My very own floss fob!






Recently I emailed Annemarie to ask her where I could find the rings for those pretty floss fobs she makes. I was having some trouble locating them in my local craft store. I must admit, I have had a little fascination going on with them since she introduced them on her blog. So, Annemarie said that she would send me a few and when she did I also received this gorgeous floss fob from her! Isn't it beautiful? I love the color and she included a skein of Caron Wildflowers with it, it is the same color she stitched the fob in. On the back she put our initials. Her stitching is just lovely. Thank you so very much Annemarie, not only for your kindness, but for your time and talent in making me this special gift. I love it!

How lovely Sharon, I love Annemaries XXX's I think she has perfect tension. Sorry to hear you have been so poorly, I thought you were quiet after your recent op not thinking you were unwell:( Anyway I'm pleased to hear you are much better and got this gorgeous unexpected gift from lovely kind Annemarie at such a right time :-) Enjoy your Memorial Day.

Wow you've got quite a stitching schedule planned for yourself. Scheduling does help to keep us on track though doesn't it?
How are you feeling now?
