Two finishes and some stitching

I have had a couple of finishes this week. The first is for Jayne's Attic Redwork Exchange so I am unable to show a picture as yet but I can say I am going to find it extremely hard to part with! I have also partly stitched the Monthly Stitching Challenge for JA and I am trying to decide whether to carry on and complete the whole piece with the one colour or stitch the corner piece in different colours so it stands out. Watch this space - reveal day is August 30.  

The second finish is a scissor fob for the Monthly Finishing Challenge for August. This is a really tiny fob as I stitched one over one on the same raw linen that I used for the scissor pocket and it was not very easy to finish but I got there. I'm sorry about the poor photos but the light is really bad here today - I think the summer may have passed if the past few days are anything to go by!

Still no news on the Quaker Friendship Round Robin. It appears that there are 3 pieces missing and we are assuming they are with the one person who has moved house. Maybe they are travelling the globe and will eventually make their way back to the sender. We can but hope.

I have also stitched my piece for HOE Halloween exchange. We don't celebrate Halloween here in the UK (or at least we don't) so this is not something I would have normally chosen to stitch but I enjoyed it and it's kind of cute. I have no idea how I am going to finish it yet but I am sure I will come up with something. 

And now it's back to Hannah Beeby.

Thanks for visiting
Take care

    Wonderful little fob. Fingers crossed for the missing RRs.

    Your friends photography is stunning, especially in black and white.

    What a gorgeous fob Carol! It's so tiny!

    Hope the RRs turn up. Got a bit of bother with the one I organised a while ago but I think it might be sorted soon.

    What a sweet little fob!

    The fob is adorable, what a cute finish. I hope the Quaker RR pieces surface soon, how stressful and frustrating to have them hung up somewhere and not be sure what is going on. Hannah is such a neat piece, it is looking lovely.

    Your little fob is so cute, and it goes perfectly with the scissor case.

    I hope the RRs will turn up again one day. How frustrating.

    What a cute little fob, congratulations.

    I hope everyone's RR's turn up soon.

    A lovely fob! :)
    I've e-mailed Edgar to commiserate...my RR and another ladies is being held by a stitcher that will not communicate with either of us. She communicated with a fellow stitcher in our group, over a month ago saying she was sending them on...but not received. I understand the frustration and anger that is felt. I just don't understand why some just flake out...don't hold them just send them on if you're going to flake.

    Congrats on your fob. It's so cute and tiny! You did good. :)

    Your teensy fob makes me smile. Now you've gone and made me want to try something else new - over one stitching! But first I still have to get that tin topper done...
