Fobs



Shep Bush Fob Front. I tried a different way with the cording. Instead of leaving the fob open & tucking in the cord -- I just wrapped the cording together. It is different. I'm undecided if it is better --



In My Garden - back of fob. The back motif is delicate. (not that the front is ugly -- I just think the back is so neat)



Drawn Thread freebie pattern. Do you notice how the Gingher's Lendell scissors match? The backs have no motifs.

I've struggled with sore throat, fever x 2 days -- now sneezing (etc). DH says to me "TAKE SOMETHING". Maybe he means to say to me: I don't want what you have. I'm not sure where allergies end and head cold begins. I'm trying Echinacea-Goldenseal capsules along with my Claritin-D.

You fobs look great, Lelia. I love that SB design.
Hay fever can be a real pain, can't it? Hope yours abates quickly!

Sue said...

I'm not crazy about fobs but yours are just beautiful. I can't believe how lovely your finishing is. I could probably get into stitching these if I could finish them myself. Hope you feel better soon.

Wonderful finishing Leila! Both fobs look lovely.

DH had a nasty hayfever attack yesterday - sneezed virtually all day, he looked like Rudolph in the end, bless him. Hope you're feeling better soon.

Your fobs are great, and I think I like the idea of wrapping the cording like that. I'll have to try it! You're right about it "just" being a stitching habit! It could be a whole lot worse. Hope you feel better soon.

Your fobs look great! :) I need to learn that trick with the cording so that the end doesn't show.

You asked about the fair - I'm going to be entering Chatalaine's Sampler Mystery 2, which is all done except for the beading, Emma's Garden, which needs maybe 10 - 15 more hours work, and a box with a stitched insert. The design in the insert is modified from Just Nan's "Common Ground". IF I HAVE TIME to finish them, I might also enter a small Chatelaine freebie in the small category and Mira's "Waiting for Ships" in the medium sized category. I'm thinking the mermaid is likely wishful thinking.

The fobs are gorgeous! I especially like the pairing of the Lendell scissors with the autumn theme fob. Please get lots of rest and fluids, Lelia! We want you to be well too.

You did a beautiful job of the fobs, Lelia! I don't know why you ever doubted your finishing skills. Crazy girl. ;)
