A scissor fob for June

Hey everybody! Thought I would finally show you the project I last worked on.

Bent Creek, The Littles, Bunny
32ct lambswool, 2 over 2

This is the little scissor fob I made for June. It was her birthday yesterday and she decided to wait until then to open it. I took these pictures a week and a half ago when the peonies were still in bloom.

32ct lambswool, 2 over 2
I found the perfect letter J for her in a book from our library. I wanted one with flowers, since she loves gardening so much. The book is titled101 Weekend Cross Stitch Gifts by Lesley Teare. I used "Love Letters". I am very happy that June likes it very much.♥

I love this little bunny very much. I received this chart from Sally and stitched it up. Then I realized it would be great for June who loves rabbits. I am going to stitch him up again for myself, after I finish the poodle! Then I will pass on the Bent Creek chart. :)

I totally forgot to tell June until this very moment! I placed a 2012 American penny in that fob. Thought that would be fun and give it a little weight. :)

I am still stitching on my latest poodle magnet. I really like this one. It is my favorite thus far.♥

I am reading The Tale of Castle Cottage by Susan Wittag Albert. I like it. I have liked this whole series by her. It is The Cottage Tales of Beatrix Potter. They are based on her life in the Lake District. You know, Booklist says it best regarding these books- "A consistently charming series."

Hello to Teresa, my new follower. I am glad you found me. New followers are always welcome here!

Thank you for your many wonderful comments my friends. You are appreciated.♥ Have a fantastic day now.

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

Very nice! I've never done the beaded seams - they're really a beautiful way to finish a piece.

I saw June last night at our club meeting, we always have lots of laughter and banter whilst we are stitching. The Lake district is a beautiful part of England. x

The bunny fob is absolutely adorable, and the J on the back is gorgeous, just as pretty as your peony. I'm sure June loves it.

I'll have to check out Cottage Tales series and see if my library has any. I'm always looking for new things to read.

I read Susan's China series, unfortunately I have fallen behind in the series. I am just not reading all that much right now.
Happy Thursday!
