Phebe & Other Stuff


I had a lovely surprise in the mail today.  A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to win a giveaway from Kaaren at The Painted Quilt.  She made this scissor fob and doesn't it look gorgeous on my little scissors.  Thank you so much Kaaren.


And look who is making an appearance!  Phebe finally has her 5 sheep finished!


She has been a bit neglected lately due to Swan Lake but I am very pleased to have completed these little darlings, complete with their black faces and feet.


Another little finish is this key holder from Anni Downs' new book.  I was very lucky to have Michelle bring me back the kit from Sydney so Friday was the day for making it.  Thank you Michelle.

I am still working on Swan Lake and have nearly finished appliqueing the dollies dresses for border number 2.  My shoulder is much better and thank you to all my friends in blogland for your warm wishes.  Keeping computer time to a minimum has definately worked, although I have become a bit of a computer junkie and have found it difficult to walk past it without sitting down for a quick look!

Love your Phebe and also love those little scissors, Where did you get those?
I know what you mean about computer junkie. Just think how much sewing we would get done if we didn't spend so much time surfing and blogging-But hey looking at blogs is inspiring.
