Scissor Fob Exchange from Cari
Today I have received this wonderful fob from Cari for the exchange that was held on FGBB along with this pretty card you can see above. I was lucky enough to be sent these lovely Gingher scissors as a gift with the fob, they are my first Gingher scissors :)) I got some extra little gifts as well and am really delighted with it all, Cari's stitching and finishing is perfectly lovely!
If you take a close look at the tassel... you can see it is actually made up of silk ribbon, chenille type thread and the thread that was used for the fob. The cording is plaited, not twisted, the whole thing has alot of attention to detail and you can really tell that Cari has put alot of effort and thought into doing this for me :-))) I am over the moon !!
As you can see from the picture above the back has been personalised with our names and the year, just lovely isn't it :-))) Thank you very much again Cari :-))
I have been having a good time since my last posting...that night we had friends round and it was a very late night their DD and DS stayed for a sleepover to. The next morning (Sunday) it was such a nice day with some now very rare good weather so we decided to take advantage and have a day out. We drove to Ullswater in The Lakes about and hour and a half from us, starting a Pooley Bridge we got on one of the Steamers. The one we were on was called 'The Lady Wakefield' it had just recently been re-commissioned and is a beautiful boat, smells lovely too with all the new wood in it.
We got off at Howtown to do a walk not that I am a regular Hill Walker but my DH is and he has wanted us to go with him for ages. Knowing we had Hamish and our two little ones with us I knew it was not going to be too strenuous or high... unlike some of the Munros I have done with him like The Tarmachan Ridge in Scotland and The Cullins on The Isle of Skye!!
We all had great fun on Hallin Fell this hill is known as a Marilyn, Wainwright, it only took about 25 mins to get back down it (or run like Batman with your jacket up in the air if you are under a certain age ;-). The weather was good to us with no rain but the sun did keep going in and out as you can see from the pictures. Hamish had his first swim at the edge of the lake on this trip too, don't think he went much on it after he got completely wet! All pictures are clickable except from the boat.
Enjoy the rest of your week with happy stitching and thank-you for your visit :-))
