Prairie Schooler FOB Sent ~ Meet Misha

I heard from Paula C. that she received the Prairie Schooler Fans Scissor Fob Exchange that I sent so I can post pictures. Since Paula is collecting PS Christmas Ornaments I decided to stitch a Santa design. The design was a bit large for a fob, so I decided to stitch it on 32 count over one; this is how it turned out:

Prairie Schooler Scissor FOB Exchange
Stitched For: Paula C.

Designer: Prairie Schooler ~ Book #43
Design: Father Christmas
Stitched on 32ct Linen over 1
Stitched for Paula C.
I really like it when I receive a stitched item that is personalized, so I am trying to do that on the ones that I send out.

This was a fun exchange, I will be keeping my eye out for additional exchanges with this group of stitchers!

I am posting this picture especially for Rob, Michelle's husband....

Vermont Deer
A few weeks ago I was in Vermont and happened to look out the window and see five of these beautiful creatures in the apple orchard. I quickly got the camera and was able to snap their picture before they scurried off. This is almost a daily occurrence, I guess they realize that they are always safe on our 40 acres!!!
Unless of course they meet up with this critter:


MISHA!!! my 11 year old, 6 1/2 pound Yorkshire Terrier who is sweet as can be unless she sees the deer, at which time she becomes a wild beast and chases after them! The picture was taken this winter when we had a huge snowfall and the snow was too deep for her to walk in. She is quite fashionable in her faux fir coat! Yes, I am still looking for a female Yorkie puppy but have not had any luck locating the perfect one.

To answer your question Michelle: some of the blackbird Design patterns call for crushed walnut shells to fill Pincushions. :)

Thanks for taking the time to stop by.

Until next time...

Very nice fob!

Cute dog. Deer chasing Yorkie!! LOL!!

We have deer run across our 3 acre yard. They are beautiful animals, but are also very destructive and are the subject of many auto accidents around here.

Your dog is so, so sweet. I love the picture of her in the snow. Chloe and Sophie tend to hop in the snow, LOL. It's very funny to watch them.
