Making Progress

Here's an update on the BOAF Friendship Sampler -- I think I'm going to work on finishing up the border next. (Fabric color isn't quite right, it's dark here; we're expecting rain!)


Here are two fobs I stitched and sent to friends recently -- first up is a colorful hardanger fob with a "V" for Vonna who celebrated a birthday last Sunday.



And second, a fob for my BFF Joan who recently moved to Aberdeen, SD. Miss you!

That's all for now. Thanks to those who stop by for a visit; wish I had more time to leave comments on your blogs too!

Oh, Cathy! That fob you made for Vonna looks sweet enough to take a lick of, like sherbet - which sounds wonderful on a hot day like today here in Kennewick! :D

Beautiful fobs. I do not have a fob, I must learn how. I haven't had a chance to look at your tutorials, bet there is one for fobs there.
I do my own framing, also. Dearly detest getting that fabic straight.Afterwards, though, we're on a roll.
I'm so happy that God gave me the talent for creating. I have such fun teaching, gifting, and decorating with the stitching, ceramic's and just playing in the mud, Putting the piece into the kiln and painting it. Love it.
I am the clay, He is the potter.

Your BOAF Friendship is looking great! I so loved working on it. The colors are just so fun and a bit of a departure from what I've been stitching lately. Nice to see so many people pulling it out and getting it done!

The fobs are fabulous!!!!

Aw, what a pretty fob to send to your BFF! Wow, look at that beautiful BOAF!

Marie-P said...

Your Fobs are beautiful. I love, love, love the one for Vonna ~ stunning!

I did not know that Joan moved away, that can be so sad. I am always the one moving but I think it is harder on the ones left behind...too many memories.
Wishing you some free time for stitching.
