The Weekend is Here!

Yes, the weekend is here and I am long overdue for an update! Unfortunately, I don't have much to show! There hasn't been a lot of stitching going on here; and the stitching that I have worked on, I'm not able to share....yet.

It's going to be hot, hot, hot, and sticky here in the lower third of MN today. We've had a relatively cool summer; it's actually seemed more like spring or fall all summer. I like it that way, but there are a lot of others who have been disappointed. They will get their fix of hot for the next seven days or so.

Today I have a couple of stitchy gifts that I need to finish up, then I hope to get back to working on BOAF Friendship Sampler. Did you by any chance see Melissa's finish this week? It is gorgeous!

The only photos I have for you is a quaker fob that I stitched for Carol a couple weeks ago. Carol celebrated her birthday recently and I wanted to send her a little something.



That's it for now! Thanks for stopping by!

Cute fob!! Its nice to do a quickie among the larger projects. I like how you finished it off with the twisted cording instead of ribbon....Love that Carolina blue color too!! Faye

Great little fob you did for Carol. Thanks for pointing out Melissa's finish, although I follow her blog I had missed that post. CJ ok;-)

Ooooh, that heat! It finally left us here and we're heading for some cooler weather which is just fine by me. Much nicer for stitching!

That's a really cute fob. One of these days I will attempt one but first I have to get me one of them fancy scissors!

Thank you for the compliments on Friendship. I hope you have fun stitching it!

Lucky Carol! What a beautiful fob! We've had a mild summer in St Louis too. But the heat is coming in for us as well this week. Oh well! It was nice while it lasted!
