First 2007 Finish

Hooray for me! I got my first 2007 finish done! I started this on Dec. 31 and finished it today!
I made it into a little scissors fob...I ruched some silk ribbon and sewed it to the top......This is from Prairie Schooler's - Prairie Year. I stitched it on 28 ct. coffee stained (by me!) linen and used DMC threads.
This is going to some lucky participant of my Pay It Forward Challenge....hmmmm....I wonder who?!
Still have the stomach flu blues here at the's taken me 3+ days to recover and now my DH has it...the kids so far seem to be having strong immune systems...I'm praying that it stays that way. I was supposed to work this weekend, but thankfully my co-worker is trading weekends with me so I don't have to work!! YIPPEE! I'm just going to relax and get better and hopefully the kids will stay healthy.

Thanks for all your well wishes for good holidays, new year resolutions and visiting my all make me feel so good! Until next time! ;o)
I'm thankful for New Starts and New Beginnings....


  1. Great finish! I'm sure that the lucky recipient will be very pleased. :) I hope that the kids stay healthy and that your DH recovers quickly. Being sick is no fun!

  2. That looks fantastic! Great job on the coffee dye it looks so nice. :)

    Glad to hear you are feeling better. :D

  3. Vonna I LOVE the scissor fob! I had to immediately stop reading and pull my PS binder off the shelf to make sure I have Prairie Year. I do, so I can stitch one too! Not sure when I'll get to it, but yours is great - I love the ruched ribbon just on the top. Kewl idea!

  4. Wonderful finish, Vonna! Its amazing that you managed to do anything much after being so sick, poor girl.

  5. That is so pretty! The ribbon on top looks so nice too. Great touch :)

    Glad you are feeling better, I hope your DH gets better soon and your kids don't get it :( That is the worst!

  8. Ugh, good luck with that stomach bug. I hope you've chased it out of the house by now.
