Needle and Thread, a finish.


Its been a hot few days and I do NOT do well with the heat. After a month of rain, this heat brings on the humidity. Most people take advantage of the nice weather to get outside. I use this heat as an excuse to stay inside. (Okay, so I went out and played softball with my Granddaughter on Sunday then hurried back inside.)


I think I mentioned on my last post that I was in the process of working on Little House Needlework's Needle and Thread, and that the fob stitching was finished. It's all done, and I'm now looking for a box to top with the main stitched piece. The fob has been finished into a scissor fob. I did not stitch this fob on the fabric Diane chose for it. I used the 32 count fabric, color unknown, that I used for the main piece. I think it made a very acceptable size. I filled the fob with plastic pellets for weight.




Last weekend I pulled all the DMC for Little House Neighborhood and got started on that. It's coming along nicely. I have two houses nearly finished. I'm stitching it on 32 count R & R Cotton and doing it as a SAL with a friend in Scotland.

Thank you for all the encouraging comments you left on my last post. It was a very difficult time for me, and you all helped more than you know. I have heard from that person since then. Isn't it crazy how close you can feel to someone you have never met? I think blogging does that for us. Allows us to meet and get to know so many different kinds of people. And we are all as varied as the designs we like to stitch. Thank you, all of you, for being my friend, for visiting my blog and leaving comments. YOU ALL ROCK!!!

Super cute stitching, Debs! Congrats on the finishes. I love that fob!

I am glad that you heard from your friend. ((((((((((((Debs))))))))) As for me, I am woefully behind in everything--got the eldest home from college and the house is in chaos--but I will e-mail you soon! :)

Gorgeous work, Debs! I'm so glad you mentioned stuffing your fob with pellets. I have some to fill and was wondering what to use. I'm not a fan of walnut shells because I know for sure that they will bleed if ever they get wet. My grandmother had a black walnut tree in the front yard, and, oh, was it a bleeder!!! LOL
I love your stitching. Hugs, Deb

I'm glad you did hear back from your friend Deb. Great job on the recent finishes - I love filling my fobs with the little pellets too...once you buy a bag of them it seems like you are set for life - I may never use all mine up!
