have that Bee fob sitting in my 'travel kit' at the moment ready for stitching. Great choice for the fair and square exchange too :)

The Shepherd's Bush fob is cute! And I love the square you did. Off course I am a sunflower fan so I might be a bit biased ;)
