Lovely gifts and I love your letter S. I made my own beaded scissor fob as well a couple of years ago.

My daughter will love the elephant pictures as they are her favourite animal. I'll have to show her the pictures when she gets out of bed.

Such beautiful stitching and what a great box of goodies. I can't imagine seeing all of those wonderful animals in their natural habitat.

Lovely stitching for the RR. I love your scissor fob. Great pictures. Wonderful new stash.

I love how you personalized the S for your friend, especially the lovely ribbon flowers! I see FOBs all over the place and have no idea what they are, haha. Are they just awesome decorations for scissors or do they have some other purpose?

Such a great gift you received! No specialty threads here either, unless I order them online so I can feel your excitement! :D

Hi Cucki!

Your wintry blog looks great. Love that stitched piece for your friend. The colors are so bright, cheerful and fun. I'm sure she will love it. The scissor Fob is fabulous too. Lovely lovely beads you are using.

Enjoy your goodies from Theresa. She is so sweet and generous with her stitchy presents. Those charts look great too. They should keep you in stitches for while.

Gorgeous pics of the animals. :) Enjoy your weekend.
