Stitch Red for Your Heart Exchange for Faye

I received the most wonderful, sweetest email from Faye tonight letting me know that the piece I stitched for her for the Stitch Red for Your Heart exchange arrived in its new home.

Quaker Scissor Fob
by Sharon Manspeaker @ Cross Stitch Happy
32ct Mushroom Lugana & DMC
freebie found here

And some goodies too...

Unfortunately this piece and I didn't get along... AT ALL!!  I think I spent almost as much time frogging this piece as I did stitching it, which explains all the red in my last TUSAL post!  I was almost finished and found a major counting error which ended up in restitching almost the entire back side of the fob!  Grrr...  But in the end I love how it turned out, and I love the new coffee cozy pattern I found that crocheted for Faye too.  (I'm pretty sure you'll be seeing more of these!)

Thanks again for the lovely email Faye...  I'm soo happy you are enjoying your exchange, and thanks for your patience!

Wishing you all a wonderful Friday tomorrow (yipee!) and an awesome weekend ahead :)  Hockey has wrapped up for us for the season now (yipee again!) and I'm looking forward to a relaxing weekend...  I don't think we have ANY plans for Sunday, and with fingers crossed that I won't have to go in to work, I don't even think I'm going to get dressed!  haha!  We're rolling full gear into the our busiest time of year, only 39 more sleeps until our tax filing deadline!!  So, needless to say, it might be a little quiet around here over the next few weeks.  Hopefully it will be a better year than last year (323 hours in the month of April alone) and I won't be away too much...  I get grumpy when I get behind on my stitchy bloggy reading :)

Thanks for stopping by!  Your visits and comments are appreciated more than you know :)
