Special Delivery

Tuesday the mailman brought me a special delivery all the way from The Netherlands. A few weeks ago, Heidi asked her readers what project we thought she would start next. I happened to guess correctly. Heidi made me this scissor fob for guessing correctly. Isn't it adorable?! I'm a new stitcher and I didn't have a scissor fob. I attached it to my scissors immediately! Check out Heidi's blog - she is a very talented stitcher and quilter.
I love the dragonfly!
Thank you so much Heidi. It's just beautiful!

I'm finally feeling better. After recovering from bronchitis, etc I had a bad reaction to a medication that left me feeling dizzy and nauseous for a couple of days. I finally figured out what could be causing it, stopped taking the medication and felt fine yesterday. I'm hoping to feel like sewing, stitching or knitting a bit tonight. I've missed it!

Glad you are feeling better! The scissor fob is too cute. I don't have one either, guess that's one more thing to add to my "to make" list!!

Very nice fob! Aren't fobs fun? I love them! And they do manage to help me rescue my scissors once in a while! lol! Glad you're feeling better. You should remember what medication that was that made you sick so you avoid it from now on!

Great scissor fob! I love the idea of adding a little bling to my knitting/quilting tools. My daughter makes me cute stitch markers. They are like jewelry for my knitting.

Glad to hear that you're feeling better. Love that scissor fob. I only have a couple which is a shame because of all my scissors. But I'm too lazy to make any (plus I don't know how)!

Linda said...

I already knew it... you are a winner. So nice that you won a fob. You deserve it!

I love the fob. I think I need to dig out my beads and give it a try!! I am glad you are feeling better that bug has been around here too and we had it for a few weeks. I am glad spring is around the corner.

That's a cute fob! It looks great with that black scissor.

Heidi said...

I am so glad you are feeling better now Jackie and was happy to hear that your little gift arrived safe and sound. I love making fobs to give to people. I think every pair of embroidery scissors must be properly dressed. I just got a pretty new pair of scissors for my birthday and now have to make one for it. I hope yours will make you happy as you use them. I had fun making it especially for you!

Hugs from Holland ~
Heidi
