A Little Treasure

I got this surprise gift from my Mum (Veronica) today ...isn't it lovely :-)) From a design by Lorri Birmingham's Fob series, it has a tiny crystal on each corner of the stitched area.

This is the first time my Mum has done a NR type of finish with the pulled thread area for the ribbon to go through and her first try at making her own cording. You would never know to look at it as it is so neat and perfectly finished even the back has our initials and the year is stitched 1/1 (very neatly may I add). The flower inside the heart was an addition of her own :))

I certainly will treasure this ..... by the way Su...watch out for your fob arriving from Mum in the near future...she's on a roll...!

Fob from my Mum

Hope you are having a nice day!! Mine has been great today, nothing like a stitchy gift to get it off to a good start, is there! Better go now and carry on with Part 2 GOL, it's all Eva's fault I haven't got it finished...lol ;-)

It's such a sweet little thing and will look so dear hanging from your scissors, or decorating a basket.

The little roll is very pretty, what a great present to get. I really like LB patterns, they have such lovely colors. Also, the little bunnies she puts in so many of her patterns are really cute.
